1) I have a requirement to extract all the PDS(PDS only) that have the HLQ as XXX.*
2) With that list we have a requirement to extract all the PDS that use more than 80% allocated space.
For the first requirement,
I used 3.4 option and gave xxx.* with include Additional qualifiers option set to YES.
It was a huge list and tried to put the SAVE LIST command, but it was taking lots of time (I mean LOTS LOTS LOTS) and i cancelled it.
Will this operation load the mainframe too much? (I mean affecting production jobs)
I have very limited knowledge with catalogs, Will this occupy the catalog too much that it affects production job anyway.
I am aware of second requirement, but not sure about first.
Any advice please?

Sometimes I've needed to locate certain SYS1. datasets, and not knowing the second qualifier, I'd do the same 3.4 and got back a large return and it did take some time - mostly wall clock - because the request ends up searching just about all catalogs in the system.
Slow response does not always mean high CPU.....
