unused storage on AIX 4.3

Hi,

How do I query for unused partition in AIX 4.3 with DAS and SAA storage?

I know most unix administrator don't put all the capacity on the system at once.

thanks,
vene

Use "lsvg <vgname>" to see all the diskspace assinged to filesystems in the "USED PPs" section and the diskspace available to extend filesystems in the "FREE PPs" section. Both of these values are in the right column of the output, near the top.

Keep in mind, though, that "used PPs" is NOT meaning that this space is used, but it is allocated to a filesystem. It could very well be unused, because the filesystem is empty.
