View Full Version : System Value - QINACTITV

The system watch dog will check for idle jobs every 60 minutes. This means your job could start just after that check, only be idle for 59 minutes during the next check and then be dealt with on the next check after you job has actually been idle for 119 minutes. Chris

Chris, How sure are you about this? I've always been under the assumption that it's checking jobs constantly and once the job has been inactive for 60 minutes, then it fires to the message queue.

That's the way Wayne Evans (http://www.woevans.com/) explained it to me a few years ago when I took his OS/400 security class. Maybe it's changed since then? Chris

Chris' explanation is correct.

After looking in the Work Management manual, it does indeed seem to be that way: "You can control the amount of time the workstation can remain inactive before the subsystem sends a message (called time-out) by specifying a time interval in the QINACTITV system value. At the end of the specified time interval, the subsystem checks the interactive jobs running in it to determine whether any of the workstations have been inactive for the entire interval. See "QINACTITV System Value" in topic 2.3.54 for a complete description of the system value QINACTITV." Bill > Chris' explanation is correct.

If you need confirmation about how often it checks, look in QSYSOPR for CPI1133 - All jobs at work station S360028S1 disconnected. We have the value set to 15 minutes and the messages ONLY appear on the 15 minute boundaries: 8:15 8:30 8:45 etc.... Trevor

Hi, I have set the system value QINACTITV to 60 for my server having V4R4. But the thing is my session is not disconnected after 60 minutes of inactivity but some time after that. How does this value actually work -- Does it count 60 minutes from the time i started my session or at every 60th minute the system checks for any sessions that have completed their 60 minutes ! thanx in advance ..

Thank you all for your inputs. This clarifies my doubt.
