Hi,

How to find whether a program is obsolete or not in Production? I mean, whether that program is currently in use or not.


Thanks,
JP

Hi Jyothi,

I hope you can find out the job name. Then check when that job is last run in VIEW details.

Thanks,
Anu

You might go talk to your Production Control folks.

Hi,

What I would suggest you to do is:
1. First check in the Scheduler (Zeke or Jobtrac) for the Job name. If found, then it is in use regularly.
Sometimes, we decommission the Load module of the program and maintain the Job in Production JCL Library. This is helpful in loading the job onto Jobtrac and modifying it a little to suit other requirements (Ex. Taking Unload of Prod. Tables) on 'On Request' basis.

2. That particular job may be running some program (Let's assume). In such a case, Check in the Production Load Library (By Default 'OPERn.PRODBTCH.LOADLIBx', where n and x are numerals.

3. Why to take risk, Contact the Production support guys!!!!

P.S. If it hasn't been run between the date of my post and Sumanth's it's probably obsolete. icon_smile.gif
