There is a "console" on the 400 but it is only used for very special
functions, when you are in dedicated mode. Normally this the device

For the most current system info, you should be monitoring QSYSOPR

any message that requires a response will stay until answered. Messages
needing a response will just build up until the que is cleared.

Suggest you get out a copy of System Operations Guide....
