Q;

Can I customize the Listcat Plus report for our situation?


A:

Yes.  There are a number of reporting options and warning message thresholds in the parameter record that can be customized.  Some of the parameters that generate warning messages or flags when they are exceeded are percent and tracks of unused space, CI and CA splits, percent of wasted space (due to the record length and CI size), index levels, days since updated, and extents.  Parameters that control the format and content of the report include the sequence (data set , volume or catalog), candidate volumes, warning messages, and reports (VSAM, non-VSAM or both).
