With (E)JES, you can:

  • Control job processing (hold, release, cancel, and purge jobs)
  • Monitor jobs while they are running
  • Browse jobs without printing
  • Control JESplex parameters, initiators, job classes, and job class groups
  • Control printers, punches, functional subsystems, and NJE devices
  • Control your JES spool configuration
  • Monitor and control JES resources
  • Control WLM scheduling environments and resources
  • Control WLM enclaves and z/OS UNIX processes
  • Control the z/OS Health Checker
  • Issue system commands

(E)JES consists of panels that provide immediate and current information about jobs, printers, queues, and resources in a z/OS JESplex. With (E)JES, you can easily access and modify all attributes for jobs, started tasks, TSO users, APPC/MVS transaction jobs, z/OS UNIX processes running anywhere in your JESplex. Simple commands and rapid accessibility not only save you time, but also make interaction with your JES subsystems easy.

(E)JES lets you easily manage jobs in your spool. It gives immediate, up-to-date information, such as:

  • The status, class, priority, date, and time of a job
  • All jobs on a queue, such as input, hold, or output
  • Job details no matter where it is in the JESplex
  • Reasons a job is delayed
  • Output from a job as it is created no matter where, the job is running in the JESplex

(E)JES displays detailed information about output that is ready to be printed, including:

  • The total number of lines to be printed
  • Classes the output is assigned to
  • Forms needed for printing
  • Date the output was created

(E)JES provides an effective way to manage resources.

  • Control and manage JESplex parameters, JES-managed initiators (JES2), job classes, and job class groups (JES3)
  • Control NJE nodes
  • Control and manage WLM resources
  • Control WLM enclaves and z/OS UNIX processes
  • Control the z/OS Health Checker
  • Control and manage system requests
  • Reduce problem management time
  • Issue system commands

You can tailor (E)JES to meet the needs of your users and your security requirements. You can control:

  • Who can use (E)JES
  • Which users can issue (E)JES control commands
  • Which users can issue system commands
  • For which jobs users can issue commands
  • Which columns to display on panels
  • Which jobs and output to display on panels
  • You can implement these controls internally or through the SAF and an external program such as RACF ®.

With (E)JES, you have a single interface to some of the most important devices on your system:

  • Local and remote printers and punches
  • Spool partitions and volumes
  • JES3 functional subsystems

The (E)JES Application Programming Interface (API) and companion REXX API make powerful (E)JES functionality available to programs, allowing users to:

  • Create programs to perform routine tasks
  • Use installation-written applications to obtain system information
  • Use System REXX to access “smart” tools and commands without TSO/E access
