All spool files are already being managed. Nothing special about job logs and no extra code. Just aren't being added to the dataq automatically. Job logs are a very tiny portion of the spool files created.

All spool files are purged on whatever timeframe I want.

I understand your point but then there is extra special code just for them.

Subject: RE: Spool Management - QEZJOBLOG

Why create spool files of your joblogs? Wouldn't it be much easier if you stopped spooling them by changing the system value QLOGOUTPUT to *PND? Then you could easily use SQL to copy them to a DB file and purge those a lot easier than managing spool files.

Subject: Spool Management - QEZJOBLOG

CAUTION: This email originated from outside of the organization. Do not click links or open attachments unless you recognize the sender and know the content is safe.


Hi All,

I created a spool file management system that manages all spool files created on the system.
It archives to the IFS, Emails and prints when wanted.

Works great.

I added the environment variable that adds to my DtaQ when a spool file is created.
However, when a job log is created in QEZJOBLOG or QEZDEBUG, it does not add it to my DtaQ.

I would like to eliminate the process where I interrogate the QEZJOBLOG outq and add entries to my DtaQ every few minutes.

What am I missing?
