Problem Statement:

QSQSRVR jobs that have ended has a status of: 'JOBLOG PENDING'.

Details:

  • Using command: WRKJOB QSQSRVR, the number of QSQSRVR jobs seems to multiply over time with a status of 'JOBLOG PENDING'.
  • Issue started happening after upgrading to V5R4.
  • Many of the QSQSRVR jobs are created by ShowCase users or QUSER.
  • An IPL seems to temporarily clear some or all of the QSQSRVR jobs.

Solution:

Modify the Job Description to generate job logs when the jobs end. This works for any job with status 'JOBLOG PENDING'.
For QSQSRVR jobs: The Job Description is QDFTSVR, and can be changed using command:

CHGJOBD JOBD(QGPL/QDFTSVR) LOGOUTPUT(*JOBEND)

Note:

  • It's possible that the default setting for the LOGOUTPUT parameter is *PND, which is what causes this situation.
  • The change will apply only to new jobs started - existing active jobs and those already in JOBLOG PENDING state will not be affected.
  • Either manually remove these or IPL to clear them.
