Re: running batch jobs from QINTER


Never a good idea to run batch jobs in QINTER - the characteristics of the *INTER machine pool are that the jobs get a lot more priority than they should for batch work.

Instead, use JOBQ QUSRNOMAX - there is no limit to the jobs that can be run through there - and it's on the system for this exact purpose.

And hardly anyone else would know about it!!

I would make it in a loop to run every few minutes. until I complete the
view that would negate the need for this run.

I would have it close itself every night and a scheduled job kick it off in
the morning.

The reason I dont want to put this in batch is because, the batch queues
are single threaded so you can't hold up the others. and there are jobs
that need to run before the daily IPL - if they dont the machine won't come
up. So am very afridai to mess around there.
