Defines the minimum input priority that a job or session
must have in order to execute.
priorityfence A number between 0 and 14, inclusive.this range,
smaller numbers are less limiting; larger numbers
MPE/iX will not dispatch jobs or sessions with an input
priority less than or equal to the priorityfence until their
input priority is raised with the ALTJOB command, or until
the JOBFENCE is lowered. System managers and system
supervisors may override the JOBFENCE setting by logging on
with the ;HIPRI parameter of the JOB or HELLO commands.
Or, they may log on with an input priority greater than the
JOBFENCE as reported by the SHOWJOB command.
This command may be issued from a session, job, program, or
in BREAK. Pressing [Break] has no effect on this command. It
may be issued only from the console unless it is distributed
to users with the ALLOW command.
To defer all non-HIPRI jobs and sessions, first set the
JOBFENCE to 14, as shown below.
1618/#J7/34/DEFERRED JOB INTRODUCED ON LDEV #10
1618/#J8/35/DEFERRED JOB INTRODUCED ON LDEV #10
Then enter the SHOWJOB command to display the effect of the
JOBNUM STATE IPRI JIN JLIST INTRODUCED JOB NAME

2 WAIT; INCL 2 DEFERRED
1 EXEC; INCL 1 SESSIONS
JOBFENCE= 14; JLIMIT= 5; SLIMIT=16
Finally, reset the JOBFENCE to 6, which will allow waiting
jobs to log on.
