If you refer back to my first blog on the Introduction to Prestart Jobs, you’ll recall the term “Program start request” comes from the original SNA use of prestart jobs and this terminology is still used. The program start requests section summarizes wait information for the incoming client requests as well as the number of requests accepted and rejected.
