Re: job queues



fixed

So you're running production work in QPGMR then? You cannot 'share' job queues between systems. You can attempt to assign a job queue to multiple subsystems but only one will get it (first in wins).

FYI I strongly discourage changing the existing job queue to multi-threaded unless you know the system VERY VERY well. This is a "land mine".

Jim - i am using QPGMR but it's sharing the job q. That's why I didn't even
think about the first time.

And it happened again because it didn't sink in. It's very possible the
vendor package wants it setup this way. I dont understand how the other
outside consultants manage.

Yes I can't make this change on my own. There must be a reason for the
single thread. Let's say I run my jobs in QSPL or even QINTER ( Qinter was
suggested to me by a consultant. For over the weelkend it would be fine).
I think they are still sharing the same que. So you have a situation where
testing is impossible.

Use nomax jobq qsysnomax if you want a job to run immediately without
hanging up users who are submitting to a single threaded jobq.

What do you think of a shop which has only 1 jobs que? SHouldn't there
be a
test system
for a programmer? This has happened twice now. I have a long running
RPG program, working over the weekend, it didn't sink in the first time.
so then its still running and causes some jobs to not run. Consequently
subsystems
did not come up. I don't recall in many years either a system that shuts
down every night and comes back up.
It is frustrating. Am I wrong in thinking that they should have more
than 1
jobq, that is, that other jobs can run at the same time that there
should
be a test system? Is it possible for a newcomer to not make these
mistakes?
I suppose I am to blame that it happened again. BUt I really
have trouble acclimating to this type of environment, and not sure what
can
be done.
