Requirement Jobs

  • 1.  Requirement Jobs

    Posted 2 days ago
    I have a job which is a requirement to another job. This past weekend it was noticed that Job A ran without waiting for the requirement job. I have looked back through the history archive tapes to see if maybe someone had posted the requirement and did not see this as happening. I demanded in my job A on hold to look at the requirements and noticed that my requirement job was not there in the list of jobs. I then tried adding the requirement to a test job and demanded in the test job and the requirement did not show on the test job either. I have compared a lot of different jobs on the DB.1 screen to see if there was a difference there and did not see any  difference. Has anyone else had an issue where a requirement does not show up after being added?

    Lennie,
    On DB.3.2 screen are there pred specifications by SCHID?
    What CA7 command was entered to view the preds?  Was it a command that shows the 'satisfied' and 'unsatisfied' requirements?

    For Example:
    LQ,JOB=STARTCRT,LIST=RQMT
    LIST=RQMT JOB=STARTCRT DATE=21.054 PAGE 0001

    JOB QUEUE CA-7 -DAY(DDD) AND TIME(HHMM)-- CPU SCH ENTRY MSTR JOB
    NAME NAME JOB# DEADLINE SUB/START DUE-OUT SPEC/RUN ID MODE REQ STATUS


    STARTCRT REQ 4431 054/1654 *NONE* 054/1700 ALL- 001 SSCN 001

    ------------------------- REQUIREMENTS STATUS -------------------------
    ___X___ INTERNAL JOB=DA29 DATE/TIME=21054/1445 (JOB )
    _______ INTERNAL JOB=DYA20 DATE/TIME=21054/0735 (JOB )
    ___X___ INTERNAL JOB=UV52 DATE/TIME=21054/1500 (JOB )

    SLIF-00 REQUEST COMPLETED AT 15:10:39 ON 21.054

    Bob,
     When this issue was brought up to us, we actually demanded in the job on hold so we could check the requirements on the job. Once we went into the job in the XQ to look at the requirements, that's when we noticed that the requirement was not even on the job. We added the same requirement job to a test job and demanded that job in on hold, and the requirement was not there either. Somehow this job is just not coming up as a requirement

    Lennie,
    If the pred requirement is actually connected OK but is satisfied (for some reason) the XQ command only shows unsatisfied requirements. The 'LQ,JOB=JOBNAME,LIST-RQMT' will show satisfied and unsatisfied requirements for the Job in the queue. If the LQ output shows the pred as satisfied (_X_ INTERNAL JOB=Jobname) the pred is getting satisfied somehow (pred out of sync, pred job ran within Lead Time, Lead Time is 0 ... etc.). Just a thought.
    Thanks  Bob S.

    What type of leadtm are you using on the job?  Are you using a conditional req(?) or leadtm=99?
