I’m with Natural for some decades, so to place my question is somewhat painful.
Working on IBM z/OS, I have to tune a Batch Programm.
To get a baseline I determinted the Elpased time as usual:
at the begin START. SETTIME at the end TD_ := *TIMD (START.) with TD_ defined as 2 TD_ N 7 /*TIMD R 2 TD_ /* BEGIN REDEFINE: TD_ 3 TDHH_ N 2 3 TDMM_ N 2 3 TDSS_ N 2 3 TDTS_ N 1
Inspecting the log I see: “Elapsed time: 19:11:39.2”
Checking the JES2 Job Log
Job Start: 13.52.46 JOB39601 ---- THURSDAY, 09 JUL 2015 ----
Natural Step started 13.56.48
Natural Step terminated
09.08.28 JOB39601 ---- SATURDAY, 11 JUL 2015 ----
Based on this *TIMD() embezzled 24 hours.
I checked all available documentation, but I was unable to find any Limitation for *TIMD().
Is the a Maximum for *TIMD()?
Any Feedback is welcomed.
