Re: QINTER job queue held



fixed

Gary,

     You are absolutely correct.  I thought that you would see it in the log, but alas, it isn't listed.  I also took a quick look at QSYSOPR messages and don't see reference made to me holding the queue there either..........
 
Warmest Regards,
Richard Reeve

see where job queue QINTER was held
or released.

You can try DSPLOG to print then search on 'held' or 'HELD'.

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.
