First, we're on V5R1. So this may be (oh, heck, IS) an issue.
Every night I save a copy of our data library to a test library,
which I can use for testing (no partitions). The test library is
then saved to a save file. I can restore the test library from
the save file, if my tests, well, screw up.
I don't often have to restore it in the middle of the day, but it
does happen. In fact, today I've done it twice (bad day).
Obviously things go a little slow (to put it mildly) during the
restore. But even after my command returns to the menu, there are
still jobs running that are building indices. WRKACTJOB shows:
Subsystem/Job User Type CPU % Function Status
QDBSRV05 QSYS SYS 46.8 IDX-A.HISLA1 RUN
QDBSRV04 QSYS SYS 43.3 IDX-D.LYMDRL01 RUN
The restore is done by, first, clearing the library. Then doing a
RSTOBJ to the test library. Is there a better, quicker way to do
this? I never noticed this before (i.e., on other systems on
which I have worked using the same technique), but I would have
thought (erroneously it seems) that the indices would have simply
been restored from the save file, instead of under-going a
complete rebuild. The LFs are in the save file. The disks are
