WRKACTJOB – Work with Active Jobs

The Work with Active Jobs – WRKACTJOB command allows to work with status information and performance for the active jobs in the system. The sequence of jobs can be changed with the Sequence (SEQ) parameter or through operations on the display. Other parameters allow the selection of jobs to be shown on the display. The selection parameters can also be changed by operations on the display.

Examples

Example 1: Resetting Active Job Statistics

WRKACTJOB   RESET(*YES)  CPUPCTLMT(2)

This command allows the user to work with a display with no jobs appearing; the active job statistics are reset and no job has used any processing unit time since the reset point. When the display appears, the F5 key may be pressed; this causes a display of all jobs that have exceeded 2 percent of the processing unit utilization since the reset point.

Example 2: Working With Jobs in a Subsystem

WRKACTJOB   SBS(QINTER)  SEQ(*INT)

This command allows the user to work with all jobs in the QINTER subsystem. The sequence of the jobs is by the number of operator interactions, with the job with the most interactions appearing first.
