A Better Q MOUNT?

I was playing around with my QDRV script which I feel gives a better showing than Q DRIVE and realized that I could technically produce a better Q MOUNT display than the built in TSM command provides. FYI - Unlike the Q MOUNT command my QMNT script shows the device definition for the current DRIVE_OWNER, so a storage agent or library client.  I have provided both my scripts for you, let me know what you think. Suggestions are welcome.

QDRV Script

select cast((library_name)as char(15)) as LIBRARY_NAME, -
cast((DRIVE_NAME)as char(16)) as DRIVE_NAME, -
cast((drive_state)as char(10)) as DRIVE_STATE, -
cast((volume_name)as char(8)) as VOL_NAME, cast((online)as char(10)) as ONLINE, -
cast((ALLOCATED_TO)as char(20)) as DRV_OWNER from drives order by library_name, drive_name







QDRV Macro

DEFINE SCRIPT  QDRV DESC="Show tape drive status"
UPDATE SCRIPT  QDRV "select cast((library_name)as char(15)) as LIBRARY_NAME, -"
UPDATE SCRIPT  QDRV "cast((DRIVE_NAME)as char(16)) as DRIVE_NAME, -"
UPDATE SCRIPT  QDRV "cast((drive_state)as char(10)) as DRIVE_STATE, -"
UPDATE SCRIPT  QDRV "cast((volume_name)as char(8)) as VOL_NAME, cast((online)as char(10)) as ONLINE, -"
UPDATE SCRIPT  QDRV "cast((ALLOCATED_TO)as char(20)) as DRV_OWNER from drives order by library_name, drive_name"





QMNT Script

select varchar(a.library_name,15) as LIB_NAME, -
cast((a.DRIVE_NAME)as char(16)) as DRIVE_NAME, -
cast((a.drive_state)as char(10)) as DRIVE_STATE, -
cast((a.volume_name)as char(8)) as VOL_NAME, -
varchar(b.device,12) as device, cast((a.online)as char(10)) as ONLINE, -
cast((a.ALLOCATED_TO)as char(20)) as DRV_OWNER from drives a, paths b -
where a.library_name=b.library_name and a.drive_name=b.destination_name -
and b.source_name=a.ALLOCATED_TO order by a.drive_name
