early progress display on SAV big objects from IFS
When saving large objects from IFS (e.g. image catalogs) to save file or tape device, the progress messages (number of objects or size) will be shown after the first 500 objects. If the save operation only contains 100 (big) objects, the progress message is shown when the operation is finished. Until then, system may be busy for minutes without any information to the operator.
save operations need long time without any status update. Operators do not know if there is any progress and how many objects (out of total number of objects) are finished yet.
