Re: WRKACTJOB Discrepancies



fixed

The same is true about WRKDSKSTS... F10 to restart the averaging.

best regards,

Roberto

Use F10 instead of F5. F5 may be running stats over a very long period of time. As per the behavior I've seen, stats start accumulating when you start WRKACTJOB, any F5 CPU percents are averages over that entire period of time until you hit F10 to refresh.

Subject: WRKACTJOB Discrepancies

V5R1 iSeries. Don't ask why ('cause I don't know), but I ran WRKACTJOB on two different sessions, under the same profile (mine). The CPU % on one session shows 24.3, but on the other session it shows 6.9.

I have refreshed (F5) several times on both sessions and the wide variance still shows up (though, of course, the numbers change slightly). The WRKACTJOB for session D3 registers as .00, even after several refreshes, for the WRKACTJOB run from session D2.

I signed off of both sessions and logged in again. Now the difference is minute.

What am I *not* understanding here? I have usually relied upon the WRKACTJOB command to let me know who or what is impeding progress on the system and used F5 to refresh the display.

Thanks.
