For IBM System i (V5R4), is there such a thing as a system log that records all status changes for a spool file, specifically who held or released a hold and when?

I know about attaching a data queue to an out queue, but that only "triggers" an entry when a spool file is set/changed to ready status.

Any assistance / advice is appreciated.

    Assuming that your system is configured to audit the actions that you're interested in, the system audit journal is one place to look. You might look for PO (Printer Output) or SF (Action to Spooled File) journal entries. And you might choose to set up up job accounting for *PRINT actions if it's not already done. Tom
