Background

If you do not have access to the Advanced Job Scheduler on the IBM i servers, this program can help you to submit a job a recurring number of times. The source consists of the following

 RTVJOBCNT - CMD - Retrieve Job Count
 RTVJOBCN#C - CLLE - Retrieve Job Count CL Program
 SBMRECJOB - CMD - Submit Recurring Job
 SBMRECJ#C - CLLE - Submit recurring Job CL PRogram

Using the program

If you issue the command SBMRECJOB, you have to provide the following fields:

                            Submit Recurring Job (SBMRECJOB)                        
                                                                                 
  Type choices, press Enter.

  • Command to submit: Specify the command here. You can also prompt the command to give the correct values and parameters
  • Submitted Job name: The command specified will be submitted using the specified job name.
  • Submitted Job User Profile: Under which profile should the submitted job run. Can also specify *CURRENT for the user running the current job.
  • Submitted Job queue to use: Specify a jobq to use for the submission. Can also specify *JOBD to use the JOBD from the user profile
  • Allow Duplicate Jobs: If there should always be only one job with this name running, use *NO here. If you do not care whether the previous job ended or not, you can ignore duplicate jobs and specify *YES here
  • Number of recurring iterations: Specify how many times this job will be submitted
  • Delay between iterations: Specify here how may seconds delay should take place between submissions. This behaviour is also governed by the "Allow Duplicate Jobs" parameter:
- Allow Duplicate Jobs = *YES - Delay will be between submissions. If the delay is 60 seconds, every 60 seconds a submission will take place
- Allow Duplicate Jobs = *NO - Delay will be xx number of seconds after the one job ended and the next one is submitted again
