It's already at *nomax members, sitting at 31000 currently. I'll be testing
my monitor/emailer tomorrow.

Just curious, why not set it to *nomax, and send an email alert if > 29000.

At least it won't explode in production.

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.

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.

I can write it any way that I need to. I'm doing some testing using that
in
interactive SQL - what is number_partitions? Is that the number of
members?

... and it takes quite a while to run for a large number of members in the
file.

Are you allowed to use SQL imbedded into rpg? For example

select NUMBER_PARTITIONS into :NbrMbrs
FROM SYSTSTAT
WHERE SYSTEM_TABLE_SCHEMA='ROB'
and SYSTEM_TABLE_NAME='MYFILE'
