While I was at the Power Systems Technical University in London a couple of weeks ago, a conference attendee in my work management presentation asked me this question: “How do I make WRKJOB, option 14 (display open files), display the I/O information rather than the activation group information? I always have to press F11 to see the I/O details.”
I’d like to thank Mike Russell, software engineer at IBM, for writing this blog article.
In the 7.3 release, IBM added a new parameter to the End Job Abnormal (ENDJOBABN) command.
I wrote about workload groups some time ago in “i Can … Manage Workloads Better with IBM i 7.1”. The information in that older article is still accurate, and I’m not going to repeat a lot of what I wrote there. If you have not yet used workload groups, you may want to read the older blog for additional information on why workload groups are useful.
This week, I’m going to share a super-secret enhancement in the 7.3 release. The Display Job Log (DSPJOBLOG) command was enhanced with two new parameters: MSGF and DUPJOBOPT.
I initially wrote about the SET_SERVER_SBS_ROUTING procedure in this post, Route DB2 Requests to a Specific Subsystem, and then again in this post, Route Remote Command Requests to a Specific Subsystem. I’m back again with another post to tell you about more enhancements to this IBM i Service.(more…)
I’m sure most of you know how you can use Qshell to get a Unix -like interactive environment. You start an interactive Qshell session by using the Start QSH (STRQSH) or QSH command with *NONE for the CMD parameter.(more…)
