Question
Is there a way to collect reports to a CA View database from more than one JES spool?

Answer:
If JES spool is not shared between systems, but the catalog where a View database is mentioned is shared, then there can be a View SARSTC task run on one system and SARFSS tasks run on the other systems, pointing to the same database.

With a FSS task, a virtual printer is defined to the task, and the task is started and stopped with the starting and stopping of the printer.    

The FSS task can collect reports (via the virtual printer WS=(...) values), using one of or a combination of the following criteria:

 . CLASS    (WS=Q)
 . PRMODE   (WS=PRM)
 . ROUTECDE (WS=R)
 . FORMS    (WS=F)
 . WRITER   (WS=W)
