The ESPWA r11.4 PTF RO67015 introduced a delete/delay queue in APPLFILE for better cleanup functionality, it changes the format of LISTAPTF command.

MONITORING THE APPLFILE USAGE:
It is now recommended that the LISTAPTF command be used to monitor the APPLFILE usage. In the past some clients ran the CYBESUT1 utility in analyze mode to check on the status of the file. This utility should only be used to diagnose issues.

LISTAPTF LINE BY LINE EXAMPLE:

OPER LISTAPTF

FORMATTED AT 15.01.30 GMT ON TUESDAY JANUARY 6TH, 1998
3600 total slots, 288 (8%) used slots, 359 (10%) free slots
109 (3%) reserved slots, 179 (5%) unreserved used slots
2953 (82%) delayed free slots, 2602 delayed free records
Oldest slot is 450, slot size is 4096

3600 total slots, 288 (8%) used slots, 359 (10%) free slots
1) 3600 total slots - How many slots are there in the formatted file.
2) 288(8%) are in use by active applications.
3) 359(10%) are free. These slots no longer have application data that can be referenced.
NOTE: More information below on free slots. (The remainder 82%)

109 (3%) reserved slots, 179 (5%) unreserved used slots
1) Applications that are built hold slot in reserved and unreserved. It is a breakdown of used/allocated slots. This information may be useful to CA support to help diagnose an issue.

2953 (82%) delayed free slots, 2584 delayed free records.
NOTE: The delayed free slots can still be referenced by a LAP command on a complete application.
1) 2953 delayed free slots(delete/delay queue) = total slots - used slots - free slots. All of these slots can be reused if needed. The applications in delete/delay status can still be referenced. ESP will use free slots first and then start releasing the slots in the delete/delay queue.
2) Each record is an application generation. Application generations can hold more than one slot.
