Actually, we run our interactive jobs at a priority of 10, and we run
our Batch jobs at a priority of 60.

I actually thought that one time, and on a Saturday, with only 3 people
in the company the system was slow, because someone was running
an accounting batch job.  Deciding I wanted to get it out of the way
quickly I changed it to a priority of 1.

What I found is, never change a job to priority of 1 unless you are
running at a priority of 1!  Everyone's interactive job locked up until
the batch job finished 40 minutes later.  No one could even log into
the system

Regards,

Jim Langston
