I can probably use the imbedded sql way. I'm thinking I can set it as
once-a-day program, run after nightly IPL. If a certain threshold is
reached (say 29000 members), send an email alert. That should give us a few
days lead time to do some cleanup.

Subject: RE: How many members in a file?

Yes, partitions is a database way of saying members.
Looking at the view that is in that view perhaps I can see why it takes so
long. It summarizes a count of all the partitions within that table. I'm
sorry, members within that file.

The API earlier suggested to retrieve the file description may be a better
performer. But a lot longer development time.
