IT Jungle finished posting my latest series on reorganizing IBM i files to improve disk performance.
In this two-part series, I created a template for detecting and reorganizing your most active files to improve disk processing efficiency. My template covers the following four areas to create a file reorganization strategy.
- Setting up a procedure for identifying files and members that need reorganization.
- Properly setting up your Reorganize Physical File Member (RGZPFM) statements.
- Identifying times that critical files can be reorganized.
- Rinse and repeat.
Click here to read part 1 which covers step 1, identifying files and members that need reorganization.
Click here to read part 2 which covers steps 2-4.
Taken together, these articles comprise a reasonable plan for increasing disk efficiency through file reorgs.
