No Logging

We lost a power supply causing our 820 to crash during dayend processing. The jobd forces logging but we did got only a 1 page joblog when the system came back up with the date/time after the system IPL. Why did I not get a full joblog? It would have allowed us to figure out where processing abended.

Hi,

If your system has gone down with a power failure, it’s probably stopped immediately and not been able to write out any joblogs.

I guess it didn’t switch over to battery backup before it went down? If the system isn’t running, it can’t write logs.

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.

=========================================================

The term “joblog” has two general meanings. One is the job’s external message queue and any active program message queues while the job is running; this is what gets copied to your screen when you take option 10 from the DSPJOB menu. The other meaning is the spooled report of the content of those message queues that is created when a job ends.

So…

<i>Why did I not get a full joblog?</i>

Because you lost a power supply and the system crashed. There wasn’t time to copy the job’s message queue to the spooled representation of a “joblog”.

    It is the job/step execution and logging afterwards. So that means any job item when completed gets logged, when the power went off, a job (may be lengthy one) was running and did not complete and did not get logged.
