Designed to simplify unattended operations, automate operator functions, and control job output distribution. Jobs can be automatically run based on a rich set of schedule definitions, the completion of other jobs, or the status of system objects. Administrators and operators can be notified via message queues or through a pager product.
The Job Scheduler plug-in allows you to define and manage your scheduled jobs with a graphical interface to time and date definitions along with many other job properties. With the plug-in you can also define control information, like work days, holiday calendars, and pager product interfaces.
