Introduction:

How to focus on one job that is running in the Multi-User Facility (MUF).

Background:

When you have a job that is running in a busy MUF, it has always been a hassle trying to get frequent status updates on that one job.

Environment:
z/os, CA Datacom/DB 14.0 and Sysview 13.9 and above.
Instructions:

1)    1- You can issue a Modify console command of /F DBMUFxx,COMM STATUS or you can run a batch DBUTLTY job with COMM OPTION=STATUS.  With either one you get similar results on everything running in that MUF.
