For the information you need, you will have to work with your friendly Systems Programmer. Two possible ways:

1) Implement SMF Job/Step termination exit IEFACTRT - this will at Job runtime give you Batch Job/Step termination statistics including CPU, TCB, SRB time etc..

2) Extract SMF records and produce required reports (you will have to work with SAS/MXG - lot of work to do this).

To catch the scheduled batch job start time and end time,you can use either CA-7 or Control-D option(online monitoring)

i agree with shanu,
you directly see in spool. JES system generated message contains the start time of the job and end time of the job.
Output will have this header
Code:
 JES2  JOB LOG  --  SYSTEM <TSO COMPLEX >


Where TSO complex is envioronment where job is running.
Let us know if you have any other qury
Correct me if i am wrong.

You can find the information as in the following format in theJESMSGLG in Spool, if you are authorized to view spool.

     JESYSMSG JES2                 4 MTPLC01  H LOCAL                   61     



Code:

hi shanu,
the main motive behind giving screen shots is it wil help the persone who has the query in more better way. If you can explain the answer clearly and precisly with ur words only, i don't think screen shot is needed.
It's givem because picture are equivalent to 1000 words. Hope this will clarify ur doubts.
Any comment are welcome.

Hi All,

You mis-understand my question.

I know we can get the job start time and end time from
spool JEMSGLG.

but I want to know how to get the time info automatically,

such as read a file that reord the time info.

we need get the elapse time to do some performance tuning

STARTED - TIME=17.45.01
STEPNAME PROCSTEP PROGRAM CPU-TIME COND
CA07RMS U11STEP U11RMS 00:00:00.01 0000
STM002DS R000 IEFBR14 00:00:00.00 0000
STM002DS R010 SORT 00:00:00.07 0000
STM002DS R020 STM8222A 00:00:00.02 0000
STM002DS R030 EZTPA00 00:00:00.08 0000

acc to my knowledge.

Start time is the mainframe time when the execution started
End time is when it terminated

CPU time is the total CPU time consumed by the job in the mean time (lot of jobs will be recieving CPU time paralally)

To find out the elapsed time (ie the total time spent in processing of the job including the DB & file activities), it can also be found from held spool listing (s;h) . It looks something like
JOBNAME TE ESYS ST TIME ST DATE END TIME END DATE
TCCISP01 332 TDS1 21:06:39 2006.332 21:33:03 2006.332
TCCISP01 332 TDS1 22:21:56 2006.332 22:44:08 2006.332
LPCIBP01 332 TDS1 23:12:48 2006.332 23:13:14 2006.332
We use the same to check for performance of our programs as its very tedious to go and open each Job.
