Running CA Datacom DBUTLTY REPORT AREA=CXX, TYPE=A data area space utilization report after deleting records form the database.
The PERCENT FULL value goes down but the PERCENT MAX value stays the same.
Can the PERCENT MAX value be reset?
Release : 15.1
Component : CA DATACOM/DB
The CXX keeps track of the maximum number of blocks used since the the area was last initialized. This value is used to calculate maximum percent full in the CXX report.
It is not reset unless the area is re-initialized.
If the area is extended the maximum number of blocks used remains the same but the calculated maximum percent full will reflect the new lower percentage.
The only way to reset this value is to do a BACKUP, INIT and LOAD of the area.
