When should I execute a DEFRAG against my IXX770 database file for CA 7?

 Why does the following message occur in the CA 7 STC during initialization time and again directly after midnight?

*CAL2SM00I Area: IXX DBID: 0770 Full: nn.nn%

*CAL2SM01W Area: IXX DBID: 0770 Full: nn.nn%


The CA 7 STC will generate a CAL2SM00I on each database file at during initialization time and again directly after midnight to show the current allocations of each CA Datacom/AD area.  A defragmentation bi-weekly makes the CA Datacom/AD index function more efficiently and reclaims space in the index. 

The CA 7 STC will generate a CAL2SM01W indicating that CA WA CA 7 Edition is over 80 percent in its current allocation.  This situation could cause a CA WA CA 7 outage to occur if the area becomes full. 

The following DBUTLTY can be run from the CAL2JCL(AL2DEFRG) install library at any time with while the CA 7 STC is active or inactive.  The parm ‘DEFRAG’ must be present to reclaim any unused space.

Note:  The DEFRAG option can only be used for the IXX770.

The following DBUTILITY can be submitted to reclaim the unused space.

//AL2DBFRG JOB (ACCTINFO),PGMR,CLASS=A,MSGCLASS=A                              

//*  Sample job to defragment CA Datacom Index.                                

//*  This job may run while CA 7 is active.                                    

//DEFRAG   EXEC PGM=DBUTLTY,REGION=4M
