The Reorganize Active File (RGZACTF) command is similar to the IBM command Reorganize Physical File Member (RGZPFM).

The following items describe the ways in which the RGZACTF command differs from the IBM command RGZPFM. The RGZACTF command:
  • Performs reorganization activity on a copy of the file, which then is used to replace the file when the reorganization is complete.
  • Limits the numbers and types of dependent logical files that can be attached to a physical file that is being reorganized.
  • The physical file must not have an attached join logical file.
  • The logical file and physical file must exist in the same library.
  • The physical file must not have more than 299 different logical files attached.
  • Requires that if a file has multiple members, the entire file must be reorganized. Reorganizing a single member of a file is not supported.

  • Does not support source file options such as line re-sequencing.

  • Does not support the re-sequencing of the physical file by a key. This includes both physical and logical keys.

  • Should not be run on files configured for keyed replication.  

Both the IBM command RGZPFM and the MIMIX command RGZACTF may leave deleted records in the file. If a record is deleted from an active file while RGZACTF operations are in progress, the record will remain in the file if compression activity already processed the record.
