hi sir plz let me knw dis

As you're rather new here, i'll explain. You need to do as others have suggested and use regular English words and sentences. Don't worry if your English is limited - we can help with this too.

Your post does not explain what you want to learn. If you clarify what you want to learn, someone should be able to help.
Hope this helps,

There are several conceptual problems here.
  • The first "priority" is job selection priority, and even that is very confusing. The PRTY=nn JOB statement parameter has nothing to do with job selection priority. In systems before workload management, job class had more to do with job selection than job selection priority.
  • The second "priority" is the priority used to schedule your jobs use of CPU. This is even more confusing. MVS and its ancestors going back to OS/360 have been very good at metering CPU to jobs without too much external assistance. The PRTY=nn JOB statement parameter goes back to OS/360, but most shops banned its use as it interfered with automatic priority adjustment as used then. Practically speaking, once your job is running it is not possible to adjust this.
Before anyone here can assist you, we must know more about your requirement.
