Re: Multiple joblogs being created for some jobs



fixed

what is the job logging level set at? It is possible you are set for
*NOLIST so the system would not print out the messages but the job log is
still being filled up. I would run the report with 4/00/*seclvl and see
what the messages are that accumulating in the job log. My bet is someone
made a programing change to do something like delete a file or something
and if the file doesn't exist it puts out a messages. Anyway, something is
filling the job log and my bet it is the same thing again and again.

If the job message queue only wrapped 2 times, there should only be 3
joblogs.

Also, the size of each joblog, 584k, is not near the maximum size.

Normally, only one joblog is created for a job.
Some jobs have multiple joblogs being created.
<<SNIP>>
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.


FWiW, regarding the noted effect from *PRTWRAP setting for Job Message
Queue Full Action (JOBMSGQFL) having exceeded the Job Message Queue Maximum
Size (JOBMSGQMX):

<
http://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/api/content/ssw_ibm_i_71/apis/QMHCTLJL.htm

_Control Job Log Output (QMHCTLJL) API_
"...
The Control Job Log Output (QMHCTLJL) API controls the production of a job
log when the related job ends or when the job message queue becomes full
and the print-wrap option is in effect for the job. The API can only
influence the job log for the job in which it is used. The API can be used
to control:

* The destination of the job log.
* The amount of message information written to the job log.
* The occurrence of messages in the job log.

To have an effect on the job log, the API must be called before the job
ends. It can be called in an initial program for the job.

This API does not produce a job log; rather, the API captures the control
information specified on the parameters and retains the information until
job log production. The API also prepares the output files for job log
production. When job log production occurs, such as at end of job, the
control information and the prepared output files direct the job log to the
output file.

If the API is not used, normal job log production occurs. That is, all
messages in the job message queue for the job are written to a spooled file
from which the job log can be printed. If the API is used, no spooled file
is produced. Instead, the messages are written into one or two output
files, depending upon the amount of information requested.
Once the API is used, the options selected remain in effect for the
current job until the API is called again. Each time the API is used, the
selected options can be changed. The options in effect when the job ends or
when the job message queue becomes full are the ones used to produce the
job log.
..."

Given the data is in a file, a summary query grouping on the MsgId and
counting the occurrences per message identifier is helpful to determine
which messages are pervasive and review if those might best be eliminated;
i.e. review of ~150 spooled joblogs is not nearly so simple as a COUNT
aggregate in an SQL GROUP BY query, optionally with a HAVING clause and\or
ORDER to limit the results to just the most common messages.
