Running Jobs (previously Job Status During Interval)

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

This report combines information from all the type 30 subtypes to show job status and resource consumption during the report period.

 

The status can be reported as Started, Ended, Running or Complete.

 

Started - The job started during the interval, and was still running at the end of the interval. One of the following was found:

oa job start record

oa record from step 1 and the start time was during the interval

oa subtype 5 record and the job start time was during the interval

but no job end record was found

Ended - The job was running at the beginning of the interval, and ended during the interval. A job end record was found but no start record.

Running - The job was running for the whole interval. Only interval or step end records were found.

Complete - The job started and ended during the interval. Both start and end records were found.

 

An accurate status depends on all the type 30 subtypes being collected - e.g. if you only collect subtype 5 records you will only see Ended or Complete entries. The interval must also be long enough to capture interval records, and more than one SMF interval to show resource consumption.

 

Information from the records is combined to show actual resources consumed during the interval.

* Δ Delta (change) values show the difference between the values at the start and end of the interval. They are calculated from fields that show maximum values (high water marks). The delta value is calculated as follows:

If the job started during the interval, the starting value is 0. Otherwise, the starting value is the value from the first SMF record.

If the job ended during the interval, the ending value is 0.

The ending value is updated by interval records.

If a step ends, the ending value is set to 0. Interval records from subsequent steps can increase it again.

The change is the end value - start value. The value can be negative for jobs or steps that were running when the interval started.

If a job started and ended during the interval, the change is 0.
