How about adding an MPLUS job monitor looking for jobs on hold?

Or one that looks for certain jobs to be completed at a certain time every day?

Evans,

On our R&D system, we had a tape issue, which caused the jobs to stack
up in BRMS jobq.
Tape issue was resolved.
BRMS jobs all ran, except for the save, (which was previously put on)
Nightly save on the LPAR didn't run for five days, because of the held
job. (operator had a senior moment)

AJS calendars and scheduling are actually very flexible. Also, it's
quite simple to run a job every 5 minutes, we have several.
Now the base job scheduler is a different story. There you had to
create duplicate jobs with the same call with a different schedule.

Did you know, that if a job submitted from AJS, is put on hold in
the jobq before it becomes active, AJS will not submit any future
jobs for this job.

That's interesting. I don't think I've run into this before. Thank you.

I must admit that I too think this is probably the Right Thing. A
user-settable option might be nice -- a per-job user-settable option
even better -- but in general I think the assumption is that a given
job will perform the same processing no matter when it is submitted;
and therefore if you've held one instance of the job, there would be
no reason you would want another instance jumping in.

So, actually I would be curious about what the specifics of your case are.
Is there logic in the program called that does different things
depending on when it is run? Or does the job depend on its own output
from a previous run? -- something like that?

Unfortunately, we have some things set up like that where I work (set
up that way before my time, mind) but fortunately we don't have many
jobs scheduled to run more than once a day, so this hasn't come up.
In a few cases we have created duplicate jobs with the same call but a
different schedule
(FOOJOB1 and FOOJOB2, for example). We've done that not because of
the issue you reported, but just because AJS's calendar is so
inflexible. (And it would get out of hand quickly if you wanted to
run the job every five
minutes.)
