Job queue (JOBQ)

Specifies that all job queues are to be displayed, or specifies the job queue whose status is to be displayed.

If *ALL is specified, no value can be specified for a library name because *ALL provides a list of all job queues in every library on the system.

When a generic job queue name is specified and qualified with a library name, the overall status of all the job queues that match the generic name is shown even if there is only one job queue that matches the generic name.

When *ALL is specified for the library, the overall status of the job queues is shown even if only one job queue is found.
