Thread: Job run listing does not show some line numbers

  1. Job run listing does not show some line numbers

    Hi all,

    We observed a strange problem over the weekend. Our production jobs run
    and produce output file as usual in OUT.HPSPOOL. From there, its picked
    up by CONMAN and then eventually moved to STATN. The original copy from
    OUT.HPSPOOL is purged and the history of last 50 jobs runs are
    maintained in the STATN records.

    We have a job that runs daily. The job as such completed successfully
    fine and does not show any abend or aborts. The job executes Suprtool
    step. It's a fairly simple step and has been running fine all these
    years. The job run listing shows perfectly fine on Friday nights run,
    but is missing some line numbers in the Thursday nights run. The line
    numbers on the job run listing 417, 433 and 453-454 appear fine on the
    Friday's run. These lines are basically the output count from the
    Suprtool and Suprlink statements.

    But these similar output on Thursday's job run is missing these line
    numbers. Basically, the line numbers 417 and 433 are missing and we are
    not able to determine the outfile file records counts from those steps.

    Has anyone else noticted this strange behaviour before ? Is this a STATN
    or a SUPRTOOL, SUPRLINK issue ? OR is it time to change my glasses ?

  2. Re: Job run listing does not show some line numbers

    Thanks once again.

    We were able to issue a "SET FCTL" command inside STATN and then Text
    and view the entire STDLIST appropriately with all the Suprtool and
    Suprlink output record counts.

    To roll this back, we just had to issue a "SET NOFCTL" command. This
    command has to be executed because the "SET FCTL" command is a permanent
    one, irrespective of whether you exit out of STATN or logout of your
    session.


    With Best Regards

    Raghu Rao

    Dear Raghu,

    An educated guess would be in how the spool file is moved and/or being
    listed. What happens if you
    list with Display functions on? A guess would be that CCTL was munged in
    one of the moves/copies.

    I am not sure that I understand how the output files/stdlists are
    processed and who or what is looking
    at them, but that is where I would start to look. The first step is to
    list them with display functions, you
    may see that the lines are there but with an extra or odd escape
    sequence.

    Sincerely,


    Neil Armstrong

    Hi all,

    We observed a strange problem over the weekend. Our production
    jobs run and produce output file as usual in OUT.HPSPOOL. From there,
    its picked up by CONMAN and then eventually moved to STATN. The original
    copy from OUT.HPSPOOL is purged and the history of last 50 jobs runs are
    maintained in the STATN records.

    We have a job that runs daily. The job as such completed
    successfully fine and does not show any abend or aborts. The job
    executes Suprtool step. It's a fairly simple step and has been running
    fine all these years. The job run listing shows perfectly fine on Friday
    nights run, but is missing some line numbers in the Thursday nights run.
    The line numbers on the job run listing 417, 433 and 453-454 appear fine
    on the Friday's run. These lines are basically the output count from the
    Suprtool and Suprlink statements.
