I need help identifying lookbacks in the CA-7 request queue. Is there a way to tell what time a job came into the request queue. icon_question.gif

Hi,

Your question is not very clear to me, but I can think of two ways however, though not sure you were looking for these or not..

1. In my shop they use JHS (MSGCLASS=J), it's like SPOOL only (S.ST) with some additional feactures. It gives you such detais scuh as start time, end time of JOB. Usually they use

2. Go to JOBTRAC, enter the JOB name you wish to look for on the command prompt, that woould show the occurences of that JOB in schedulers. Put 'S' in front of that JOB & here ya go with all the information such as time of run, predecessor, successor and some more.

Hope this helps..

..such third party tools to aid schedulers, you might be having one, check with your peers once. Sigh, now it's becoming a site related question..



P.S.: Just completed my incomplete sentence above from my previous post..sigh..Some times your fingers work much faster than your mind..& they press enter before You could control them via subconscious mind & still they say mind is the fastest...huh..?

Let me clarify what a look back issue is; A look back issue is when a job is setting in the CA-7 request queue waiting on a pre-req (job requirement). And the pre-req already completed. You see when a job comes into the request queue CA-7 checks to see if the pre-reqs have completed. CA-7 only looks back X number of hours. For example: JobA comes into the que at 01:00 with a pre-req of JobB. CA-7 looks back 5 hours to see if JobB completed. The problem is JobB completed 6 hours ago. So JobA will set in the request queue waiting for the JobB pre-req to be satisfied.
