12.1 Data Set Usage - $US

The $US command displays data set usage information contained in the VTOC (or VSAM catalog) for specified data sets or any ageable VSAM object. $US can be issued interactively in batch mode, as a TSO command, or from the ISPF Disk Space Management Utility panel (see the IPSF User's Guide for details). Specifying a high-level node or a generic subset of a node displays usage information for a group of data sets. Usage information for VSAM objects not known to the current catalog environment is not available. Usage data consist of the following:

■ Total usage

■ Date of last use

■ Date, time, and user ID of the last update

Note: This usage data is only available when the CA-ASM2 OPEN modification is installed.

See page 4-72 in the Getting Started Guide section for additional information regarding this modification.
