The Job Watch (JOBWATCH) command allows you to run a job that will monitor jobs on your system and trigger commands set up with the JOBWATCHCF command.

  • End Time - Specify the time you wish JOBWATCH to terminate. If the time specified is less than the current time, JOBWATCH will be run only once. If the value *NONE is specified for the end time, the job will run until it is ended manually.
  • Job Interval - Enter the job interval (in minutes) that you wish JOBWATCH to monitor jobs. If the end time entered is less than the current time, this parameter is ignored.
  • Monitor Subsystem - Enter a list of subsystems to monitor. A special single value of *ALL can be used to monitor all subsystems. A maximum of 20 subsystems can be specified.
  • Job Status - Select the type of jobs that you would like to process. The possible values are: *ACTIVE Process all active jobs. *ALL Process all jobs.
  • Debug Mode - Debug mode will produce a stream file containing debug data.
  • Debug File - The filename to store the debug data in. The default is /tmp/jobwatchdebug.txt.
