In JCL..for TIME Parameter was specified both JOB & STEP..which one is overrides..

Answer / vidhya

If time parameter is specified on both job and exec the
smallest of the one is taken.

eg:
//job1 job time= 3
//step1 exec pgm=pgm1, time = 1
//step2 exec pgm=pgm2, time = 1

Step1 can take max of 1 min and step 2 can take max of 1
min. So the total time taken by 2 steps cannot be greater
than 2 mins even if the time on job card is 3 mins.

//job1 job time= 2
//step1 exec pgm=pgm1, time = 1
//step2 exec pgm=pgm2, time = 2

if step1 runs for 0.75 mins, then step 2 can take max of
1.25 mins. Bcoz the total time taken by both the steps
should not exceed 2 mins as the time on job card is only 2
mins.


On the whole, the time taken by each job step should not
exceed the time given for that step and also the total time
taken by all the steps should not exceed the time given for
that job.
