JMS/3000 Job Scheduling System

Now it's no longer necessary to keep an HP 3000 operator in your computer room. JMS/3000 automatically schedules the operation of unattended Hewlett-Packard 3000 computer systems. This lets you more efficiently utilize your personnel, while you enjoy the many benefits that JMS/3000 provides.

JMS/3000 is a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use software tool that lets you completely control the batch environment on the HP 3000. JMS/3000 manages all batch jobs - both submitted and streamed.

You can use your HP 3000 more productively and cost effectively by directing it to do most regularly scheduled projects during non-peak hours. And as part of the HP Plus program, JMS/3000 has earned the trust and confidence of hundreds of HP users.


JMS/3000 provides virtually unlimited flexibility in scheduling controlling any type of job. It lets you control production job schedules for any date and time, including holidays and weekends. It also allows jobs to repeat at specified time intervals. You can suspend or modify schedules at any time and jobs will be automatically rescheduled according to your changes. User date files may be used for jobs that do not run on a predictable basis.

Key Benefits Include:

  • Retrieval of user's jcl file each cycle enabling you to incorporate changes
  • Centralized operator procedures
  • Schedule displayed in order of job execution, or in any order you specify
  • Full job dependency control to enforce job sequencing
  • No schedule definition language to learn
  • Allows users to submit jobs days, weeks or months in advance
  • Users can submit job schedules without involving the operations staff
  • Combination of date parameters may be used to create a complex schedule
  • End of month
  • Select day of the month
  • Select day of the week
  • Select work day of the week
  • Select work day of the month
  • Holidays
  • +/- offsets


JMS/3000 automatically runs multiple jobstreams concurrently with full job and schedule dependency control. Keeps track of all dependencies, eliminating costly reruns due to jobs running out of sequence.

Additional features include:

  • Automatic job restart and recovery. (Whenever a job fails, a recovery job can be initiated immediately.)
  • Insertion of passwords and user-defined parameters. (Jobs are pre-processed before they are initiated. MPE passwords are automatically inserted or replaced. Previously defined parameters can be inserted, eliminating the need to frequently change the job.)
  • Total flexibility in altering a job status or job queues
  • No changes required in existing jcl files
  • STDIN files for streamed jobs can be copied - enabling you to recover them in case of system failure
  • Jobs that are executing can have their current job step displayed
  • Users are notified when a job completes or aborts
  • Independent production queues are allowed for specific users or applications
  • Operator prompts are available
  • Processes multiple queues
  • Optional STDLIST analysis
  • Easy to use UDC commands to insert ad hoc jobs
  • Job card macro replacement
  • Queue assignment control
  • Remote console control
  • On condition command files


Exactly Define Your System

You can restrict the maximum number of jobs that can execute at the same time. Combinations of restrictions may be assigned. For example, you could restrict COBOL compiles to a maximum of two at a time, but restrict it to one if a MRP program was executing.
Restriction Types:

  • Logon
  • Program execution
  • UDC access
  • File access
  • Resource
  • File status (empty, not empty)

All the UDC commands will be checked for file and run statements. By restricting conflicting jobs from processing at the same time, it reduces I/O and CPU contention. This improves your system's speed and response time, and boosts productivity.
You can display or alter restrictions at any time.


Optional version

The networking option is designed for installations with multiple CPUs. JMS can submit a job from any CPU to any other CPU on the network. It provides complete tracking of submitted jobs across CPUs. Individual CPU control is maintained for certain controls, such as the job fence. This allows maximum flexibility for job management on a networking system. With full inter-CPU job dependency, you can have jobs from one CPU dependent on schedules from another CPU.
