I am fairly new to the iSeries and need to find out if there is a way to view users and there jobs for a particular time and day. I need to basically find out who has been printing reports on a particular network printer on a specific date and time. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Joe

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You’ll find the logs in <i>QPJOBLOG</i>. To view the job logs — type in <i>WRKOUTQ QPJOBLOG</i> and then press enter.

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

Previous suggestions might give some general clues. If you need to be certain, there are options that must enabled on the system.

First would be the system audit journal — QAUDJRN. System value QAUDLVL should specify *PRTDTA (and possibly *SPLFDTA) to log audit events related to printing.

Better and more direct info could be retained in the system accounting journal — QACGJRN. Tracking printer usage is enabled with system value QACGLVL which should include the value *PRINT.

With the accounting entries, you can get very detailed info about who was printing how many pages of what reports on which printers during dates/times of your choosing.
