Question: 

 Is there a report or command to determine the database usage information for files in CA 11 to indicate how full they may be?

Answer: 

The Datacom DBUTLTY can be used to report on DATABASE USAGE of the CA-11 files to see how full the files may be.

Use the following JCL:

 

//* REPORT ON DATABASE USAGE
//STEP1       EXEC PGM=DBUTLTY,REGION=4M 
//STEPLIB     DD DISP=SHR,DSN=hlq.CUSLIB 
//            DD DISP=SHR,DSN=hlq.CAAXLOAD 
//CXX         DD DISP=SHR,DSN=hlq.CXX 
//SYSPRINT    DD SYSOUT=* 
//SYSOUT      DD SYSOUT=* 
//SYSPUNCH    DD DUMMY 
//DDSNAP      DD SYSOUT=* 
//SNAPER      DD SYSOUT=* 
//SYSUDUMP    DD SYSOUT=* 
//SYSIN       DD * 
COMM OPTION=STATS,DBID=601 
REPORT AREA=CXX,DBID=601,TYPE=A

NOTE: If you are using a DBID other than 601, it should be specified instead.

At release 11.0 the database usage for CA 11 can be displayed using the following command:

COMCHAR DIS SPACE

(where COMCHAR is the value defined in the config file)
