Monitor jobs which consume CPU seconds beyond threshold

Postby Wolfernl » Fri Mar 11, 2011 5:34 pm

Hi All

My apologies if this has been posted in the wrong section.

1 - Are there any system tool/utilities <at no extra cost> available that would be able to monitor BATCH/ONLINE jobs that consume more than eg. 900 seconds of CPU time?
2 - Is it possible to extract <SMF records?> for a period of time all jobs that exceeded eg. 900 seconds of CPU time?

I appreciate your help in this regard.

Thanks

1. I'm not aware of any no-cost alternatives. Monitoring tools are complex and hence they tend to cost a bit.

2. Yes, however, it is not an easy task to do so. Look at the SMF type 30 subtype 5 records. If your site has MICS or MXG, the data you want is probably already available from your site support group.

The TIME= parameter in the JOB and EXEC statements is a very low cost way to stop programs that are unexpectedly looping.

Robert Sample has a solution to allow you to find out who is being a bad program.
