I think that depends upon your system auditors.

I've worked at companies where no one should be using QPADEV* devices as all
access should have a name that matches a location/department to help pin
down issues.
I've also worked at companies where no one cared.

Subject: Deletion of Virtual Display Devices

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.
