The QSYS2.Services_Info service is an easy way to see all of the available services along with an example of each. It shows both the IBM i Services and the Db2 for i Services, which are the ones specifically related to the database. This service was made available with 7.3 and added to 7.2 via PTF.

Job logs for ended jobs, where the job log is in a spooled file, are easy to search on the green screen. When viewing the spooled job log, you simply enter your search text in the find field and press F16. In addition, you can use F14 to limit the columns in which your search is performed, then press F16 to search.
However, when using the green screen, there is no find field when viewing the job log of an active job. Jobs with pending job logs have a similar problem.

Navigator allows you to edit IFS files with a simple text editor.
Last week I compared the features of the Integrated File System between Navigator for i and Access Client Solutions in Working with the IFS: Access Client Solutions vs Navigator for i. One key difference is with Navigator you can edit files in the IFS, while with ACS you can only view files. I had also previously written about the support to edit files in Navigator with the IFS Enhancements to Navigator for i article. Navigator allows you to edit IFS files with a simple text editor.

You can access the Integrated File System (IFS) using either the Navigator for i web console or Access Client Solutions (ACS). ACS added support to work with the IFS back in October 2016. There are differences between the capabilities; which interface you use will depend upon what you want to accomplish.

Last year, I wrote about Subsystem Management with Navigator for i, which summarized the enhancements that were made to allow you to view and modify your subsystem configurations via the graphical user interface.

On the “green screen” you can see what pool a job is running in with Work with Active Jobs (WRKACTJOB); press F11 one time and you’ll find a column with the pool number. That’s nice, but you need to know the description of the pool that number is associated with.
