The Display Member Statistics command displays or prints the member
statistics captured by the CVTMBRD command. The member statistics
include fields such as the number of reads, updates, deletes, access
path builds, etc. Different sequences can be specified. Member
statistics are only kept by the system for physical file members.
The system refreshes the data on each IPL. Therefore, if you are
going to analyze the member statistics, you will probably want to
capture the information shortly before a power down. Capturing the
information is a slow performer. You may want to do this as a
regular batch job which runs off-shift.
The data must be captured first by the CVTMBRD command or an
equivalent DSPFD command (see later discussion). The DSPMBRSTAT
command may be used to display or print the information in a variety
Assume CVTMBRD has been used to capture member information in the
file CVTMBRP. A typical DSPMBRSTAT command would be:
DSPMBRSTAT CVTMBRD(CVTMBRP) SEQFLD(*READS)
A spooled file would automatically be displayed with the member
information displayed in descending sequence on the 'number of data
base reads'. The member with the most number of reads would be first
in the listing.
Since the default TYPE(*TYPE1) was specified, the data would include
the number of:
- Data base reads
If TYPE(*TYPE2) is specified, the fields shown include the number of:
- Records in the member
- Clear operations (such as CLRPFM)
- Access path builds
- Reorganizations (such as RGZPFM)
- Data space copies (see later definition)
Depending on the TYPE (*TYPE1 or *TYPE2), only specific SEQFLD values
may be entered. The SEQFLD must be one of the fields that will print
with the TYPE specified.
You can also include only those records that are greater than a
certain value in the SEQFLD. For example, if you want to list only
those members that have had some additions to the member, use the
DSPMBRSTAT escape messages you can monitor for
None. Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.
The system does not guarantee the information that is provided.
However, you can rely on the information to provide a picture of your
data base activity.
CVTMBRD Command or DSPFD equivalent
The normal method of building a file that can be analyzed by
DSPMBRSTAT is with the CVTMBRD command. It will allow various
selection capability including the ability to omit libraries, source
You should specify FILETYPE(*PF) as the system only keeps member
statistics on physical file members.
Command parameters *CMD
CVTMBRD The qualified name of the file that was output by
CVTMBRD or an equivalent DSPFD command (see the tool
documentation for a discussion). The file name
defaults to CVTMBRP. The library value defaults to
*LIBL. *CURLIB may also be used. The first member
of the file will be processed.
LIB The library or generic library name to be processed.
*ALL is the default meaning all library names in the
FILE The file or generic file name to be processed. *ALL
is the default meaning all file names in the CVTMBRP
MBR The member or generic member name to be processed.
*ALL is the default meaning all member names in the
TYPE Which type to be used. *TYPE1 is the default and
includes the information for file opens, total data
base reads (both Arrival and Keyed sequence), keyed
data base reads, adds, updates, and deletes.
*TYPE2 may be specified to include the information
for the number of records, the number of clear
operations (such as CLRPFM), the number of access
path builds or rebuilds, the number of data space
copies, and the number of reorganizations (such as
The number of data space copies is the number of
times a function such as CPYF with FROMRCD(1) and
COMPRESS(*NO) has been specified which causes large
blocks of records to be written at one time to the
SEQFLD Which field to sequence on. The default is *NONE
which means the order of the records in the file
named for the CVTMBRP parameter.
Each of the fields that are accumulated may be
specified if printed with the correct TYPE value.
See the TYPE parameter for further discussion.
For TYPE(*TYPE1), you may specify:
*OPEN Number of opens to the member
*ADD Number of records added to the member
*UPD Number of records updated in the member
*DLT Number of records deleted in the member
*READS Number of records read
For TYPE(*TYPE2), you may specify:
*NBRRCDS Number records in the member
*APBLD Number of access path builds or rebuilds
*CLEAR Number of clear operations such as CLRPFM
*RGZ Number of reorganizations such as RGZPFM
*COPY Number of data space copies
SEQ How to sequence on the SEQFLD field. The default is
*DESCEND for descending sequence. The value is
ignored if SEQFLD(*NONE) is specified.
*ASCEND may be specified to sequence in ascending
SELSEQ Whether to include all or some of the values in the
SEQFLD. The member must have activity 'greater than
or equal' to the value entered to be considered.
The default is 0 to allow all member records to be
listed if they meet the criteria specified for the
LIB, FILE, and MBR parameters.
The intent of the SELSEQ parameter is to avoid
clutter if you are analyzing a field such as the
number of access path rebuilds (SEQFLD = *APBLD).
By specifying a SELSEQ value such as 1, you can omit
members that have not had an access path build or
OUTPUT The type of output. * is the default which means to
display the information for an interactive job. If
the command is run in batch, the results are
*PRINT may be specified to print the results.
The system does not guarantee the complete accuracy of the
information, but in general it provides a good picture of activity.
You must first convert the DSPFD *MBR information to the file
specified on the CVTMBRP parameter. Either the CVTMBRD command or a
DSPFD command as described previously can be used.
The following TAA Tools must be on your system:
CHKGENERC Check generic
EDTVAR Edit variable
HLRMVMSG HLL Remove message
RTVSYSVAL3 Retrieve system value 3
SNDCOMPMSG Send completion message
SNDESCMSG Send escape message
SNDSTSMSG Send status message
The tool is ready to use, but you must first build the data base file
to be processed with the CVTMBRD command or the equivalent DSPFD
