MIMIX uses a customized set of job descriptions and job classes. Customized job descriptions optimize characteristics for a category of jobs, including the user profile, job queue, message logging level, and routing data for the job. Customized job classes optimize runtime characteristics such as the job priority and CPU time slice for a category of jobs. All of the shipped job descriptions and job classes are configured with recommended default values.

Job descriptions control batch processing. MIMIX features use a set of default job descriptions, MXAUDIT, MXSYNC, and MXDFT. When MIMIX is installed, these job descriptions are automatically restored in the product library. These job descriptions exist in the product library of each MIMIX installation. Jobs and related output are associated with the user profile submitting the request. Commands such as Compare File Attributes (CMPFILA), Compare File Data (CMPFILDTA), Synchronize Object (SYNCOBJ), as well as numerous others support this standard.

Older commands that provide job description support for batch processing use different job descriptions that are located in the MIMIXQGPL library. The MIMIXQGPL library, along with these job descriptions, is automatically restored on the system when a MIMIX product is installed. Installing additional MIMIX installations on the same system does not create additional copies of these job descriptions.

Table 1. shows a combined list of MIMIX job descriptions.

MIMIXVFY

MIMIX Verify. Used for MIMIX verify and compare command processes. This is valid for verify and compare commands that do not have a JOBD parameter on the display.

X

PORTnnnnn or alias name

MIMIX TCP Server, where nnnnn identifies the server port number or alias. A job description exists for each transfer definition which uses TCP protocol and enables MIMIX to create and manage autostart job entries. Characters nnnnn in the name identify the server port.

X1 

1 The job descriptions are created in the installation library when transfer definitions which specify PROTOCOL(*TCP) and MNGAJE(*YES) are created or changed. The associated autostart job entries are added to the subsystem description for the MIMIXSBS subsystem in library MIMIXQGPL.
