BREAKJOB



BREAKJOB

     Suspends an executing job.

SYNTAX

     BREAKJOB #Jnnn


PARAMETERS

#Jnnn               A job number.



OPERATION

     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
     SHOWJOB SUSP.

     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.
