The information returned is similar to the detail seen from the Work with Active Jobs (WRKACTJOB) command and the List Job (QUSLJOB) API. The ACTIVE_JOB_INFO table function has two uses:
1. To see details for all, or a subset of, active jobs. A subset of active jobs can be requested by using the optional filter parameters.
2. To measure elapsed statistics for active jobs. You can use an optional parameter to reset statistics, similar to the WRKACTJOB command F10 Restart Statistics function. Measurements will be calculated based on this new starting point.
