Can you please identify some of the messages "you don't care about" that were found in the job log? There are options related to what happens when the joblog area is "full." It can be wrapped, or the job may be ended, or it may be printed and wrapped (see the JOBMSGQMX and JOBMSGQFL options of SBMJOB). It might be possible to eliminate some of those messages "you don't care about," though, so I'd like to know more about that. If you think about it, what you're saying is that all of this may be "stuff" that you don't care about, so it is a matter of definition (yours versus the system) what falls into that category.

List, Another ILE/COBOL newbie question. I was running a test program where I was issuing a lot of DISPLAY UPON SYSOUT messages for debug purposes. The job was cancelled by the system because "the size of the message queue for job xxx reached the maximum size". I see from the output that in addition to the lines I was interested in seeing there were lots of system-generated stuff that I did not care about. In the mainframe world, we are used to using a lot of DISPLAY UPON SYSLST (if need be) and they just get routed to a different spooled entry which is separate from any of the other reports the program may generate. It's readily accessible if you happen to need it to verify a problem and easily discarded if you don't. So, in the iSeries world, what is the "acceptable" way to create printed output for debug and tracking purposes? Coding a DISPLAY UPON SYSOUT is, of course, easier than defining and writing to a print file, but it's not a big deal if that is what must be done. Your suggestions please?
