Collection Services collector was designed to run forever. You are not supposed to configure it to run for so many hours and then shut down. You configure it to cycle every so many hours - which means closing current *MGTCOL object and creating a new one. If you chose "Create database files during collection" it will submit a background job (CRTPFRDTA), which will create performance database members. Collector takes care of old *MGTCOL objects (you can confgire expiration time and they will be purged when expired). It will not cleanup performance database members automatically. PM/400 will do it for you if you choose to use it. Suggested use (I think it is a default when shipped) is to run collector round o'clock with 15 min interval, cycle at midnight and do not create database files automatically. Do not be afraid that it will be a performance hog - collector overhead in default configuration is fraction of a single percent even on very large and heavily loaded systems. If you think you've had a performance problems, you can always create database members for analysis (using CRTPFRDTA command) for a time you are interested in. Provided, of course, you have reasonable expiration interval and *MGTCOL is still there. Another suggested use is to configure PM/400. It will take care of everything - collector, database files and will give you some reports in addition.

The scheduled job launched fine and pretty much did what I expected. However, I set it to run for 12 hours and when I got into the office this morning, I found that it had not ended, it collected data all night. The other strange event is that it is starting a new member every 4 hours instead of the one member we were used to seeing at V4R5. From the menu PERFORM, Option 7, I see 3 members instead of one for a days collection......... Has anyone else experienced this? If so, how did you resolve the issues?
