RE: BRMS backup window increasing due to QUSRSYS/QEZJOBLOG



fixed

1) Do you have one outq in your SPFILARC library, or do you mirror all the outqs?
2) Are you only saving spoolfiles from SPFILARC library, not from any other library?
3) After you clear the spoolfiles in SPFILARC, at this point you have 0 spoolfiles on your system, correct?

Interesting concept, you have spoolfiles saved if you need them, also keeps the number of jobs and spoolfiles low, which is great for IPLs, amongst other things.

How often are you restoring spoolfiles and/or qezjoblogs, if and when needed?

automated...
we found (or mod'ed) a process like the MOVSPLF command in TAATOOL, that selects by age...

How do you move the spoolfiles, manually or with an automated process.
Forgot to mention, IBM support stated that spoolfile incremental save is in the works, no date set as of yet.
Currently spoolfile save is all or none.

Paul,
we too save spool files...
what we have done is create a "SPLFILARC" library, and after x days (usually 1) the spool files move to that library...
we only save that library on Sunday, and then clear the output queues in it.

Over the last several months, our BRMS changed object on R&D LPAR has increased significantly.
A backup list which includes all libraries with outqs saves the outq and spoolfile data.
QUSRSYS/QEZJOBLOG of 200,000 is taking 1 hour 40 minutes.
Does anyone else save spoolfiles, if so how, how many, and how long.

Thank You
