  • Review module output, check error messages and make scheduling changes.
  • Easily check where jobs are in the queue.
  • Via an Operator request, change run-time settings if needed.
  • Provide an historical record of batch executions for two years.
A developer can:
  • Automate the scheduling of processes (modules) by combining the the requests for multiple processes into a single request-able unit (chain).
  • Provide automated and/or manual parameter settings for modules.
  • Pre-schedule modules and/or chains based upon calendars.
  • Pre-schedule modules and/or chains to run at regular internals.
  • Schedule the execution of modules and/or chains based upon the existence of data.
  • Setup parameter validation so job parameters can be validated at the time of submission in stead of at the time of execution.
  • Submit multiple requests or set up a job stream for overnight processing.
  • Check error codes and dynamically change the execution of processes.
  • Set and enforce complex dependencies between modules and/or chains.
