I am having a KSDS datset . I want to create another KSDS dataset according to same specification of the previous one.ie, it should have the same free space same keylength .Is there any way for doing that?

Also is there any way to know the keylength key of freespace bufferspace etc of an existing KSDS .I tried with LISTCAT command but its not giving all the values that i require .Is there any other way to know all the statistics of an existing VSAM datset?

Thanks in advance icon_smile.gif

If you are having the file-aid in your shop,you can easily figure out all the details from the utilities menu and then VSAM.

Code:


File-AID ------  VSAM Information - (Page 1 of 2 ) ----------------------------
COMMAND ===>                                                                   
Catalog:  ICFCAT.PD2                                                           
Cluster:  'XXXX.XXX.XXXX'                                                   
Data:     'XXXX.XXX.XXXXD'                            Data Volume:  XXXXX0 
Index:    'XXXX.XXX.XXXXI'                            Index Volume: XXXXX0 
 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Data Component Information:                       Current Allocation Options: 
 Device type:             3390                     Load option:          SPEED
 Organization:            KSDS                     Write check:             NO
 KSDS key length:           40                     Buffer space:          9728
 KSDS key location:          2                     Erase on delete:         NO
 Average record size:       97                     Imbedded index:          NO
 Maximum record size:     3500                     Replicated index:        NO
Allocated Space:    Unit    Primary  Secondary     Reuse option:           YES
 Data:         CYLINDERS          5          2     Share option:           2-3
 Index:           TRACKS          1          1     Spanned records:         NO
Dataset Date Information:                          Key ranges present:      NO
 Creation date:         05/28/1998                 AIX-unique keys:           
 Expiration date:                                  AIX-upgrade:               
 Modification date:     06/10/2006                                             
 Modification time:     00:15 AM  GMT                                         
                                                                               
se ENTER to access additional pages, END to return to utility menu             


If you press enter again,you can see the few more details like
Current Utilization in Tracks:
Current Allocations in Tracks:
KSDS Index Allocation in Tracks:
Data - Control Area Information:
Control Interval Information:

At the same time you can also create the file with the same attributes with file-aid.


Thank you
Krishy

Hi philipraju,
I am not sure whether you are having the same options in your shop or not.We use A.F.3.5 to create the test VSAM file with the same properties of the production VSAM file.Ofcource,you need to chang few parameters like Space etc..

First you need to select the F(file-aid) in the ISPF/PDF PRIMARY OPTION MENU.then you will get the PRIMARY OPTION MENU for the file-aid.
Then select the option 3 (UTILITIES).
This menu is going to have the option VSAM(5) ,use that one and check what are all the available options(A-->ALLOCATE,D-->DELETE etc..).

While allocating you can give the model data set name under "specify model dataset info".

Thank you
Krishy
