At your Disaster Recover exercise, you need to manually control the jobs/events that run. You do not code CLASS in the event definition and understand that EVENT prefixes will be used as the default CLASS. How do you release specific events while keeping all other groups on hold?
Need to control workload during a Disaster Recovery exercise.
Use the following procedure:
(Note - TEST is used here as an example of a group prefix. You will need to supply your own group prefix name.)
Holding an event is different from suspending it.
If the scheduled time for an event comes up while it is in the suspended state, the event execution is bypassed, and it is not considered overdue.
If the event is in a held state, it is placed in an overdue status. When the event is finally released, the overdue count is checked to see whether execution should proceed.
The event is checked immediately for every occurrence missed while in the held state, up to the overdue limit count specified when the event was defined.
If an event is in both a suspended and hold state when due for scheduling, the hold state is ignored, and the event is considered suspended.
The HOLD command is used with the RELEASE command. The SUSPEND command is used with the RESUME command.
