Confusing job status between DQM and Dollar Universe

CA Automic Dollar Universe


There is a disjointed job status between DQM and Dollar Universe. On the Dollar Universe side, the jobs are in a PENDING status while in DQM they are in an EXECUTING status even though the jobs are already completed on the system.

Other symptoms could be that jobs are not submitted from logical to physical queues.

There is no error message but the staus of the jobs between Dollar Universe and DQM are not consistent.

Dollar Universe version 5.x


Cause type: Configuration
Root Cause: The DQM data files may have been corrupted due to file system full or Dollar Universe was never stopped before stopping the host machine.


If the issue remains, the reinitialization of DQM data files is necessary.

  1. Rename the DQM files to have a backup: u_jobfile.dta, u_prmfile.dta and u_quefile.dta.
  2. If available, replace the three data files with a good backup.
  3. Modify the uxstartup_gen to comment out the line that starts the launcher.
  4. Restart Dollar Universe.
  5. Recreate the batch queues via the GUI(UVC or GCO).
  6. Restart Launcher from the GUI(UVC or GCO).
  7. Uncomment out the line that starts the launcher in uxstartup_gen.

Additional Information

Workaround :
  1. Stop Dollar Universe.
  2. Run the offline reorganization for Dollar Universe data files.
  3. Restart Dollar Universe. The reorganization of DQM data files is automatically done before restarting DQM process.
