To run a Log Master job, you must have the proper authorization.

Displaying the status of a job

Restarting a job
You can rerun or re-execute Log Master jobs, but you cannot restart them.
Log Master supports a type of processing referred to as ongoing processing. Use this type of job to repeatedly run the same set of log processing. Log Master saves information about each run of the job in the Repository, and succeeding jobs can begin processing where the previous job ended. Log Master supports the RERUN and USE keywords to re-execute previous runs of ongoing jobs.
