You could also send the joblogs you need to keep to another user, or move
them to another OutQ.  Cleanup will only delete the joblogs that are in

subject: keeping/cleaning joblogs 

We use the automatic cleanup option (go cleanup) to clear out job logs over
seven days old.

We have a situation where we need to keep one users job logs for thirty
What is the best plan for this?

1.  Change system retention days of job logs from 7 to 30 days.  This will
job logs for 30 days for all jobs across the system.  Impact will be disk

2.  Using our SAVOUTQ software, save the joblogs for user BCI7 on tape using
TAP01 every day before cleanup runs.  If programmer needs a joblog we can
restore it from this tape.  This tape will not go off site.

3.  Develop a software to monitor BCI7 joblogs and copy them to a physical
before cleanup each night.
