MAXQUEPRI is a system parameter that determines the highest scheduling priority that can be assigned to jobs entered in batch and output (printer, server, and terminal) queues without the submitter process having OPER or ALTPRI privilege. The value of this parameter can range from 0 to 255; the default is 100. The value of MAXQUEPRI should be greater than or equal to DEFQUEPRI.

MAXQUEPRI refers to relative queue scheduling priority, not to the execution priority of the job.
