eZ-Spool ensures optimum system performance and space saving by managing your spooled files and data in a compressed format and indexes them for easy search and retrieval.
With eZ-Spool, you can easily improve the performance of your iSeries and save valuable disk space.
It runs in its own sub-system and can be scheduled to run at a convenient time and date, to further avoid impacting on system performance.
eZ-Spool can monitor your iSeries system output queues, scanning the system, using a series of easy-to-define processing rules.
Then, by saving spooled files in a compressed format, both disk space and system memory can then be put to better use by the operating system.
Unwanted spooled files can be simply removed altogether.
All saved spooled files will be indexed automatically, using the original spooled file attributes, and can be retrieved instantly using advanced search criteria.
You can retrieve all invoices for a given date range, created by an individual user. Useful command prompts make this available to any user and not just the system administrator.

The iSeries has a finite number of job table entries, when this when this limit is reached, no more jobs can be added into the system.
Each job in the system holds a job table entry until it finishes and all spooled files for that job are deleted. These job table entries also take up system memory.
By removing the spooled files, you can free up both disk space and memory.
Jobs In System
