How to find out the memory used by the VSAM file. I can able to see only the allocated space in the IDCAMS LISTCAT ALL command.

Code:
TYPE------CYLINDER
PRI-------------40
SEC-------------10

How can I know the how many CYLINDERS used by my VSAM file currently?
Please help me.

in IT good terminology is essential to good communication and understanding ...

the term commonly used for this <memory> is usually referred as [dasd]-space with the distinction between allocated and used

real storage is generally used to refer to the <memory> of the mainframe

all You might want to know about VSAM can be found here

and
http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/abstracts/sg246983.html?Open

for the whole series of ABCS
search the ibm redbooks url wit ABCS SYSTEM PROGRAMMING

and naturally the IBM DFSMS manuals starting from
http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/z/os/zos/bkserv/index.html

and in the hope that this suggestion will not prevent You from reading and researching the manuals

the percentage of space used can be calculated as ...

( high used RBA / high allocated RBA ) * 100
