Our May 15, 2021 refresh (R72) is now available.
This refresh includes a critical fix for the DLTUSRPRF3 tool. If you do not plan on updating to this refresh at this time, please install this patch.
This refresh also includes the following:
- CPUMON - The CPU Monitor tool checks jobs that consume CPU resources above a specified CPU percentage.
- RTVJOBSPLC - The Retrieve Job Spool Count tool will efficiently return the number of spooled files created in a job. This count includes files in FIN state and can be used to compare against the system value QMAXSPLF to see if a job is near the system specified limit.
- It has been a while since refresh R71, so this refresh contains many fixes and enhancements, see the notes for more details.
This refresh supports IBM i 7.2, 7.3, and 7.4. Ordering the refresh is recommended in order to keep your tools up to date.
