    Displaying Open Files with Work Job

    While I was at the Power Systems Technical University in London a couple of weeks ago, a conference attendee in my work management presentation asked me this question: “How do I make WRKJOB, option 14 (display open files), display the I/O information rather than the activation group information?  I always have to press F11 to see the I/O details.”

    IBM i Navigator System Monitors: Collection Interval

    Recently I wrote about IBM i 7.3 System Monitor Enhancements and mentioned the default monitor collection interval was changed to 60 seconds.  On the 7.2 release, the default collection interval was 15 seconds; IBM has recently changed the default on 7.2 to 60 seconds.  For this change, you will need the Navigator service pack that was made available this past June.  You can find the details of the required PTFs and PTF Groups on the developerWorks page for Navigator PTFs.
