Disconnected Job Time-Out Interval (QDSCJOBITV)

The Disconnected Job Time-Out Interval (QDSCJOBITV) system value determines if and when the system ends a disconnected job. The interval is specified in minutes.

If you set the QINACTMSGQ system value to disconnect inactive jobs (*DSCJOB), you should set the QDSCJOBITV to end the disconnected jobs eventually. A disconnected job uses up system resources, as well as retaining any locks on objects.

Note: This system value is a restricted value. See Security system values for details on how to restrict changes to security system values and a complete list of the restricted system values.
