Display the largest spool files on the system and also show the user ids that are using the most spool space. The number of the largest spool files displayed is variable, and defaults to 10. The information can also be written to a file.
The exec requires the IBM class D query commands for query reader, punch, print, and allocation (alloc). It also requires the IBM class E query img, nss, nls, and trfiles commands. If the IBM class B query dump command is available, the amount of allocated spool space for a dump is also displayed. The data is collected using only these CP commands - the exec does not examine real memory or read spool file blocks from disk.
The syntax of the command is:
SPOOLPIG lines (FILE fn ft fm
- The number of spool files and users to output. The default is 10 lines.
- If this option is specified, write the output to a file. Otherwise, the output is displayed on the screen.
- fn ft fm
- The name of the file to write to. The default is nodeid SPOOLPIG A, where nodeid is the node id from the IDENTIFY command.
