Thread: With job in Job Log Pending state, can job enter restricted state?

  1. With job in Job Log Pending state, can job enter restricted state?

    If a job is waiting for a job log go complete spooling, I have seen the
    state posted as Pending (Job Log Pending). With a job in this state,
    can the system enter restricted state, issuing ENDSBS *ALL, even though
    the job is technically not ended.

    Issue the command again and use the parms below.

    ENDSBS OPTION(*IMMED) DELAY(60)

    The only time I have seen jobs in JOBLOG PENDING status is when they
    were ended using the ENDJOBABN (End Job Abnormal) command. As far as I
    know, the jobs will remain on the system in this state until the next
    IPL.

    If your system is at V5R4 then it may be normal to have jobs in the job
    log pending state. Search the V5R4 Information center for WRKJOBLOG to
    find more information. Here are the first two paragraphs from the first
    topic:

    Job log pending
    The job log pending state has been available for many years. When a
    job's job log attribute is *PND, no job log is produced. With the
    release of V5R4 enhancements have been made to both iSeries™
    Navigator and the character-based interface so that you can now control
    how and under what circumstances the job log for a specific job will be
    produced.

    This new feature is useful when you place the system into a restricted
    state. When the system goes into a restricted state, subsystems end and
    a potential of thousands of jobs can end at once. This in turn can
    create a large burden on the output resources. By preventing the
    production of these job logs, you can significantly reduce the impact
    on these resources.

    I hope this helps.
