I'm confused by the phrase ""after we have gone thru all 8 journals"".

Do you mean after normal activity has kicked off 8 offloads? If so, the
pattern here would be ""normal""; if when j2jrnl and j3jrnl were offloaded
there were long-running run-units active at the time of the offload,
causing a bunch of BFOR images to be left in the prior segment(s).
These should go away with the next offload/compress.

Have you gone through successive offloads (of the same journal) and the
stuff is still there?

wondering what can be done to find out what is there...

Any suggestions are welcome.....

Re: Journal question
"I agree with Don, I see this all the time on some of my production CV's
that have high LORBN's till the next time it is offloaded. If it has
been offloaded again since, then yes you would have a problem.
