While RPG application developers can easily access job-related information, such as the current job date (special words such as UDATE or *DATE) and the current user of the program (offset 358 through 367 of the PSDS), there are (admittedly infrequent) times when the developer also needs specific pieces of system-related information. Items that rapidly come to mind are the serial number of the system and the name of the system, though I've also seen questions about the serial number of the LPAR the application is running on, how many processors there are on the system, and so on.
