LSTAL - display the status of the batch world.
lsta [snumb] [-Other|-Swap|-SYstem|-Verbose|+Zdebug]*
- If a specific snumb is entered as a five character string
argument, and the job has a kpx, it alone is displayed.
- suppresses printing of information about other workspaces
(i.e. those not associated with a KPX). Normally,
"+Other" is the default; if a specific snumb is
mentioned then "-Other" is the default.
- suppresses the privileged system slaves such as TSS, GEOT
- snaps only information in memory; this means LSTAL
doesn't have to read the swap files. This is default for
- shows program details only. The column headers and memory
summary lines are suppressed.
- uses the GCOS dump in the named master mode dumpfile,
rather than giving information about the currently
- dumps various debugging information.
LSTAL displays the following statistics for each job.
- Known Process indeX (KPX) (octal)
- Job SNUMB
- Activity number (decimal)
- Urgency (decimal). A "+" before the urgency of
a job in memory means the job has privity. A letter
"A" or "B" after the urgency of a job
in memory indicates the special dispatch urgency.
- Name of current activity
- Current job size (decimal k). A "-" after the
size indicates that the job is not currently in memory
and is either swapped or waiting memory.
- USERID of the job
- Line id of originating remote station
- Time used (in hours/100)
- Time remaining (in hours/100)
- Job status
- Miscellaneous Information
- Varies from job to job, as follows:
$SYOT Total free SYSOUT blinks
TSS Total number of TSS users
$FSYS List of all busy SMC buckets.
OTHER JOBS Banner information in $ IDENT card
Possible job status messages are:
RMT 1 Remote phase one
RMT 2 Remote phase two
MEM Job is waiting for memory
MEDIA Job is waiting for tape/disc mount
SWAP Job swapped out
NJALC New job for $PALC
NAALC New activity for $PALC
REST Job is in restart
SIEVE Job is caught in the SIEVE
LIMBO Job waiting on a get tape/disk message
HOLD Job is in hold
EXEC Job is executing
TERM Job is terminating
CARD Card GEIN reading this job
IMVC IMVC reading this job
OVRD Allocation overdue
For working spaces not associated with a KPX, the WSN is shown
in the SNUMB column, the number of pages in the SIZE column, and
the remainder of the line describes the working space, if
At the end of the batch status display, LSTAL prints total
free memory and total memory available for slave programs.
The memory size displayed for TSS (kpx = 6) is the sum of the
size word (.TACOR) and the POMU table entry since TSS acquires
memory for subsystems from .MEXTM. The two terms are shown in the
userid field in the form "nnK, xxxPGS", where
"nn" is TSS's size according to POP's tables, and
"xxx" is the number of EXTM pages.
