Hi,
I have a program which uses a Huge VSAM file. When we ran strobe on it, it showed that the maximum CPU is in the command "START"
the exact statement
Code:
START STRFILE
     KEY IS NOT < FC-KEY


Please suggest with any option for tuning or any other method to access the VSAM file.
Thanks,
Viji

FC-KEY is the/a key, isn't it?
This is just a quick look at the index, it shouldn't take long unless the index is poorly structure has problems.
How many index levels are there?

I am not sure how to find the levels of index. When I try to do a info in fileaid for this vsam it says

Code:
INDEX COMPONENT: 'VK824G7.VSAM.STRMSTR.INDEX'

only.

Appreciate your help.
Thanks,
