Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/OS







Abstract: It is very typical for a scheduler to create normal run-cycles indicating when an application (one or more jobs) is to be added to the schedule. However, it is not as typical for a scheduler to create run cycles indicating when an application is not to be scheduled. IBM's Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/OS (TWSz) offers the ability to create "negative" run cycles indicating when an application is not to be scheduled. This scheduling technique combined with normal, or positive, run cycles can address unique scheduling requirements. This paper is intended for TWSz schedulers to revisit this feature and provides examples where this technique can be useful.
