In order to see IFS object level detail, I think the save needs to specify Retain Object Detail *YES

Backup List ASP Activity Object While Message Sync
Seq Items Type Device SMTWTFS Detail Active Queue ID

Well, if you explain your issue during the PMR perhaps they'll tell you the underlying tables to query.

After more research, I did find this.

1) PRTRPTBRM to spool file has duration accurate to the second.
PRTRPTBRM to an outfile is ignoring the seconds, only down to the minute.
Not sure if this is WAD or a defect.
Open a PMR for this.

2) What tool, if any will show detail of the IFS part of the save?

I'm using PRTRPTBRM, dumping to an outfile, then sorting, to identify
my largest and longest objects during a save.
I'm seeing two entries for every library saved, the second one being
from my auto dup immediately following the save.

I reran PRTRPTBRM, changing the end date/time hoping to NOT include
the auto dup.
SBMJOB CMD(PRTRPTBRM PERIOD((180000 092915) (201600 092915))

I'm still seeing two entries.
The entry from the auto dup, 204132, is still appearing, even though
it was after the end/date time, 201600.

Any thoughts from the group?

Seems the specified PERIOD() value did not effect proper selection for
the data that was generated\placed-in the specified Output File
(OUTFILE) and member. Seems likely that the output was generated by an
SQL request [insert into qgpl/prtrptbrm select ... from qusrbrm/...
where ...], and that SQL request would be visible via Database SQL
features such as a detail monitor or SQL statement cache or possibly even
Print SQL Information (PRTSQLINF) of the BRMS program that eventually
generates the report. A SWAG is that the predicate(s) in the WHERE clause
presumably were not properly converted into the format of the data stored
in the file in the QUSRBRM library, and probably the same form
CYYMMDDHHMMSS as the corresponding field in the OUTFILE that was created
from the "file QA1ABS in library QBRM with the format name QA1ABS".

I found no relevant APARs with the following symptoms [nor with fewer
tokens, repeated searches, each with last token dropped]:

Seems already [per a followup reply] that the issue was circumvented by
implementing proper predicate(s) against the generated data, to properly
pare the records of interest to the desired PERIOD().
