Exception updating status for xgrid job
Using suggested above job stream based status file mechanism (via memory mapped filesystem) this functionality can be more or less easily implemented in both cron and via at command.Remote scheduling is really important but with the universal adoption of SSH it can be done on remote computers as easily as on local.Enterprise class schedulers also should be capable of launching jobs on event(s) occurrence, not only based on calendaring functions.For example they should be capable to launch job on file creation, deletion, etc.The latter is just a hidden transfer of files from remote server to the "mothership" achievable via SSH, but still is the functionality that is valued greatly in enterprise environment. All other functions are already implemented on a very high quality level.
Also a central console is badly needed to view and correlate the events that happened on various job streams if there are many of them.Enterprise job scheduling (or as it now often called Workload automation ) is the execution of a series of computer jobs/scripts with additional feedback about the results and ability to resubmit failed jobs, launch jobs in selected sequence depending of previous job ended, etc.Enterprise job schedulers typically provide a graphical user interface and a central console for managing job streams and monitoring of job execution on remote servers including centralized viewing of remote job logs.Increasingly job schedulers are required to be able to perform the event-based job invocation, for example launching job on appearance of disappearance of a particular file in a particular filesystem, or change of characteristics of this filesystem (i.e. The latter capability is close to the litmus test for a modern enterprise scheduler.The term "workload automation" is close to the term "scheduling" and has several distinct meanings: For a brief overview of Windows job scheduler market see Microsoft report Job Scheduling on Windows For large enterprises scheduler should work across different operating system platforms and application environments such as Oracle, SAP/R3, Websphere, etc.
