Extract JOBD LIBL Published by: Joel Quisenberry on 31 Jul 2012 view comments(4)

I looked on the web for ways to extract the JOBD LIBL into a file for analysis, and found a few, but the links are now broken. Any one out here know of a place to see examples of how to do it?

Joel,

Does it have to be into a file? You can retrieve the libl with the RTVJOBA command and parse out the individual libraries.

Just an idea. Good luck.

Use QWDRJOBD (google it and look for the publib.boulder.ibm.com url's).

To extract library list you need to extract the entire length of data available

360 168 BINARY(4) Offset to initial library list
364 16C BINARY(4) Number of libraries in initial library list
* * ARRAY (*) of CHAR(11) Initial library list

File is best as it will end up in excel for analysis of the many, many jobds.

I did finally find an example on the web (might be one of cozzi's).

I have downloaded the source and will see what I get out of it!

Sorry full solution would be:

  1. Create file for library list data.
  2. Create program that lists all jobd's on system into a userspace, then cycle through the entries in the userspace and retrieve the library list and other data of the jobd, an write a record for each into the file.
  3. Run the program.
