Suspends an executing job.
#Jnnn A job number.
The operator can use the BREAKJOB command to suspend any
executing job, including spooled and streamed jobs. A job
using a critical system resource will not be suspended until
it releases the resource.
When you issue BREAKJOB for a job that controls a
nonsharable device, a console message is displayed listing
the device(s) that the job controls. (As many as ten
devices may be listed.) You may then decide whether the job
should be allowed to run until it releases the device(s), or
whether it should be aborted.
All commands that normally affect executing jobs, such as
ABORTJOB, will operate on suspended jobs. The SHOWJOB
command, which lists all jobs, will display SUSP for those
in the suspended state. To list suspended jobs only, enter
This command may be issued from a session, job, or program, and
in BREAK. Pressing [Break] has no effect on this command. It is
executable only from the console, unless it has been distributed
to users with the ALLOW command or when JOBSECURITY is set LOW.
