Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Introduction

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:
helpdesk@simotime.com


We have made a significant effort to ensure the documents and software technologies are correct and accurate. We reserve the right to make changes without notice at any time. The function delivered in this version is based upon the enhancement requests from a specific group of users. The intent is to provide changes as the need arises and in a timeframe that is dependent upon the availability of resources.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section MFJESLOG, What It Does

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.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Example of Job Information

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.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Elapsed Time by Job

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.
