Instead of having *ENDJOB for the Inactive job message queue system
value, QINACTMSGQ, you could create a message queue called say, INACTIVE,
and have a perpetually running job which monitors the queue for messages in
the queue with an ID of CPI1126.  The message data in the message will
contain the job name, user and number.  Since interactive jobs usually have
the device name as the job name, you could have your program end jobs which
are not from the devices you want and leave the jobs from devices you like
alone.

Subject: Inactivity Timer


I have some devices (3197, model C2, *VRT) that I want to have maintain
an active session. The problem is that the System Value QINACTITV is set
to a specific value (120 minutes), so when these devices have gone for 2
hours without activity, they are recycled,  the current job on them is
ended and a new session is started.

So...can anyone think of some creative ways of keeping these devices
active, without changing the system value?
