That's one reason why applications should have proper error handling.  The 
standard error handler can change 
the logging level (CHGJOB LOG(4 00 *SECLVL) ) when an unrecoverable error 
occurs.  Of course that doesn't 
help with 90% of the applications out there which don't gracefully handle 
errors (but you all know my opinion 
on that!).

My preference has always been to have full logging running for every job and 
size the machine accordingly.  I 
have lost count of the number of times a user has come complaining about some 
job days after it was run.  
Without the joblog around it can be very difficult to diagnose the problem.

Regards,
Simon Coulter.
