Hi ShivaNag,

You could have posted your query as a new topic instead of continuing with another topic.

Type S;init in the start menu to know the status (provided you have SDSF-Spool Display Search Facility)

For other questions hope you got cleared:-)

To know others persons job status u need to give the following command:
pre *;owner *******.............where ***** means id of the person whose job status u want to see.

And miss anuradha i have SDSF on my mainframe but no such command like s;init exists.Can u clarify.

Hi Sunny,

If you have SDSF just type S in the command prompt,it wil show you all the options it has in SDSF. There is SDSF panel, the following are the options right:

Code:
DA    Active users                      INIT  Initiators     
I     Input queue                         PR    Printers       
O     Output queue                      PUN   Punches         
H     Held output queue                LINE  Lines           
ST    Status of jobs                                         
                                                             
LOG   System log                                             
JC    Job classes                                             
RES   WLM resources                                           
                                                             
END   Exit SDSF           


Here INIT shows all the initiators, like what are all the jobs running currently and on which Job Classes, currently which step it is running etc etc details.......

Hope it is cleared :-)

Hi anuradha,
Thanx for the update but i guess this feature is in newer versions of SDSF b`coz i have only following functions in SDSF:

COMMAND INPUT ===>

DA Active users
I Input queue
O Output queue
H Held output queue
ST Status of jobs

LOG System log

END Exit SDSF

And i forgot to mention that command (pre *;owner *******) should be typed after entering S.ST on the command prompt.Feel sorry for that.

Well many of us are using the older versions of SDSF,right board.

Thanks
sunny
