Re: How to identify a runaway job



fixed

Hi Denis,

I'll start this by stating I'm still new to these systems, but I do try to help where I can.

Have you taken a look at the output of WRKSYSACT yet? It may be painful to watch for a while if you turn on automatic refresh, but it looks like the output may give you what you are looking for.

Hope this helps,

Hello all,

We are currently facing a major problem. There is, on one of our systems, 1 or more job that is consuming disk at an alarming rate (the % used goes up 1 percent every 5 minutes or so). We have thousands of jobs running and we can not easily pin point the guilty one.

In the past, we got lucky some times (a badly defined SQL that we were able to spot), and unlucky some others (IPL when the % got to high).

Does anyone can give me hints on how to spot, on the fly, the disk consumption of a job, be that for Database IO or temporary memory space.

Thanks in advance
