The FINDDUPKEY Find Duplicate Logical Key


Uncontrolled growth in the number of logical files in your system can adversely affect
both your storage levels and your performance. The big question is, which ones to
get rid of?

The simple answer, if you suspect you have duplicate logical files, is to identify these
duplicates. These files share exactly the same number of keyes, in the same
ascending/descending order, the same unique setting, the same selection criteria
and the same join specifications.

The purpose of the FINDDUPKEY utility command, is to pin-point the duplicate logical files
that clog your system.

This command can work in two different modes:

Mode1: Find duplicate logical files related to an individual physical file

Mode2: Find duplicate logical files for logical files matching a given pattern in a library.

Happy Cleanup!
