Question:

What ways in CA View can be used to lower disk space usage?

Environment:
CA View - All Releases
Answer:

The View functions that can lower disk space usage are: 

 . Forcing a View backup with "/F sarstc,IDUMP", which will perform an interim backup.

 . Running SARDBASE REORG ASYNCH, which can be run with the database tasks active. 

 . Use of SARINIT TAPECLSL=..., which will write reports directly to tape and not use any disk space. 

 . Using lower disk retentions with SARINIT NGEND and ERO parameters DRETPD, DGENS, and DCOPIES. 

 

. If the database contains large reports, that are on both disk and tape, the "DD" line function (or SARBCH /DELETE DISK ...) can be used to delete a report from disk.
