SYSVIEW Performance Management Option for DB2 for z/OS

Issue/Introduction

Question related to Sysview for Db2 for z/OS request R/SYSWKDB - Workfile DB Utilization Summary.

Workfile Space Used (KB) / By All Agents For DGTT / Config is field WFSPC-DGTT-PREF-KB.
Workfile Space Used (KB) / By All Agents Except For DGTT / Config is field WFSPC-PREF-KB.

Sysview for Db2 for z/OS shows a value for WFSPC-DGTT-PREF-KB (134218K) significantly larger than WFSPC-PREF-KB (56758K).

On this subsystem there are only two DGTT preferred workfiles with a max capacity of 128GB.
Whereas there are 30 non DGTT preferred workfiles, each at approximately 2GB.
Would expect to see a much smaller value for WFSPC-DGTT-PREF-KB.

Workfile Space Used (KB) 32768 29695K 49152 190976K
By All Agents For DGTT 0 2745344 0 134218K <<<<<<<<<<
