Resolve that using MailStream Plus on IBMi platform (AS/400) Should you clean up the UPCPJB Job History File?

MailStream Plus (MSP) - IBMi (AS/400) Should you clean up the UPCPJB Job History File?

The UPCPJB Job History file is where MSP keeps track of changes that are made to existing jobs and parameters, and adds new jobs.
The file can grow in size to what some may think of as large (with thousands or possibly even millions of records.)   Only the last several entries for each job is used.  A customer asked how to clean it up of the old no-longer-used records?

1)
Each record is small (~277 bytes.)
The file is only used when editing parameters, and once when a job is being ran, so the size of the file does not slow down processing.

2)
We do *not* recommend or support customers try to clean up the file.  Just let it continue to be used as-is.
