Check out the system value: QDEVRCYACN

It can be set to *ENDJOBNOLIST or *ENDJOB in which case when a 
device I/O problem occurs, the job is ended with out or with a 
job log.  The shipped value is *DSCMSG which does a disconnects 
the job.

The best thing of course would be to take out the MONMSG CPF0000 
or global error trap from the programs.  Or to at least handle 
the message and kill the job.  I prefer to not put the global 
monitors in to begin with and only monitor for conditions that I 
am prepared to handle.  However, if you have an existing system 
that does this global monitoring (which you do, otherwise you 
wouldn't have the problem), it can be difficult to remove it 
from everyplace and you should just change the system value.

Subject:        Give it an X, closing the emulator window.

We have a situation where a small group of users are closing
the emulation window (Netsoft) when they are in a program,
such as Order Inquiry.  This causes their 400 job to increase
it's usage of the CPU until we notice that the system slows
down.  We check, find this job running wild and we then end
the job.

Is there any way for the system to recognize this and end
the job?

The messages we get in the job log are:

    Session stopped by a request from device QPADEV0001.
    Input or Output request failed.  See message CPF5140.
    Request to device ZU failed.

Thanks in advance,
Marc Zylka ( mzylka@netpath.net )
