There is a job on my system that I have inherited that executes at 3:00 AM. The job varies off all virtual display devices (QPAD*) and then deletes them. If they are needed again, the system will recreate them.

Does anyone else utilize this practice and do you see any benefit to purging virtual display devices rather than just allowing them to accumulate?

We have had a couple recent occasions where the device description was not deleted but the associated message queue was.
