Prestart jobs are used to service requests from clients in the network. There are many uses of prestart jobs on IBM i, the most common is the database server. Prestart jobs present many challenges for how to understand what is happening on the system, what work requests these jobs are handling, and generally how to manage them. This session will review all the key characteristics of prestart jobs, provide many tips to better understand what is happening on your system, and review how you can use subsystem configuration to better manage your prestart jobs.

Learning Objectives:
The attendee will learn how to better manage prestart server jobs. The topics are many, but will include managing job logs and output, using Watches to debug intermittent problems, determining what the job is doing, including the SQL statement the job is running, how to determine the rate at which prestart jobs are being used and reused, subsystem configuration for prestart jobs, and much more.
