Thanks Rob.

I shouldn't have posted. Looks like a program was in a loop.
Consultant demanded specific code be added to a program. I did.
Apparently made the dumb mistake of counting on them to do what they
said. Bad data is likely the problem - usually is. With consultants,
the rule should always be "Trust, but Verify".

Index rebuild?
If the call stack points to a vendor supplied program (IQ) then call them.
But watch the call stack and see if it's changing.  Check the job log to
ensure that no one held this running job.

When I got to work this morning, a job queue had 20 jobs waiting.
There was one job running, sort of, in the subsystem assigned to that
job queue.  I say "sort of" because it wasn't doing anything.  Open
files, but no I/O.

I looked for unanswered messages on QSYSOPR.  Nothing.

The job was running (again, sort of) multiple IQ queries to prepare a
data file for an RPG program.  Just stopped doing things.

I wish I had had the time to look at it further before ending it.

Does anything make sense?
