PTF Save FilesPublished by: John Dowling on 31 Jan 2014 view comments(4)
I have a lot of save files (QMFxxxxx / QSIxxxxx) in QGPL. they look like save files from PTF's (2010,2011,2012,2013). I am looking to clean up the system. My question is that I should be able to delete these save fle, Right.
You should use the DLTPTF command, if possible. It makes sure the PTF index is updated, and it also takes care of associated cover letters (which are members in file QAPZCOVER).
You can't use DLTPTF PTF(*ALL) LICPGM(*ALL), but the number of licensed programs is relatively small compared to the number of PTFs. Typically I'd do DLTPTF PTF(*ALL) LICPGM(xxxx) for each licensed program. Or, of course, you can name a specific PTF(xxx). I normally let RLS() default to *ALL, but if you have System Manager (SM1) you might need to be more careful with that.
I think there's also a cleanup function in Management Central in the Navigator, but I don't think I've ever done it from there.
Thanks Dale. I picked up 2% on my disk space.
John, you may want to run the DSPLIBSIZE command to see which libraries have the largest sizes on your system.
You only need the runtime version of COZTOOLS (which is free) to use that command.
John - do you pwrdwn/up on occasion? If not, consider doing it. I often see 5% or more increase in disk space as a result.
