You don't need to kill them off. Those jobs should always be there to
handle new requests. The jobs do not end when a connection is closed, they
stay active in a wait state to handle the next request. These jobs are
prestart jobs; there will be three or four of them active as soon as the
subsystem is started before any connecitons are made. Each one usually
handles a hundred requests or so before they are eligible to end.
If you kill them all off, three or four new ones will start. The number
that prestart is configurable in the QUSRWRK subsystem. Also the number of
uses and several other parameters.
The jobs don't actually stay there forever, its just that whenever one
ends, a new one (or several more) start up.

Subject: QZDASOINIT / SQL - Stored Procedure Question
I have searched the Midrange-L archives and I realize this topic has been
discussed a lot. I couldn't find a definitive answer. So I thought I
would see if someone can give me a quick & easy answer.
We are on V5R4. Our QZDASOINIT jobs run in QUSRWRK which has it's own
storage pool. My issue is these jobs stay in the system forever (or at
least until our next IPL) or so it seems.
The problem with this is our web folks have some SQL in Stored Procedures
which they run to extract data from the iSeries to build other tables on
the iSeries. Occasionally, when they are testing these, they run them
from WDSC. When they do this it seems to leave things "hung" in one of
the QZDASOINIT jobs. Even if the developer closed his pc down & reboots.
If he tries to rerun the process, it gets an error.
If I go manually end a bunch of the QZDASOINIT jobs, and I have to be
careful here because our website jobs come in through these jobs also,
then they can rerun their process.
I have often thought they are closing things correctly in their SQL
processes but I'm not fluent enough in SQL to know. After reading the
issues with the QZDASOINIT jobs hanging, is it something else?
Is there something I can be doing on the iSeries side to clean these up?
