These are various server SHow commands I’ve picked up from various sources. This is definitely not an exhaustive list, and these commands are added and dropped from TSM based on the version, these commands are not supported and may not work for you.
If you have a client session or process stuck, it may be waiting for a drive. You can use this command to see if there are sessions queued waiting for mount points.
If you are having problems with sessions or processes queued, or waiting for tape volumes, then this command will display the in-memory list of assigned volumes.
This is one of the long running commands that produce lots of output. It actually issues a set of QUERY and SHOW commands then uses these to build a quite comprehensive picture of the state of the server. This command is worth running as a diagnostic data gathering exercise, to be analysed when free time permits.
Shows client schedule variables and statistics.
Shows Deduplication thread information and current worker thread chunk statistics.
Shows information and statistics on Deduplication threads.

This command will report the memory used by the server in megabytes, recorded at hourly intervals for the last 50 hours (this is a constant in the server code and is not user-configurable). The reported usage represents the amount of memory internal server routines request from the pseudo-kernel memory routines. It does NOT represent the total amount of memory the server is using. Nevertheless, it is still useful in determining the server’s memory usage trend.
Useful for determining which volume is in-use by a given mount point and other attributes for the assigned mount points.
Shows pending administrative and client schedules.
Displays the resource queue. The resource queue is used to monitor common resources on the server. Typically, this is useful for displaying information about transactions, locks, and other resources used by a storage agent on the database server that it is configured to use.
This command displays the current state of the specified library’s slot information.
SHow SLOTS libraryName
Displays information storage pools.
Shows information about sessions using volumes in storagepools.
