happy! Robert McCarty uses this handy cheat sheet as a daily check to keep his system running smoothly –- and his IT department happy!1. DSPJOBD on three data file libraries gives me a birds-eye view of what files are growing, got created, and helps me keep tabs on my disk usage.
2. DSPFD with MBR option tells me what files need to be cleaned up or re-organized.
3. DLTSPLF: I wrote a clean-up routine, to display out-queues, determine the date of reports, and to delete if more than 3/14/31 days old.
4. Created a menu: MENUIT option
2) DSPMSGQ QSYSOPR
3) WRKOUTQ *ALL
4) WRKWTR *ALL
No more fumbling with commands/syntax! This cheat sheet contains all of the daily commands used by any iSeries shop. (My listing is incomplete, but it gives you the idea.)
5. I created a user program to unlock a LCKW user. We have RF (18) scanners and they lock/drop three to four times a day –- now the user can unlock themselves. The program uses WRKUSRJOB and WRKACTJOB to get relevant information.
Item #4 is my favorite, plus the IT department loves it -- the Windows folks especially!

Most enjoyed the iSeries for… This machine is so easy to use, the menu (GO MAIN) and the commands (WRKCMD) makes it so.
Advice for other iSeries users: Use GO MAIN to get to your destination. If ever in doubt, use WRKCMD *ALL to see all that is Log on to the IBM iSeries Web site and read!
