Jamie, You're describing the default behavior of OS/400 work management when an interactive job exceeds its time slice. The time slice for the QINTER class is 2 seconds. When this time is exceeded, the system can move the job into the memory pool defined in system value QTSEPOOL (timeslice-end pool). The default value IIRC is *base. I'm not sure that I would count on this to have much effect, particularly with an index-build, which never seems to play well with others.
