All jobs set as below, system defaults.

Job message queue maximum size . . . . . . . . . : 64
Job message queue full action . . . . . . . . . . : *PRTWRAP

It must something in the job?
How would I find that?

Hi Paul

There are system values for what happens when the job message queue gets full -


The first is the max size in MB, the second is the action when full. One action is *PRTWRAP - it'll print a job log, then continue from there.

These are also in JOBDs and SBMJOB.

Now it could also be that the program is printing job logs at certain points.

Normally, only one joblog is created for a job.
Some jobs have multiple joblogs being created.
Is there a system, profile, job, etc setting that would cause this?
In one instance 159 joblogs were created for a single batch job, each about 80 pages, or 584k.
The final joblog is 5,164 pages, 32,792k.

Thank You
