JES Log Scanner
Create CSV File with Elapsed Time
|The SimoTime Home Page|
The ability to review the results of batch job executions is a requirement for regression testing. The JES Spool provides the basic information. However, summarizing the information and calculating elapsed time for jobs and job steps takes additional time and effort. The MFJESLOG Utility Program is used with Micro Focus Enterprise Server to programmatically summarize this information and provides a summary file that may be easily imported into an Excel Spreadsheet.
Additional information about this program may be obtained by sending an e-mail to:

The MFJESLOG utility program will scan the Micro Focus JES Spool Output and write the information to a CSV File that can be easily imported into an Excel Spread Sheet. The utility has an optional feature to write to an HTML file or ASCII/Text File.
This program provides presentation alternatives for reviewing or sharing the contents of the Micro Focus JES log. The MFJESLOG program will read a JES Spool file created by Micro Focus and produce an HTML or CSV file with job and job step information such as start, stop and elapsed times along with the Job Name, Job Number and the condition code at the end of each step and at the end of job.
The following command file (EZJESLOG.cmd) describes how to use the MFJESLOG program.

The job execution was performed on a test system . The test cases were executed in a re-constructed test environment but may not have been the only jobs running on the system.
Reviewing JES Output to review the results of job execution can be very time consuming. The following summary of elapsed time for each of the test cases was created by programmatically accessing the JES Spool Output produced by the Micro Focus Server.
The following shows the CSV file created by the JES Spool Scanner program that calculates elapsed times for all the jobs in the SPOOL folder.

SimoTime Technologies was founded in 1987 and is a privately owned company. We specialize in the creation and deployment of business applications using new or existing technologies and services. We have a team of individuals that understand the broad range of technologies being used in today's environments. Our customers include small businesses using Internet technologies to corporations using very large mainframe systems.
Quite often, to reach larger markets or provide a higher level of service to existing customers it requires the newer Internet technologies to work in a complementary manner with existing corporate mainframe systems. We specialize in preparing applications and the associated data that are currently residing on a single platform to be distributed across a variety of platforms.
Preparing the application programs will require the transfer of source members that will be compiled and deployed on the target platform. The data will need to be transferred between the systems and may need to be converted and validated at various stages within the process. SimoTime has the technology, services and experience to assist in the application and data management tasks involved with doing business in a multi-system environment.
