Hi,

I wanted to know is there any job scheduling utility in M/F.

For example, in my production system my jobs are like this..
..some jobs should run daily at 12:00 PM
....some jobs should run on week ends
......some are bi-weekly, ..some are monthly..quarterly..and yearly..

How to schedule these jobs in Mainframe environment..
Is there any utility.. to do the automation.

There is a third party product called CA-7 Schedular from Computer Associates thru which you can schedule Jobs as your intension.

You can also code TIME parameter properly in your Jobcard to run the job at a particular time, particular day and time (but you have to change your jobcard after every run to accomodate next run).

Please give us some more information regarding your requirement.

Regards,
Sandip.

hello,

job scheduling package is certainly installed at your installation (shop)
ask sysprog what it is. (CA7 OPC CA scheduler, APM whatever).
You may also create your own basic scheduling thing (REXX or COBOL may help here).

never heard of this use of the time parm on a jobcard...
to me it is the time (how long) the job is allowed to run

HI

even i agree with you BLUEBIRD.actually time parameter is used to give time limit to your job,i.e like a constraint.

also ZEKE AND ZEBB is used for job sceduling i hope.

Hi,

There is also a product called jobtrac. I worked on it previously i hope it is from Serena Networks. icon_idea.gif

For example if you have 8 jobs : A1,B2,C3,D4,E5,F6,G7 & H8.




SCHDDAIL
A1 1200 + B2 =MTWTFSS
B2 1200 - A1 =MTWTFSS

SCHDWEEK
C3 1400 =....F..
D4 1500 =......S

SCHDMONT
E5 ASAP =**/12/**
F6 0200 =**/02/**

SCHDYEAR
G7 ASAP =02/04/**
H8 1500 =12/20/**

SCHDMSTR
SCHDDAIL 1100 =MTWTFSS
SCHDWEEK ASAP =....FS.
SCHDMONT ASAP =**/02/**
=**/12/**
SCHDYEAR ASAP =02/04/**
=12/20/**


See that A1,B2 are daily jobs executing from schedule SCHDDAIL. c3 & D4 are weekly jobs which get loaded from schedule SCHDWEEK. E5 & F6 are monthly jobs getting loaded from SCHDMONT. G7 & H8 are yearly jobs getting loaded from schedule SCHDMSTR. See that the right most portion of the job you will find when the job executes, day/week/year it executes also if it has any successors/predecessors etc.

Everything is taken care by SCHDMSTR where it will load daily the schedule when exactly the schedule time comes up as u can see SCHDMSTR. I hope u can make out from above how easy is it by automation. Along with this there are a lot of features offered which makes life simpler.

If any more info can mail me....... 8)
