SM37 - background job delay
In the output list of SM37, what exactly is the "Delay"? Is it a delay from when the job was scheduled to run to when it actually ran? Is it the amount of time that the job was waiting for something or other at various moments during execution? Or a combination of the previous two?
Our system is very quiet, but the majority of background jobs have a delay of up to a minute. There are plenty of background jobs and often these jobs are the only ones running at the time.
Curious to know what's going on here.
