E$LSZ - List Library Sizes

What it does

Fills a file called E$LSZP in library E$LIB with the total size of the contents of each library on the system. The file has the following columns: 'Library name' and 'Size (in Mb)'. Each time E$LSZ is run, old data in file E$LSZP is overwritten with the newer data.

This tool is mainly used for a statistical comparison over a certain period of time of the growth of various libraries. If you want to follow the development only for a few libraries, you will have to create ODBC queries which only retrieve the data you want. You cannot do this with E$LSZ; it always lists all present libraries.

You can download the contents of E$LSZ directly into a spreadsheet or a local database table.


Here's a table wih some contents of E$LSZP after E$LSZ has run:
