I hate to say it but this is much less sinister than that. WRKACTJOB shows details for what it works with - for jobs. But not everything that runs on system is a job. There are lots of SLIC tasks - save/restore, asynchronous pagein/pageout, TCP/IP router, database SMP support, performance statistics collection - to name just a few. All these consume CPU - sometimes quite a lot. But these are not jobs, so WRKACTJOB does *not* show them in details section. But they *are* included in WRKACTJOB header, which is system totals. Bottom line - CFINT or not, you are about to see this effect every now and then. WRKSYSACT is indeed a way to see all things which use CPU on system - it is not limited to jobs. You can also look at performance data collected by Performance Monitor and/or Collection Services (it depends on release). This data will also include SLIC tasks as well as jobs.

CFINT is a "governor" that prevents you from using more interactive "features" than you have paid for. See VERY many previous posts on that. _______________________________________________ This is the Midrange Systems Technical Discussion (MIDRANGE-L) mailing list To post a message email: MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/cgi-bin/listinfo/midrange-l or email: MIDRANGE-Lfirstname.lastname@example.org Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/midrange-l.
