Reply with quote

Hello,

In my working environment, ca view stores the completed job instances as old as upto 1 year. Not beyond that. I have a job that runs every quarter, that means it stores information of 4 instances only.

Is there a way to go beyond 1 year? Ex, if I need to see the job runs that were completed last year January, is there a way?

I contacted MVS admins in my office, but they told they are not sure if there is a way to do it. They said what ever is there in ca view (1 year), thats it.

Just wanted to be sure on that.

Hello,
The retention period of a job is set on the ERO table of CA-VIEW. ERO table can be found from the SAR started task.

The parameter is RETPD=
Guess that they set it to RETPD=365 at your place.

The good news is that your systems programmers can set specific retention periods for specific jobs by adding a records into the ERO table for that particular job.

Ask your MVS support to check for ERO table entries.

Hope it helps,

Thanks for your reply Vasanth.

ok, this is for going forward. Right? I mean if they set retpd=730, going forward jobs will be there in ca view for 2 years.

But is there a way to see the old jobs that were already run prior to oct 2013 ( an year from now).
