RE: QINTER job queue held


Good point,
We're guilty as charged.

On the other hand, these jobs more similar to inter-active
because they are of "order entry" jobs where a customer
order is copied from one system to another using an interface
created just for this purpose.

As to creating the additional job queue, does not fall
within my area, but I will suggest we do as you have
so as to avoid this in our future.

Why would anyone be concerned about the QINTER job queue being held? Batch jobs shouldn't be submitted to the QINTER job queue.

A long time ago (a different lifetime, almost), I got in some hot water with the data entry manager because I put the QINTER job queue on hold. The data entry people were submitting their print jobs to QINTER because their jobs were far more important than anything else that was happening in the company <sarcasm implied/>.

I resolved the issue by giving the data entry department their own subsystem and job queue's, so they could get their print jobs done quickly without effecting the rest of the company.
