Issue/Introduction



Is the HIGH USED TRACK value for a database Area seen in a CA Datacom CXX report available in any Dynamic System Table (DST)?
DST table DIR_DATASET column TOTAL_TRACKS is not the same.

Environment

z/OS

Resolution

There is no equivalent DST column as of yet although this may be provided in future.

The CXX HIGH USED TRACKS is the highest track that has been used to this point while DST DIR_DATASET TOTAL TRACKS is the full size of the data set.
The only time they will match is if the Datacom Area had been populated through to the final track.
