Autosys Quick Reference Introduction to Autosys: AutoSys is an automated job control system for scheduling, monitoring, and reporting. These jobs can reside on any AutoSys-configured machine that is attached to a network. An AutoSys job is any single command, executable, script, or Windows batch file. Each AutoSys job definition contains a variety of qualifying attributes, including the conditions specifying when and where a job should be run. Autosys Jobs: Job Types and Structure : There are three types of jobs: command, file watcher, and box. As their names imply, command jobs execute commands, box jobs are containers that hold other jobs including other boxes , and file watcher jobs watch for the arrival of a specified file.

Once testing is done with AutoSys one should change the default refresh interval for AutoSys. This is so there is less querying to the DB. Default behavior for stdout is to always appends. For example, if you have a number of jobs that run daily at a. However, a variety of account processing jobs with diverse starting conditions should not be grouped in the same box. For a description of how to override this behavior, see Box Job Attributes and Terminators on page Be aware that placing jobs in a box to achieve this end may bring with it undesired behavior due to the nature of boxes.
You will most likely find that the default behavior of boxes inhibits the expected execution of the jobs you placed in the box. Likewise, you should not place jobs in a box solely because you want to run reports on all of them. When you run autorep on a box, you will get a report on the box and all the jobs in the box unless you use the -L0 option. In addition, if you use wildcarding when specifying a job name, you could get duplicate entries in your report.
Because of this, jobs in boxes do not retain their statuses from previous box cycles. Then each job is analyzed for additional starting conditions. All jobs with no additional starting conditions are started, without any implied ordering or prioritizing. Note o Jobs in a box cannot start unless the box is running. However, once the job starts running, it will continue to run even if the box is later stopped for some reason.
Time Conditions in a Box Each job in a box will run only once per box execution. Therefore, you should not define more than one time attribute for any job in a box because the job will only run the first time. If you want to put a job in a box, but you also want it to run more than once, you must assign multiple start time conditions to the box itself, and define no time conditions for the job.
Remember also that the box must be running before the job can start. Do not assign a start time for a job in a box if the box will not be running at that time. If you do, the next time the box starts the job will start immediately.
The following example illustrates a scenario that would not work properly if placed in a box. A change of status of the box could trigger the start of downstream jobs that are dependent on the box. If a box contained only one job, and the job changed status, the box status would change. Share this:.
Testing: zql -U autosys -P autosys NOTES: When a job is stuck in the starting condition this means that the event processor communicated with the remote agent and passed all the information the remote agent ran the job but was not able to communicate to the DB. Once testing is done with AutoSys one should change the default refresh interval for AutoSys. This is so there is less querying to the DB. Default behavior for stdout is to always appends. For example, if you have a number of jobs that run daily at a. However, a variety of account processing jobs with diverse starting conditions should not be grouped in the same box. Default Box Job Behavior Some important rules to remember about boxes are: Jobs run only once per box execution.

Remote Agent: The Remote Agent is a process triggered by the event processor to execute a task on remote machine I. Event Processor: Event Processor is a crucial component. It reads and processes all the events from the autosys database tables event server This process can be a window service or unix. Event Processor will scan the database events continuously. Also environment variable passed as profile in JIL script. Command job: The name itself suggests, i.
