ESP simulate for a date range

Jump to Best Answer
  • 1.  ESP simulate for a date range

    Posted 01-16-2020 12:25 AM
    Is it possible to run a simulation for for a date range.

    I want to run a simulation to check what days the job/s would be scheduled say for the month of February 2020.

    If I execute the following -:

    SIMULATE EVENT(ESPVP.SCHED) SCHED(FEB)

    I only get the results displayed for FEBRUARY 1ST 2020.


    Is there an option to simulate the runs for the full month of February 2020.

    The contents of the PROC invoked by the event are -:

    APPL VPTEST01
    JCLLIB ESPVP.JCLLIB
    JOB VPTEST01
       EARLY SUB 07:00
       RUN DAILY
       NORUN MONDAY
       NORUN 25TH OF MONTH
       NORUN LAST SATURDAY OF MONTH
    ENDJOB

    Basically I want to check whats days of the month the job will be scheduled do I specify the exact dates to the SIMULATE command, Is there an option to specify a date range ?
    Above is just one simple example we have several complex scheduling criteria I want to simulate to check when the jobs will run.

    Hello,

    Yes, you can run SADGEN/LSAR report. They allow you to specify a date range.

    For example, you can use following in batch JCL:
    SADGEN DATASET('CYBER.SAD') -
    FROM('00.00 Feb 1ST') TO('23.59 Feb 29') -
    EVENTSET(EVENT1) -
    LEVEL(ESPVP)

    LSAR DSN('CYBER.SAD') JOB(VPTEST01) -
    FROM('00.00 Feb 1ST UNTIL 23.59 Feb 29') TIMESEQ

    Note: in SADGEN, you can only specify the event prefix on LEVEL, so it will simulate all events with prefix ESPVP.

    See more on following online doc links:

    Hope this helps,

    I'm a little late replying to this thread, but wanted to offer an alternative.

    We do not use SADGEN in our environment.

    I looked at the TEST and NEXT commands to see if they would help but then do not take into account the NORUN statements.

    I created an ESP PROC with a VPTEST01 Job with the same RUN/NORUN statements you used.

    I created a simple REXX CSF Extension in the attached file.

    To SIMULATE Feb 1, 2020 to Mar 1, 2020 the formatted output:

    EVENT ESPVP.SCHED

    Simulation Date                JobName    Selection Status
    ============================== ========== =====================================
