Issue/Introduction

The LISTAPTF command should be used to monitor the APPLFILE usage.  This Knowledge Base article explains the output of the LISTAPTF command. 

 



Environment

Release: All Release ESP Workload Automation

Cause

The CYBESUT1 utility with the ANALYZE option should be used to diagnose issues, and not to monitor the APPLFILE usage.  The LISTAPTF command is recommended to display file usage.

3600 total slots, 288 (8%) used slots, 359 (10%) free slots
-  3600 total slots - How many slots are there in the formatted file.
-  288(8%) are in use by active applications.
-  359(10%) are free. These slots no longer have application data that can be referenced.
NOTE: More information below on free slots. (The remainder 82%)

109 (3%) reserved slots, 179 (5%) unreserved used slots
-  Applications that are built hold slot in reserved and unreserved. It is a breakdown of used/allocated slots. This information may be useful to help diagnose an issue.

2953 (82%) delayed free slots, 2584 delayed free records.

-  2953 delayed free slots(delete/delay queue) = total slots - used slots - free slots. All of these slots can be reused if needed. The applications in delete/delay status can still be referenced. ESP will use free slots first and then start releasing the slots in the delete/delay queue.


-  Each record is an application generation. Application generations can hold more than one slot.

NOTE: The delayed free slots can still be referenced by a LAP command on a complete application.
