    Some basic commands that might be used were listed by SaranAS400. Rather than getting too tied to commands, I suggest that you use iSeries Navigator (or whichever Navigator is appropriate for your system) for almost all of your monitoring and control. You should definitely become familiar with commands and the command interface, but you'll be much better served in your day to day work if you learn how to use Navigator for the vast majority of your tasks. As for which jobs to monitor, there's no way we can answer that because we have no idea what you run on your system. Tom
