Displaying Jobs and OMVS Processes

The D A command includes the ability to filter on userid. D A,L,USERID=myuser will display any address space running with userid myuser.

You can also specify pattern characters as a jobname. For example,

D A,BAT* will display any address space running with a jobname beginnning with BAT.

OMVS Processes

The D OMVS command incorporates similar filtering capability to the D A comand: D OMVS,U=myuser will display any OMVS work running with userid myuser.

You can also filter this display based on address space id (A=) or process id (PID=). If you display a process, you will also get information about threads running under that process. A=ALL will display all address spaces with OMVS activity.

One way of stopping an OMVS process is to issue the following command:

F BPXOINIT,TERM=pid where pid is the process id.

See the REXX OMVS page here for another way to look at what OMVS work is running.
