Expand the temporary storage metrics in the QAPMSYSTEM file to track each global bucket
The QAPMSYSTEM file in Collection Services has information about system-wide use of temporary storage - but this is grouped into database, non-database, active jobs, and ended jobs.
It would be extremely helpful to expand this temporary storage tracking to have fields for each global bucket.
I am having a temporary storage issue related to non-DB consumption of temporary storage. The QSYS2.SYSTMPSTG buckets can show me which bucket is the largest at a snapshot in time, but I need to see this information on an ongoing time-interval basis to identify and resolve the issue.
While my use-case is related to non-DB temporary storage, all global buckets should be tracked by Collection Services.
