VM:Spool provides four utilities that create a database of information about the spool-space activity of your system. 


These utilities optionally generate accounting records that are based on the data. If you include the DATABASE record in the VMSPOOL CONFIG file, the utilities run automatically.

A summary of the database utilities and what they do follows:

    Generates the database and updates it periodically with new information about spool files.
    Uses the information that is stored in the database to create a file containing type C0/AB accounting records.
    Sends the accounting records created by VMLDBB to CP.
    Purges database records that contain obsolete spool-file information.
