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.
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.
