bpdbjobs -report -all_columns -stay_alive

This gives you a raw output, go to this link:;

for an explanation of the raw.

If you use the Java interface and you have the activity monitor open, do a
bpps and you will find bpdbjobs with this stay_alive switch.

Does anyone know of a method to us the bpdbjobs command in like a unix "tail
-f" mode, where you can continually monitor jobs being run, etc.

Does this command have a man page? I've looked in the System Admin manual
and the options are not documented well.
