Command  TSO JOBCLASS CLASS (Job Class) -----------------IBM STANDARD PURPOSE OF THE CLASS KEYWORD.

The purpose of the CLASS keyword is to specify the classification or grouping into which a particular job will be placed. In a Multiprogramming environment, where a variable number of tasks can be run concurrently, jobs with similar characteristics are grouped into the same job class. An attempt is made by the operating system to concurrently process jobs with unrelated characteristics. Jobs with unrelated characteristics provide a good processing mix. They tend to compliment rather than compete with each other for resources. This in turn tends to increase the total through-put of an installation’s operation.
I.S GUIDELINE Job classes are as follows : ADDC CLASS=C COMPILES ADDC CLASS=P PRODUCTION - CART ADDC CLASS=D PRODUCTION - DISK ONLY All test jobs must run in CLASS A. Following Exceptions : ODDC & ADDC CLASS=A OR CLASS=B (class=b is for 30 seconds or less of CPU time) MIS1 CLASS=B CLDC CLASS=A ******************** NOTE ********************************* TEST JOBS RUNNING IN ANY OTHER CLASS ON A PRODUCTION SITE WILL BE TERMINATED!!!! *****************************************************************

- SPECIALS are to run in the SAME CLASS ASSIGNMENT as TESTS on all Production sites; with one exception. IF they are going to run for more than an hour, a "Change Control" must be cut and they will be instructed as to what class to use. NOTE: CLASS=O is being used for the special's "submit" process from ADDC to any production site. It will run in CLASS=O on those sites only. This is ONLY for the special "SUBMIT" process. Anything else running CLASS=O will be canceled. Operations does not want jobs run in the BMP class to have non-BMP steps. Data Resource Management may approve alternatives. The listed Job Classes are defined in Corporate Standard GDLNA01 (V;H;2;2) on ADDC. Special Classes/Exceptions (Operations permission required for Production Jobs)
