Can any body explain me in brief about partial roll over and Roll over in Production support ?? When can we go for partial roll over and roll over??
I have seen clues of Force complete in forum but needed bit more explanation. My understanding on Force complete is, You can go for force complete if the job is of low proirity and doesn't cause any disruption to the business and if the job has downstream dependencies. I am new to Production support. Explanations appreciated!!

You are right in your thought process about "Force completion" - may be a little more complete explation would be like:
A job is forced complete when it returns an acceptable condition code, or when it does not require an immediate remedy, and the job stream can continue. Forcing a job complete tells the scheduler to treat the job as having completed successfully, and to continue processing. Any dependencies of this job on other jobs will be posted, and any job triggering by this job will be done.
On the other hand, Canceling a job from the queue does just the opposite. The job will be removed from the scheduler's queue, but no job triggering will be done, and any dependencies of this job on others will not be posted. This command is used to stop a job stream.
PS. However, about "Canceling a job" was not asked but it's worth knowing if you are aksing about "Force Complete".
