Extend WRKJOB (or new SQL service) to show open descriptors of a job
When analyzing issues some times I must also check how many descriptors a job has in use. In case of f_type VNODE I will also check the IFS path.
To get these information I must execute the following statement:
CALL PGM(QP0FPTOS) PARM('*DUMPLFS' &X_JOBNBR)
Then go into the created spool file QSYSPRT and search for "*** Descriptor table". It is at the end of the spool.
Like showing the environment variables in WRKJOB using the new option 22 (in older IBM i release I had to execute CALL QSYS/QP0ZMAINT ('30'&X_JOBNBR'0''30')) I wish there is a new option 23 to show the in use descriptors of a job.
Currently, in order to monitor the file/socket descriptor of those jobs we need the job number and put it in the CALL QP0FPTOS PARM(*DUMPLFS 'xxx') command and see the value of each job on each spoolfile.
There are more than 50 jobs that the cus...
