While not actually a way to reduce the number of joblogs (we use
log(4 00 *seclvl) logclpgm(*YES) for almost all of our production
jobs), it helps if you don't dump -all- of your logs in one output
We have 6 output queues: JOBLOG1MO, JOBLOG2TU, JOBLOG3WE, etc. (one
queue for SAT + SUN). And a set of automated jobs to change the
print files for joblogs, program dumps, and display job to the daily
JOBLOG* output queue.
CHGPRTF QPJOBLOG OUTQ(JOBLOGxx)
CHGPRTF QPPGMDMP OUTQ(JOBLOGxx)
CHGPRTF QPDSPJOB OUTQ(JOBLOGxx)
This places all of the 'utility' output in one place. We save the
output queues as part of our daily backups, then clear the queues
after a few days. This makes the joblogs &c available to track
problems, but they are cleared out so they don't become more clutter.
