29 Chapter 1. Job Scheduling Console overview The job scheduling console is an interactive interface for creating, modifying, and deleting objects in the product database of Tivoli Workload Scheduler. It also allows you to monitor and control objects scheduled in the current plan. The job scheduling console is part of the distributed architecture, but allows you to work with Tivoli Workload Scheduler on both z/os and distributed engines simultaneously. This chapter describes the overall architecture of Tivoli Workload Scheduler and where the Job Scheduling Console fits into that topology. Tivoli Workload Scheduler architecture This section describes the components, topology and connection of a Tivoli Workload Scheduler. Components A Tivoli Workload Scheduler network is made up of the following types of workstation: Master Domain Manager (MDM) The master domain manager is the topmost domain of a Tivoli Workload Scheduler network. It contains the centralized database files used to document scheduling objects. It creates the Production plan, distributes it to all the agents in the network at the start of each day, and performs all logging and reporting for the network. Fault-tolerant Agent (FTA) A workstation capable of resolving local dependencies and launching its jobs in the absence of a domain manager. Standard Agent A workstation that launches jobs only under the direction of its domain manager. The workstation types can assume the following roles: Parent Domain The domain directly above the current domain. All domains, except the master domain, have a parent domain. All communication to and from a domain is rooted through the parent domain manager. Backup Master A fault-tolerant agent capable of assuming the responsibilities of the master domain manager. Domain Manager The management hub in a domain. All communications to and from the agents in a domain are routed through the domain manager. Backup Domain Manager A fault-tolerant agent capable of assuming the responsibilities of its domain manager. Copyright IBM Corp. 1991,

30 Architecture Host The scheduling function required by extended agents. It can be performed by any Tivoli Workload Scheduler workstation, except another extended agent. Extended Agent A logical workstation definition that enables you to launch and control jobs on other systems and applications. Network Agent A logical workstation definition for creating dependencies between jobs and job streams in separate Tivoli Workload Scheduler networks. Topology Your Tivoli Workload Scheduler topology can be complex or simple according to your job scheduling requirements. Figure 2 shows a single tier hierarchy, where the agents are directly connected to the master domain manager. JSC Master Domain Manager FTAs AIX Linux Windows Solaris Figure 2. Single tier topology Figure 3 on page 5 shows a multi tier hierarchy where the agents are connected to a domain manager at the various tiers of the topology. 4 IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler Job Scheduling Console User s Guide

Multi tier topology The domain manager of domain A acts as the master domain manager for domain C, and the domain manager of domain B acts as the master domain manager for domains D and E. Normally you would connect the Job Scheduling Console to the master domain manager to control your job scheduling activities, but there is no reason why you should not connect to a domain manager or a fault-tolerant agent.

See Table 5 on page 17. The following table describes how to use wtwsconn in the command line to manage connector instances. To do this... Use this command... Create an instance wtwsconn.sh -create [-h node] -n instance -t twsdir Stop an instance wtwsconn.sh -stop -n instance -t twsdir Two stop actions are supported: When -n instance is specified, the instance with that name is stopped. When -t twsdir is specified, all the instances on this node (the node where the script is run) whose TWSdir attribute matches twsdir are stopped. Remove an instance wtwsconn.sh -remove -n instance View the settings of an instance. Change the settings of an instance wtwsconn.sh -view -n instance wtwsconn.sh -set -n instance -t twsdir Customizing the connector where: node Specifies the node where the instance is created. If not specified, it defaults to the node from where the script is run. instance Is the name of the new instance. This name identifies the engine node of the Job Scheduling Console. The name must be unique within the scheduler network. twsdir Specifies the value for the scheduler directory attribute. This is the Tivoli Workload Scheduler installation directory node. Installation scenarios The installation program automatically installs the Tivoli Management Framework server and Job Scheduling Services if they are not detected during installation. If an installation is detected, the installation program verifies the current version and upgrades it, if necessary.

65 Chapter 7. Job Scheduling Console object descriptions This chapter describes the objects of the Job Scheduling Console interface that you use to schedule and maintain jobs. Common objects The following objects are common to both distributed and z/os engines: Workstations Workstations represent the physical or logical nodes where jobs are to be scheduled. Job streams Job streams are a collection of jobs together with their scheduling and dependency definitions. Resources In the Job Scheduling Console, resources are the physical or logical elements that are used by jobs. You define resources in the database prior to defining the jobs that will use them. Jobs A job is an executable process that is controlled by the Tivoli Workload Scheduler. Jobs, their scheduling data, and their dependencies are grouped together in job streams. Distributed engine specific objects The following are objects that are specific to the distributed environment: Workstation Classes A workstation class is a group of workstations. Any number of workstations can be placed in a class. Job streams and jobs can be assigned to run on a workstation class, making replication across many workstations easy. If a job stream is defined on a workstation class, each job added to the job stream must be defined either on a single workstation or on the exact same workstation class that the job stream was defined on. Domains A domain is a named group of Tivoli Workload Scheduler workstations, consisting of one or more workstations and a domain manager acting as the management hub. All domains have a parent domain, except for the master domain. Windows Users When you are running jobs in a Windows environment, you will need to create the user details in the Job Scheduling Console database. Windows users must be defined on the workstation where they log on to the Job Scheduling Console. Calendars A calendar is a list of scheduling dates defined in the scheduler database. Assigning a calendar run cycle to a job stream causes that job stream to be run on the days specified in the calendar. Since a calendar is defined to the scheduler database, it can be assigned to multiple job streams. Copyright IBM Corp. 1991,

66 Distributed specific objects Lists Database Plan Prompts Prompts are used as dependencies for jobs and job streams. A prompt must be answered affirmatively for the dependent job or job stream to launch. For example, you can issue a prompt to make sure that a printer is online before a job that prints a report runs. Parameters Parameters are used to substitute values in jobs and job streams. Since parameters are stored in the Tivoli Workload Scheduler database, all jobs and job streams that use the particular parameter are updated automatically when the value changes. For scheduling, a parameter can be used as a substitute for all or part of: v File dependency path names v Text for prompts v Logon, command, and script file names Files Files are dependencies whose existence a job or job stream must verify before they can start. Lists are filters that allow objects in the database and in the plan to be filtered. There are standard default lists available in the Job Scheduling Console, or you can create lists that are specific to your needs. The scheduler database stores scheduling object definitions. Examples of common scheduling object definitions are: v Workstations v Resources v Job Streams The plan is the master control for the current production day. Object definitions in the database become instances in the current production day plan, where they can be monitored and modified. Examples of common object instances are: v Job Streams v Jobs 40 IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler Job Scheduling Console User s Guide

67 Chapter 8. Job Scheduling Console quick start guide This chapter describes the flow of the tasks that you perform using the job scheduling console, and provides a map between those tasks that are common to both z/os and distributed environments, and those tasks that are unique to each environment. It describes: v Task Types v Task Flows v Task Mapping Task types Definition Management This section describes the task types that you can utilize in the Job Scheduling Console. tasks You use the definition tasks of the Job Scheduling Console to create job streams and jobs, defining their various resources and parameters depending on the type of engine to which they relate: z/os or distributed. The types of resources and parameters vary according to the engine type, and for a clearer view of these differences refer to Task flows. tasks You use management tasks to monitor the status of job streams and make adjustments both in the database and the plan. Task flows Task flows in the Job Scheduling Console can be grouped into definition tasks and management tasks. Definition task flows Figure 6 on page 42 illustrates that the flow of definition tasks depends on the type of environment for which you are creating the jobs. In a z/os environment, you create your job definitions while you are creating or modifying a job stream, but in a distributed environment you should create Windows users (when relevant), parameters, and job definitions before you create your job stream. You can perform the other activities for a distributed definition in the order you prefer, but you should be aware that for your job streams to function correctly you should complete most of the definition tasks.

68 Task flows Defining Creating Workstations Creating Windows Users Creating Parameters Creating Prompts Creating Calendars Creating Domains Creating Workstation Classes Creating Job Streams Creating Job Definitions Creating Resources Creating Object Lists Common tasks Distributed tasks Figure 6. Definition task flows Creating Object Lists in the definition task flow is important, as most of your monitoring activity will be performed using lists. Create object lists before beginning any management tasks. Management task flows Figure 7 on page 43 illustrates that the flow of management tasks depends on the day-to-day work that you will be performing. Figure 6 on page 42 starts with Using Object Lists because you perform most of your management activities using object lists to filter for the objects with which you want to work. Working with plans are listed next because they represent the most frequently used management activities. 42 IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler Job Scheduling Console User s Guide

79 Chapter 10. Creating workstations This chapter describes how to create workstations in the Tivoli Workload Scheduler environment. To create a workstation, perform the following steps: 1. In the Actions list pane, open New Workstation. 2. Select the engine. Creating a z/os workstation The Workstation in Database panel depends on the type of engine: z/os or distributed. The Workstation in Database panel is displayed. The panel consists of the following tabs: Copyright IBM Corp. 1991,

80 Creating a z/os workstation v v General General Resources v Open Time Intervals tab Use the General tab to enter general information for the workstation. Table 14 defines the information necessary to create a workstation. In the Properties section, use Control on servers and Planning on servers to specify how the workstation uses parallel servers. When you create a job, you specify how many parallel servers it requires. The workstation that the job is using must have that number of parallel servers available before the job can run. You set this value when you create the workstation, but you can change it later. Select both Control on servers and Planning on servers so that Tivoli Workload Scheduler submits jobs only up to the limit of the number of servers specified. If you select Planning on servers only, or nothing, then Tivoli Workload Scheduler does not evaluate the number of parallel servers when deciding when to start an operation. In addition, the number of parallel servers is used only for planning purposes, and plans cannot accurately predict the behavior of work in your system, because Tivoli Workload Scheduler submits as many jobs as are ready, regardless of the count of the number of servers in use. Note: At a non STC computer workstation, a parallel server can represent a job entry subsystem initiator. You must allocate at least one parallel server when you define a job. If you select both Control on servers and Planning on servers, or Control on servers only, the number of parallel servers required by the job must also be available on the workstation before the job can be started. Table 14. Properties - Workstation in Database General information In this area... Specify... Information Name A name for the new workstation. This field is required. Description A description of the workstation. Maximum supported length for this field is 38 characters. Workstation type One of the following: General For preparation of jobs and for control of operations that are normally not controlled automatically. Printer For printing. Computer For running jobs and started tasks. 54 IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler Job Scheduling Console User s Guide

81 Creating a z/os workstation Table 14. Properties - Workstation in Database General information (continued) In this area... Specify... Reporting attribute The mechanism for reporting status updates on the jobs defined on the workstation: Manual start and completion If the status change of jobs is reported either from the Ready List ISPF panes on the host, or from the results of a workstation status list. Typically, you should use this reporting attribute for general workstations that are used for job preparation, or for other general workstations if the duration of the task needs to be tracked. Non reporting If jobs on this workstation are set to complete as soon as they become eligible to be started. Typically, you should use this reporting attribute for dummy jobs created to simplify the sequencing of other jobs. Automatic If the status change of jobs is reported automatically, in response to event records created by IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/os. Typically, you should use this reporting attribute for computer and print workstations, or for workstations that specify a user-defined destination. Completion only If the status change of jobs is reported either from the Ready List ISPF panes on the host or from the results of a workstation status list. Typically, you should use this reporting attribute for general workstations that are not used for job preparation. Printout routing The data definition name (ddname) of the daily printout data set where reports for this workstation are to be written. Destination A destination that corresponds to the destination specified on a ROUTOPTS initialization statement. For computer workstations and WTO general workstations, this is the name of the IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/os tracker. The default destination is the system where the engine is started. Properties Control on servers That the number of parallel servers that the jobs use be available on the workstation in order for the jobs to be started. Planning on servers That the number of parallel servers is only for planning purposes and to submit as many jobs as are ready, regardless of the number of servers in use. Chapter 10. Creating workstations 55

82 Creating a z/os workstation Table 14. Properties - Workstation in Database General information (continued) In this area... Specify... Splittable That jobs on the workstation can be interrupted. Use this attribute for a job setup general workstation where you prepare JCL for submission. If the preparation of the JCL is interrupted by the preparer issuing the TSAVE command, the operation is assigned status I. Preparation of the JCL job can continue at a later time. Printer workstations can also be split, but operations on computer workstations cannot be split. Job Setup When using a general workstation to prepare job JCLs or started task JCLs manually before running. This attribute is not necessary if IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/os can resolve all the JCL variables automatically. Started task, STC When using a computer workstation that will run started tasks rather than jobs. WTO When using a general workstation on which the scheduling facilities can issue a write-to-operator message at the operator console designated in Destination. Fault Tolerant The workstation as fault-tolerant. Use fault-tolerant workstations to run distributed jobs in a z/os plan. Fault-tolerant workstations are automatically defined as computer workstation types with an automatic reporting attribute. All the properties for this workstation are disabled and set to their default value. Defaults Transport time The time in HH:MM that the system allows between the end of a predecessor job and the beginning of the present job. The transport time of the workstation is the default transport time for all the jobs defined on the workstation and is used for planning purposes only. Duration The default estimated processing time in HH:MM:SS for all jobs on that workstation. Tivoli Workload Scheduler uses the estimated processing time when creating the plan, to work out a timetable for all jobs. You do not need to give an exact figure, because Tivoli Workload Scheduler can adjust it dynamically using actual durations. However, your estimation should be as accurate as possible. You can override this value by specifying a duration when you create a new job. Access Methods Name The name of the access method that handles the third-party product. Node address The optional TCP/IP address or host name of the fault tolerant agent that is hosting the access method. Port number The optional TCP/IP port number of the tracker agent that is hosting the access method. Resources tab You can define a maximum of two workstations, or fixed resources called Resource 1 (R1) and Resource 2 (R2), to schedule or run jobs on a workstation. 56 IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler Job Scheduling Console User s Guide

83 Creating a z/os workstation When defined, the two resources are associated to the workstation and are recognized automatically when you schedule and run jobs on the workstation. However, they are subject to the following limitations, that in some instances could make it more practical to use logical resources: v The maximum quantity for each resource is 99 v They cannot be shared by other workstations v Their name is limited to two characters R1 and R2 can represent any physical resource in your system, which is significant for scheduling purposes. When you create a new job, you can specify how many workstation resources (R1, R2, or both) the job will use. If the specified quantity of resources is not available, the job will not start. To define the use of each resource: 1. Type a 2-character name in Name if you want to change the resource name. The names R1 and R2 are provided by default. 2. Select Used for planning, if you want the resource to be considered when a plan involving this workstation is built. 3. Select Used for control, if you want the resource to be used when a job runs on this workstation. The plan contains the best estimation of the time operations will start. If an unexpected problem occurs, for example, a job exceeds its expected run time Tivoli Workload Scheduler may need to reassess the start time of some of the operations. If you selected Control on servers, Tivoli Workload Scheduler considers the workstation resource when rescheduling its operations. Otherwise, the workstation resource is ignored. Open Time Intervals tab Use this tab to define the availability of parallel servers on a time-interval basis, the capacity of workstation resources, and the name of an alternate workstation that enables jobs to run on the workstation. 1. To add an open time interval, click Add Row. To delete an open time interval, select it and click Remove Row. 2. After you add a row, you can modify the values by double-clicking under the column header. Table 15 defines the information necessary to create time intervals. Table 15. Properties - Workstation in Database Open Time Intervals information In this column... Specify... Day A day of the week, Standard, or Specific Date (where a calendar pops up from which you select a date). The Standard interval defines the values that are true at all times, with the exception of the additional intervals that you also specify on this page. When you define a new workstation, you find a default Standard row where you enter the name of an alternate workstation and the quantities of parallel servers and of workstation resources that you want to be available on a general basis. Select a day or Specific Date to specify the time intervals when quantities, name, or both are different from Standard. Chapter 10. Creating workstations 57

84 Creating a z/os workstation Table 15. Properties - Workstation in Database Open Time Intervals information (continued) In this column... Specify... Status The availability status of the workstation in the given interval. Select one of the following: Defined To specify that during the interval the workstation is available in the quantities and with the properties defined in the current row. Closed To specify that the workstation is not available during the interval. If you select this value, the remaining cells in the row are disabled. From Time and To Time A time interval in the 12-hour clock format. Parallel Servers The quantity of parallel servers available to the workstation during the time interval. Leave this field blank if you did not specify parallel servers in the General tab. The maximum value is 99. R1 Capacity and R2 Capacity The available quantities for every interval of resources R1 and R2 if you specified that they be used for this workstation in the Resources tab. The maximum value for each resource is 99. Alternate Workstation The name of a workstation of the same type that can be used during the interval if this workstation becomes unavailable. This option is available only for computer workstations and for WTO general workstations. Note: For the best results the configurations of the two workstations should be symmetrical. 58 IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler Job Scheduling Console User s Guide

85 Creating a distributed workstation Creating a distributed workstation The Workstation in Database panel is displayed. Table 16 defines the information necessary to create a distributed workstation. Table 16. Properties - Workstation in Database information In this area... Specify... Information Chapter 10. Creating workstations 59

86 Creating a distributed workstation Table 16. Properties - Workstation in Database information (continued) In this area... Specify... Name The name of the workstation. The name must start with a letter and can contain alphanumeric characters, dashes, and underscores. For non-expanded databases, it can contain up to eight characters. For expanded databases, it can contain up to 16 characters. Note: Workstation names must be unique, and cannot be the same as workstation class and domain names. Node The host name or the IP address of the workstation. Fully-qualified domain names are accepted. TCP Port The netman TCP port number that Tivoli Workload Scheduler uses for communications on the workstation. The default is The port number of netman on a workstation is defined by the localopts file in the parameter nm port. Operating System The operating system of the workstation. Available options are: UNIX Windows Other Domain The name of the domain of the workstation. The name can start with a letter or with a number and can contain alphanumeric characters, dashes, and underscores. For non-expanded databases, it can contain up to eight characters. For expanded databases, it can contain up to 16 characters. The default for fault-tolerant and standard agents is the master domain, usually named MASTERDM. The default for a domain manager is the domain in which it is defined as the manager. The default for an extended agent is the domain of its host. Note: Domain names must be unique, and cannot be the same as workstation and workstation class names. Time Zone The time zone of the workstation. Choose a time zone name from the drop-down list. For a description of time zone names, refer to the IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler Reference Guide. To ensure the accuracy of scheduling times, this time zone must be the same as the computer operating system time zone. The Time Zone field is editable only if the time zone feature is enabled. Description A description of the workstation. The description can contain up to 40 characters. Security 60 IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler Job Scheduling Console User s Guide

87 Creating a distributed workstation Table 16. Properties - Workstation in Database information (continued) In this area... Specify... SSL Communication Which type of Secure Socket Layer (SSL) communication is enabled. Supported values are: Enabled The workstation uses SSL authentication only if a peer workstation requires it. On The workstation uses SSL authentication when it connects with its domain manager. The domain manager uses SSL authentication when it connects to a parent domain manager, and the master domain manager has SSL authentication enabled. However, it refuses any incoming connection from its parent domain manager if it is not an SSL connection. Force The workstation uses SSL authentication for all of its connections. It will refuse any incoming connection if it is not an SSL connection. You can also disable the SSL protocol, by selecting the blank space in the drop-down list. Behind Firewall That a firewall exists between the workstation and its domain manager, and that the link between the domain manager and the workstation is the only allowed link between the respective domains. Secure Port The number of the secure port to be used for SSL communication. The default value is Workstation Type The type of workstation. Select one of the following options from the drop-down list: Fault-tolerant Agent Select this type for an agent workstation that is capable of launching its jobs and resolving local dependencies without a domain manager. Select this type for fault-tolerant agents, domain managers, and backup domain managers. Extended Agent Select this type for an agent workstation that launches jobs only under the direction of its host. Extended agents can be used to interface Tivoli Workload Scheduler with non-tivoli systems and applications. For more information refer to the user manual for the specific extended agent. Standard Agent Select this type for an agent workstation that launches jobs only under the direction of its domain manager. Chapter 10. Creating workstations 61

88 Creating a distributed workstation Table 16. Properties - Workstation in Database information (continued) In this area... Specify... Auto Link Whether to open the link between workstations at startup. For fault-tolerant and standard agents, select this option to have the domain manager open the link to the agent when the domain manager is started. For a domain manager, select this option to have its agents open links to the domain manager when they are started. Auto Link is useful primarily during the startup sequence at the beginning of each day. At that time, a new production plan is created and compiled on the master domain manager, and all workstations are stopped and restarted. For each agent that has Auto Link selected, the domain manager automatically sends a copy of the new production plan and starts the agent. If Auto Link is also selected for the domain manager, the agent, in turn, opens a link back to the domain manager. If Auto Link is not selected for an agent, it is initialized when you run a link action on the agent domain manager or the master domain manager. Full Status Whether the agent is updated with full or partial status. This is for fault-tolerant agents only. When Full Status is selected, the agent is updated with the status of jobs and job streams running on all other workstations in its domain and subordinate domains. If Full Status is not selected, the agent is informed only about the status of jobs and job streams on other workstations that affect its own jobs and job streams. This can improve performance by reducing network activity. Ignore That the scheduler ignores this workstation. This can be used to define workstations before they are actually installed. Resolve Dependencies Whether an agent tracks all dependencies, or only its own. This is for fault-tolerant agents only. When Resolve Dependencies is selected, the agent tracks dependencies for all jobs and job streams, including those running on other workstations. Full Status must also be selected so that the agent is informed about activity on other workstations. If Resolve Dependencies is not selected, the agent tracks dependencies for its own jobs and job streams only. This reduces processing overhead. Server A mailman server on the domain manager to handle communications with the agent. This is for fault-tolerant and standard agents only. Using servers can reduce the time required to initialize agents and improve message efficiency. To specify a server, select a letter or a number (A-Z and 0-9) from the drop-down list. The IDs are unique to each domain manager, so you can use the same IDs in other domains without conflict. If more than 36 server IDs are required in a domain, consider dividing it into two or more domains. If a server ID is not specified, communication with the agent is handled by the main mailman process on the domain manager. When a domain manager starts it creates a separate server for each unique server ID. If the same ID is used for multiple agents, a single server is created to handle their communications. You should define a single server for groups of 8 agents. 62 IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler Job Scheduling Console User s Guide

89 Creating a distributed workstation Table 16. Properties - Workstation in Database information (continued) In this area... Specify... Access Method An access method for extended agents and network agents. This must be the name of a method file that resides in the TWShome/methods directory on the agent host workstation. For a local UNIX extended agent, the method name is unixlocl. For a remote UNIX extended agent the method name is unixrsh. For network agents, the method name is netmth. For more information about extended agents, refer to the individual extended agent user guides. For more information about network agents, refer to the IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler Reference Guide. Host The name of the agent host workstation. This is required for extended agents. The host is the workstation with which the extended agent communicates and where its access method resides. The host for an extended agent must be a master, domain manager, or fault tolerant agent. The host for an extended agent can be specified as $MASTER. This assigns the host as the master domain manager, and is useful if you need to switch masters in the domain. The extended agent automatically connects to the new manager. Notes: 1. The host option is not required for standard agents. The host workstation for standard agents is defaulted to the domain manager. 2. To keep an agent production plan at the same level of detail as its domain manager, select Full Status and Resolve Dependencies. Always select these options for backup domain managers. Chapter 10.

91 Chapter 11. Creating Windows users Creating a Windows user This chapter describes how you create Windows users in a distributed environment. The users for whom Tivoli Workload Scheduler launches jobs must be defined in the database. This configuration step is required for Windows users only. To create Windows users in the database, perform the following steps: 1. In the Actions list pane, click New Windows User. 2. Select the engine. The Properties - Windows User panel is displayed. Table 17 defines the information necessary to create a Windows user. Table 17. Properties - Windows User information In this area... Specify... Information Name The Windows user name. The name can contain up to 31 characters. Notes: 1. Windows user names are case-sensitive. 2. A Windows user must be able to log on to the workstation on which Tivoli Workload Scheduler will launch jobs, and have the right to Log on as batch. 3. If the name is not unique in Windows, it is considered to be a local user, a domain user, or a trusted domain user, in that order. Copyright IBM Corp. 1991,

92 Creating a windows user Table 17. Properties - Windows User information (continued) In this area... Specify... Windows Domain The Windows domain of this user. This field is optional. If the name is not fully qualified (that is, no Windows domain is entered) or is not unique in Windows, it is considered to be a local user, a domain user, or a trusted domain user, in that order. Windows Workstation The name of the Tivoli Workload Scheduler workstation on which the user is allowed to launch jobs. Set Password New Password A new user password as defined on the Windows computer. Confirmation The user password again for confirmation. 66 IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler Job Scheduling Console User s Guide

93 Chapter 12. Creating parameters Creating a parameter This chapter describes how you create parameters for the distributed environment. When using a parameter in a job script, the value is substituted at run time. In this case, the parameter must be defined on the workstation where it will be used. Parameters cannot be used when scripting Extended Agent jobs. Note: Be careful when renaming a parameter because it might be part of a dependency for a job scheduler object in the database. If this is the case, and you rename it, any action you perform that refers to the old name will return an error. To create a new parameter, perform the following steps: 1. In the Actions list pane, click New Parameter. 2. Select the engine. The Properties - Parameter pane is displayed. 3. In Name, type the name of the parameter. The name must start with a letter and can contain alphanumeric characters, dashes, and underscores. The name can contain up to eight characters. 4. In Value, type the value assigned to the parameter. Do not include the names of other parameters. Copyright IBM Corp. 1991,

95 Chapter 13. Creating prompts Creating a prompt This chapter describes how you create prompts for the distributed environment. There are two types of prompt: Ad hoc prompt This is defined within the properties of a job or job stream and is unique to that job or job stream. Predefined prompt This is defined in the Tivoli Workload Scheduler database and can be used by any job or job stream. To create a new prompt, perform the following steps: 1. In the Actions list pane, click New Prompt. 2. Select the engine. The Properties - Prompt panel is displayed. 3. In Name, type the name of the prompt. The name must start with a letter and can contain alphanumeric characters, dashes, and underscores. The name can contain up to eight characters. 4. In Text, type the text of a prompt. The default behavior of a prompt is to display a message and wait for a reply. If the string begins with a colon (:), the message is displayed but no reply is necessary. If the string begins with an exclamation mark (!), the message is not displayed but it requires a reply. You can include backslash n (\n) within the text to create a new line.

97 Chapter 14. Creating calendars This chapter describes how you create calendars for distributed engines. You can create as many calendars as required to meet your scheduling needs. For example: Table 18. Example calendars This calendar... Could contain... PAYDAYS A list of pay dates MONTHEND A list of month ending dates HOLIDAYS A list of your company s holidays The Holidays calendar The freedays calendar Note: The maximum size of the calendars you create and manage depends on the size of your system RAM. For example, the maximum calendar size for a computer with 256 MB RAM is 1000 consecutive days (3 years). If you select a calendar for a job stream that is larger than your RAM can manage, the job stream definition process hangs, and must be stopped. The HOLIDAYS calendar is used to determine non-workdays for the purpose of defining run cycles for your job streams. It also affects the definition of the workdays keyword as follows: workdays=everyday except saturday, sunday and all the dates appearing in the HOLIDAYS calendar Create a HOLIDAYS calendar with the dates of your holidays. Freedays calendars are intended as non-work days, when no scheduling activity is to take place. Freedays calendars extend the role of the HOLIDAYS calendar, as they provide additional flexibility in defining workdays. When defining a job stream, if you decide to use a freedays calendar instead of HOLIDAYS, then the definition of workdays becomes: workdays=everyday except saturday, sunday and all the dates appearing in the specified freedays calendar If you decide to use your own freedays calendar for a job stream, the redefined meaning of workdays is limited to that job stream. A possible scenario is to define more than one freedays calendar to use in your scheduling activity, particularly in the case your enterprise has different international locations, to respond to different non-work day requirements. When you do not specify a freedays calendar for the job stream, then HOLIDAYS is used, if available. Copyright IBM Corp. 1991,

98 Creating calendars Creating a calendar To create calendars in the database, perform the following steps: 1. In the Actions list pane, click New Calendar. 2. Select the engine. The Properties - Calendar panel is displayed. 3. In Name, type the name of the calendar. The name must start with a letter and can contain alphanumeric characters, dashes, and underscores.

Message The text of a recovery prompt to be displayed if the job ends in error. The text can contain up to 64 characters. The recovery prompt is a local prompt and is responded to using the Job Scheduling Console. The status of All Prompts shows the recovery prompts whether they have been asked or not. If a job ended in error, the prompt status is Asked and the message is displayed. If a job successfully ended, the status is Not Asked, and no message appears. Job The name of a recovery job to run if the parent job ends in error. Recovery jobs are run only once for each instance of the parent job ended in error. Workstation The name of the workstation on which the recovery job runs. The name is entered automatically when you select a recovery job. Not all jobs are eligible to have recovery jobs run on a different workstation. Follow these guidelines: v If either workstation is an extended agent, it must be hosted by a domain manager or a fault-tolerant agent that runs in Full Status mode. v The recovery job workstation must be in the same domain as the parent job workstation. v If the recovery job workstation is a fault-tolerant agent, it must run in Full Status mode. Table 22 on page 81 summarizes all possible combinations of recovery options and actions. The table is based on the following criteria from a job stream called sked1: v Job stream sked1 has two jobs, job1 and job2. v If selected for job1, the recovery job is jobr. v job2 is dependent on job1 and will not start until job1 is complete.

If jobr ends in error, intervention is required. If jobr is successful, rerun job1. If job1 ends in error, repeat above. If job1 is successful, run job2. Notes: 1. Intervention is required means that job2 is not released from its dependency on job1, and therefore must be released by the operator. 2. The continue recovery option overrides the abend state, which may cause the schedule containing the job ended in error to be marked as successful. This will prevent the schedule from being carried forward to the next day. 3. If you select the Rerun option without supplying a recovery prompt, Tivoli Workload Scheduler generates its own prompt. 4. To reference a recovery job in conman, you must use the name of the original job (job1 in the scenario above, not jobr). Recovery jobs are run only one per abend. 82 IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler Job Scheduling Console User s Guide

111 Chapter 18. Creating job streams This chapter describes how you create job streams. After you create job streams, you need to edit them before they can be submitted to the daily plan. For information about editing job streams, see Chapter 24, Managing job streams, on page 161. To create a new job stream, perform the following steps: 1. In the Actions list pane, click New Job Stream. 2. Select the engine. The Job Stream panel depends on the type of engine: z/os or distributed. Creating a job stream for a z/os engine The Properties Job Stream panel is displayed. Copyright IBM Corp. 1991,

112 Creating z/os job streams Table 24 defines the information necessary to create a job stream. Table 24. Properties - Job Stream panel for z/os In this area... Specify... Information Name A name for the job stream or template. Note: The name, valid date, and status uniquely identify each job stream or template. You can define up to four job streams and job stream templates that share the same name but have different valid dates. Description A description of the job stream or template. Owner The name of the person responsible for the job stream or template. Owner description Information for contacting a person for assistance when the job stream does not complete according to the plan. Template A new job stream template. A job stream template contains run cycles but no jobs. All job streams defined as belonging to a template inherit the run cycles defined for the template. Is Active The job stream schedule. Do not select this until you have added all the jobs, specified dependencies, and created a run cycle. Inherits from template The name of the template if you are defining a job stream that belongs to a job stream template. The job stream is scheduled using the template run cycle information. Contains Monitored Job Whether any jobs in this job stream are monitored by Tivoli Business Systems Manager when they run. The value is Yes if Is Monitored Job is selected in the properties pane of one or more of the jobs in the job stream. This field is read-only. Authority group name A name to be used to generate a RACF resource name for authority checking. This information is optional. Calendar The name of the calendar of workdays and freedays, including holidays, that you associate to the job stream. If you leave this field blank, the scheduler uses the calendar specified in the initialization parameter CALENDAR during startup of the TCP/IP server. Note: The calendar that you specify here is used to display the run days of the job stream in the Run Cycle view of the Job Stream Editor. It is not necessarily the calendar that is used to determine the actual run days of the job stream instances that are generated. Priority The priority of job stream compared to other jobs streams. The lowest priority is 1 and the highest priority is 9. When job streams are competing for resources, a job stream with a priority of 3 will run before a job stream with a priority of 1. This value is not definitive. Other factors, such as resource and workstation dependency, are considered in determining priority. This field does not apply to job stream templates. Valid Date From The time period covered by the job stream. You can specify only the From date. Click the small calendar button to select a valid From date. You can create several job streams with the same name but with different From dates. The scheduler selects the correct version for the day being planned. To A To date of 12/31/2071 is automatically assigned. 86 IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler Job Scheduling Console User s Guide

113 Creating z/os job streams Note: The IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler ISPF main pane, option 1.8, allows you to create a job stream containing a single job by specifying only the name of the JCL associated with the operation. This option is not available in the job scheduling console. To create job streams with a single job, you must follow the steps in this chapter. Click OK. Table 25.

This information is required. Description A brief description of the job. Auto hold release To release the job when it is not submitted by Tivoli Workload Scheduler and is in HOLD status. The job is released when all dependencies are satisfied and the requested resources are available. Auto hold release is the default. Auto error completion To mark the job ended-in-error (E) if an error occurs when it runs. Auto error completion is selected by default. If you clear it, the job is marked complete (C) when it ends, regardless of the outcome. Critical job To define the job as a critical job. This makes the job eligible for Workload Manager (WLM) service class promotion when the job runs late. Monitored Job That the running of this job is to be monitored by Tivoli Business Systems Manager. 88 IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler Job Scheduling Console User s Guide

115 Creating z/os job streams Table 27. Properties - JCL Job General information (continued) In this area... Specify... Cancel if late To prevent the job from being started if it is late (according to the time dependencies specified in the Time Restrictions page). Note: Select this option only for time-dependent jobs (time-dependent jobs must have an earliest start time and a deadline specified on the Time Restrictions page). Auto job submission To start the job automatically or to issue a WTO message (when all dependencies have been satisfied and all required resources are available). Auto job submission is selected by default. Deadline WTO To issue an operator message if the job passes its deadline. The message is also written to the message log. Centralized script That the script associated to the job resides on the domain master. WLM policy The WLM policy applied for WLM service class promotion when this job is late if you selected Critical Job. Possible values are: Conditional The scheduler uses an algorithm to determine whether to apply the Deadline or the Latest start option. Deadline The scheduler intervenes if the job runs beyond the deadline. Latest start The scheduler intervenes immediately if the job starts after the latest start time. Highest acceptable return code Long duration The scheduler intervenes if the job takes longer than it should as compared to the statistics that it keeps. The highest acceptable return code from any step in the job before the job is set to ended-in-error (E) status. If you leave this field blank, IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/os uses the value specified in HIGHRC in the initialization parameter JTOPTS. Restartable Whether to restart the job if the related workstation becomes inactive. Possible values are: v Yes: Restarts the job from the beginning on the alternate workstation (if one was defined), or on this workstation when it becomes active again. v No: Restarts the job, even if it overrules the installation default in the WSFAILURE or WSOFFLINE parameters of the JTOPTS initialization statement. v Default: Uses the installation default action specified in the OPRESTARTDEFAULT keyword of the JTOPTS statement. This is selected by default. Chapter 18. Creating job streams 89

116 Creating z/os job streams Table 27. Properties - JCL Job General information (continued) In this area... Specify... Reroutable Whether to make the job eligible to be rerouted if its workstation becomes inactive. This option applies to the job only when it is in ready (R) or waiting (W) status. Possible values are: v Yes: Makes the job reroutable. v No: Makes the job not reroutable. v Default: Takes the installation default action specified in the OPREROUTDEFAULT keyword of the JTOPTS statement. This is selected by default. Restart and Cleanup Specify which data set and job restart actions must be performed if the job ends in error. This option is not available for fault-tolerant workstations. Possible values are: v None: No cleanup and restart actions are performed. This is the default. v Immediate: Data set cleanup is performed immediately if the job ends in error. This option is not linked to a restart, which must be initiated separately. The operation is treated as if it had the Automatic option selected when it is rerun. v Automatic: A data set cleanup is inserted automatically as the first step to be performed during the rerun of the failed job. This is the preferred method of running restart and cleanup. v Manual: Restart and cleanup actions are to be initiated manually from the Modify Current Plan ISPF dialog. Expanded JCL That the JCL used for step-level restarts and, optionally, job reruns, should not be the JCL contained in the scheduler libraries but the JCL image captured from the JESJCL sysout data set. This is the default and recommended option. Use Sys Out That user sys out data sets should be used for job restarts. Feedback options The scheduler automatically monitors the actual durations of jobs. It can use these durations to modify the estimates in the application description (AD) database. Possible values are: v Smoothing factor: A number, from 0 to 999, that determines how much a measured duration changes existing values in the AD database. If a measured duration is outside the limit set by Limit for feedback, the smoothing factor is not applied and the AD database is not updated. v Limit for feedback: A number, from 100 to 999, to set the limit within which measured values are regarded as acceptable. A measured value outside the limit is ignored. No smoothing factor is applied and the AD database is not updated.

Extended task name A descriptive name for the job. Maximum supported length is 54 characters. Time Restrictions tab: In the Time Restrictions tab, specify the period of time that the job is allowed to run and the amount of time the job requires. Table 29 defines the information necessary to define the time restrictions for the job. Table 29. Properties - JCL Job Time Restrictions information In this area... Specify... Start: Specify the time at which the job can start. No restrictions To run the job as soon as all dependencies are met. No time restrictions can result in more efficient processing for certain jobs when extending a plan. In this way, they are run as soon as dependencies are satisfied. Note: This choice is not valid if you selected Cancel if late in the General tab. Follow job stream rules That the earliest time the job can start is when the job stream starts. This is the default. Note: This choice is not valid if you selected Cancel if late in the General tab. Specify earliest start time Deadline A specific time before which the job should not start. Then: 1. In At, type a time according to your locale settings. For example, type 12:00 if you do not want the job to start before noon. 2. In Delay for days, type a number of days to defer the start time. For example, if you type 3, the job starts three days after the time you originally specified in At. Specify deadline The latest time that the job can end. Use At and Delay for days.

118 Creating z/os job streams Resources tab: In the Resources tab, describe the parallel servers, and the logical and workstation resources that the job uses. In the procedure, you perform the following actions on target resources and logical resources that you access from the drop-down list: Target resources Where you specify the workstation (or fixed) resources, and the parallel servers, that the job needs to run. Logical resources Where you specify the logical and physical resources that the job needs to run 1. Click the arrow next to Target resources. Columns are displayed where you can specify the target resources. 2. Double-click each cell in the Quantity column to edit the amount of resources (Resource 1 and Resource 2) that are required by the job. Do the same for parallel servers. 3. Click the arrow and select Logical resources. Columns are displayed where you can specify the logical resources. 4. Click Add row for each resource you need to assign to the job. 5. Type the name of the resource. If you do not know it, use... (find) to search for it. 6. For each logical resource, double-click under the next three columns to edit the following attributes: Quantity Specify the amount of the resource needed by the job. Access type Specify whether the job needs shared or exclusive access to the resource. Keep on error Specify whether the job keeps or frees the resource when it fails. You can also specify to use the default defined in the ONERROR keyword of the RESOPTS statement. The default value is FREESR. When you have finished, click OK to save your changes and close the window. The new job is displayed as an icon in the Graph view of the job stream editor. The name of the job is made up of the name of the task with which the job is associated and by the job identifier. You can drag and drop the icon to position it. Repeat the steps in this section to create as many jobs as you need. Note: You can use the slider, positioned on the left margin of the Graph view, to zoom in and zoom out the jobs displayed. When you move the slider downwards to zoom out of the Graph view, the job buttons change their appearance, changing color depending on the job type. Creating dependencies between jobs When you create dependencies, you link jobs in a sequence. A successor job cannot begin until the predecessor job is complete. Dependencies determine when the successor job runs, even if the successor job has time restrictions. 92 IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler Job Scheduling Console User s Guide

119 Creating z/os job streams For example, to print bank account statements, you must first subtract withdrawals from an account (Job A) before you calculate the account balance (Job B). Job A is the predecessor and Job B the successor. Creating dependencies within a job stream To create a dependency between jobs within the same job stream, perform the following steps: 1. In the Graph view of the job stream editor, click Add Link. 2. Click the predecessor job and drag the link to the successor job. A line is displayed between the two jobs, with an arrow pointing to the successor job. 3. Repeat the previous steps to create as many dependencies as you need. Creating dependencies between job streams External jobs represent jobs that are part of other job streams. You create a dependency between jobs in different job streams by creating a dependency on an external job. For example, if Job C in the Accounts job stream depends on Job B in the Reports job stream, you create an external job in the Accounts job stream to represent Job B, then you create a dependency between Job C and the external job. This section describes one way to add an external job to a job stream. Another method, based on the use of job stream lists, is described in Using the copy function to add an external job on page 165. To create a dependency between job streams, perform the following steps: 1. In the Job Stream Editor Graph view, click Add Dependency on External Job. The Properties - External Job panel is displayed. 2. In Job Stream, type the name of the job stream containing the external job. 3. Click Show Jobs. The jobs in the job stream are displayed. 4. Select a job and click OK. An icon for the external job is displayed in the Graph view. 5. Repeat the steps explained in Creating dependencies between jobs on page 92 to define links with the other jobs. Scheduling job streams After creating the jobs and defining any existing dependencies between them, you specify the scheduling information for the job stream using run cycles. Run cycles are generated from a combination of the following information: v A calendar of workdays and freedays. The calendar is defined in IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/os. You specify its name in the Job Stream Properties panel (see Creating a job stream for a z/os engine on page 85). v The validity date of the job stream, which you specify in the Job Stream Properties panel. Chapter 18. Creating job streams 93

120 Creating z/os job streams Types of run cycle You can create two types of run cycle: v v Offset-based Uses a combination of user-defined periods and offsets. For example, an offset of 3 in a period of 15 days is the third day from the beginning of the period. It is more practical to use offset-based run cycles when the cycle is based on cyclic periods. Rule-based Uses rules based on lists of ordinal numbers, types of days, and common calendar intervals or period names. For example, the last Thursday of every month. Rule-based run cycles are based on conventional periods, such as calendar months, weeks of the year, and days of the week, or periods that you define, such as a semester. You can specify multiple run cycles when you create a job stream, and you can add new ones afterwards. You can also mix rule-based and offset-based run cycles. Both types of run cycles can be either inclusionary or exclusionary. Inclusionary run cycles specify the days that the job stream must run. Exclusionary run cycles specify the days that the job stream must not run. You can add run cycles to generate more days, or to have multiple instances on the same day. You can add exclusionary run cycles to exclude some of the days already generated. Creating a run cycle To create a run cycle, in the job stream editor, click Run Cycle. The Run Cycle view is displayed. Table 30. Run cycle buttons If you are going to use... Click...

General tab: Table 31 defines the information necessary to define the run cycle details. Table 31. Run Cycle General information In this area... Specify... General Name A name for the run cycle. Note: Offset-based run cycles take the name of the period specified in the Offsets page. See Creating offset-based run cycles on page 99. Description A description of the run cycle. Exclusionary run cycle If the run cycle keeps the job stream from running. 94 IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler Job Scheduling Console User s Guide

121 Creating z/os job streams Table 31. Run Cycle General information (continued) In this area... Specify... Rule for freedays How you want IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/os to treat freedays when calculating the rundays of the job stream, by selecting one of the following: Count workdays only Excludes freedays when calculating on which days the job stream runs. This is the default for offset-based run cycles. Schedule on last workday before freeday Counts both workdays and freedays. If the runday falls on a freeday, it is shifted to the closest workday before the freeday. Schedule on next workday after freeday Counts both workdays and freedays. If the runday falls on a freeday, it is shifted to the closest workday after the freeday. Count workdays and freedays alike Counts both workdays and freedays. The job stream is scheduled on the runday, regardless whether it is a freeday or a workday. This is the default for rule-based run cycles. If freeday, do not schedule at all Counts both workdays and freedays. If the runday falls on a freeday, the job stream is not scheduled to run. JCL variable table A name of the variable table that the scheduler can use on the days generated by this run cycle. Alternatively, click the ellipsis (...) to search for a variable table name. Valid Date From, To An interval of time for which the run cycle applies. Click the calendar buttons next to each field to select dates using pop-up calendars. The intersection between this valid date and the valid date you defined in the Job Stream Properties pane is the interval during which the job stream is actually scheduled. Time Restrictions tab: Table 32 defines the information necessary to define the time restrictions. Table 32. Run Cycle Time Restrictions information In this area... Specify... Start At The time when the job stream must start. The default is 00:00 of the scheduled day. Deadline At The time for the job stream to stop. Delay for days A number of days after the start of the schedule. The default is no deadline time. Chapter 18. Creating job streams 95

122 Creating z/os job streams Note: If you are creating an exclusionary run cycle, be sure to match the time restrictions of the run cycle that it is excluded. Rules tab: Table 33 defines the information necessary to create the rules on which the run cycle is based. Table 33. Rule-based Run Cycle Rules information In this area... Specify... Periods Week, Month, Year, or User-defined (a period that you have defined in the scheduler) periods. You can set more than one period at a time for complex rules specifying more cycles. For example, you can set Week and Month, and then choose the days that apply to both rules. You do not need to select the same days twice, since they are applied automatically to all cycles. Ensure that the period you select is also highlighted so that the other options in the tab are enabled. The period that you select affects the number of days listed in the Available days scroll-list. The In the following group changes depending on the period you select. Frequency Only Select this if the rule applies to only one day in the specified period. The rule does not repeat within the period. For example, Only last Monday in Month schedules the job stream to run on the last Monday of the month. Every Select this if the rule is used to calculate more than one day within the period. For example, Every last Monday in Month schedules the job stream to run on every Monday in the month, since this rule generates a series of Mondays starting from the last Monday. Note: Every first day yields the same rundays as Every day. Shift origin If you use Every, you can shift the origin of the run cycle by the number of days you set in Shift origin. You shift the origin of the run cycle with respect to the default origin, which is Monday in the Week period, and the first week with at least 4 days in the Month and Year periods. You can also shift the origin from the end, if you specify a combination of Every and ordinal-last days. Available days The days of the period to which the rule applies. The number of available days changes according to the period you select. You can also specify ordinal-last days to count backwards from the end of the period. The days you select are displayed in the Selected Days field. Available types of days The types of days to which the rule applies. The types of days you select are displayed in Selected Types of Days. In the following... The period names to which you want the rule to apply. Depending on the period you select (Week, Month, Year, User-defined), this option displays lists of weeks of the year by number, or months by name. If you selected a user-defined period, a list of available periods is displayed in the In the following Periods group. Select the check box next to the period you want to use. 96 IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler Job Scheduling Console User s Guide

127 Saving a job stream After you have specified job stream properties and defined jobs, job dependencies, and run cycles, you can save the job stream. Job streams are saved in the scheduler database. To save the new job stream, click Save in the job stream editor toolbar. The Job Stream Editor checks for any missing or invalid information, then saves the job stream in the application description database. Note: You can save a job stream from any of the three views available in the job stream editor. You can define parts of a job stream, for instance the jobs that are in it, then save it and open it again later, as explained in the next chapter, to define its run cycles. If this is the case, do not mark it as active until it is ready to be scheduled. Creating a distributed job stream The Job Stream panel is displayed. Creating z/os job streams Chapter 18.

128 Creating distributed job streams General tab Table 35 defines the information necessary to create the general characteristics of the job stream. Table 35. Job Stream Properties General information In this area... Specify... Information Name The name of the job stream. The name must start with a letter, and can contain alphanumeric characters and dashes. Maximum supported length is 16 characters. The name of a job stream cannot be changed after it has been saved. However, you can use the create another command to save the job stream with another name. This field is mandatory. Workstation The name of the workstation or workstation class on which the job stream is launched. If you specify a workstation class, it must match the workstation class of any jobs or resources used in the job stream. This field is mandatory. Description A description of the job stream. Priority The priority of the job stream. Type a priority value or click: Hold Sets the priority to 0. High Sets the priority to 100. Go Sets the priority to 101. Possible priority values are 0 through 101, where 101 is the highest priority. A priority value of zero prevents the job stream from launching. For High and Go, all jobs in the job stream are given the priority. High and Go jobs are launched as soon as their dependencies are satisfied, overriding the workstation job limit, but not overriding the job stream job limit or the workstation job fence. Limit The number of jobs that can be running at the same time in the schedule. Possible values are 0 through If you specify a job limit of 0, no jobs are launched in the job stream. Options On Request That the job stream is selected for running on request. If you select On Request and specify run cycles for the job stream, the On Request flag is ignored and the job stream runs according to the run cycle. For more information, refer to the IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler Reference Guide. Carry Forward That the job stream is eligible to be carried forward to the next day production plan if it is not completed before the end of the current day production day. Job streams that are carried forward retain the carryforward option and, therefore, can be carried forward again. You can control the number of days a job stream is carried forward by specifying a deadline time (UNTIL keyword) plus x number of days. Monitored Job Stream That the entire job stream must be monitored by Tivoli Business Systems Manager (TBSM) when it runs. 102 IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler Job Scheduling Console User s Guide

Specifying run cycles for a job stream Run cycles specify when a job stream in the database is to run in the plan. Combinations of run cycles are used to include and exclude certain dates. There are the following types of run cycle: v Simple Run Cycles Based on specific calendar dates. v Weekly Run Cycles Based on days of the week. v Calendar Run Cycles Based on predefined calendars. For details about creating calendars, see Chapter 14, Creating calendars, on page 71. You specify run cycles for a job stream using the Run Cycle view of the job stream editor. To display the Run Cycle view, select Run Cycle from the View menu in the job stream editor or click Run Cycle in the toolbar. See Figure 9 on page 98. Inclusionary or exclusionary run cycles When you define a run cycle, you must specify if it designates the days when the job stream is to run (inclusionary) or when the job stream is not to run (exclusionary). The days you mark in an inclusive run cycle are displayed as Days Included in the list of run cycles applied to the job stream. The days you mark in an exclusive run cycle are displayed as Days Excluded in the list of run cycles applied to the job stream. Excluded days always take precedence over included days. For each job stream, you can define as many inclusive and exclusive run cycles as you want. Rule for freedays This rule is based on the definition of freedays. Freedays are non-workdays, such as holidays or weekends, and can be defined in one or more specific calendars. Freedays calendars can in other terms be considered the list of non-workdays when there is no activity in your enterprise. For details, see The freedays calendar on page 71.

149 Chapter 19. Creating resources Creating a z/os resource Resources represent the physical or logical objects that are used by jobs. You can use resources to prioritize access to a data set or to limit the number of simultaneous file transfers on a particular network link. Before a job can use a resource, you must create it specifying the associated workstations and attributes. To create a resource, perform the following steps: 1. In the Actions list pane, click New Resource. 2. Select the engine. The Resource in Database panel depends on the type of engine: z/os or distributed. The Resource in Database panel is displayed. The panel consists of the following tabs: v Resource Resource v Default Workstations v Availability Intervals tab Use the Resource tab to enter general information about the resource you are creating.

Information Name A name identifying the resource. The name is converted to uppercase. Description A description of the resource. Hiperbatch Whether the resource is a data set eligible for Hiperbatch. Hiperbatch is a host performance enhancement that works with the Data Lookaside Facility (DLF) to enable batch jobs and started tasks to share access to data sets. Group ID A name of up to eight characters that identifies a group to which the resource belongs. The group ID can be used as a list filter for selecting subsets of resources. Used for How the resource is to be used. Possible values are: v Planning v Control v Planning and control v Neither planning nor control On error The action to take when a job that allocates this resource ends in error, and does not have an overriding keep-on-error specification in the job definition: Free Free the full allocation of this resource, both exclusive and shared. Keep Keep the full allocation of this resource. You may want critical jobs to keep their resources even when they fail, to avoid having to wait for resources when the job is restarted. Free if exclusive Free the full exclusive allocation of this resource. Free if shared Free the full shared allocation of this resource. Assume System Default Use the default specified in the ONERROR keyword of the RESOPTS statement. The default value is FREESR. Default Is Available Whether the resource is usually available. You can specify on the Availability Intervals tab when the resource is not available for a particular workstation.

155 Chapter 21. Creating lists This chapter describes how you create and maintain database and plan lists. When you create a list, you give it a name and specify the filtering criteria. When you run a list, it displays a filtered table of objects. Each list you create is represented by an icon in the tree view. There are two types of lists that you can create and work with: database lists and plan lists. There are also default plan and database lists provided, and common plan and database lists that relate to both the z/os and the distributed environments.

Creating a group of lists The Job Scheduling Console allows you to organize your lists into groups. You can organize your groups of lists by any criteria that help you to quickly display the objects that you want to work with. For example, you can create a group gathering lists that enable you to work with all the objects associated with a particular plan. First you must create a group, then you can create the lists that comprise it. You can create a group of lists within an engine or within the default lists available for each engine. To create a group of lists, perform the following steps: 1. In the Work with engines panel, right-click on the scheduler engine switch and select Create Group. The Properties - Group of Lists panel is displayed. 2. Enter a name for the group. You can use the same name for more than one group. Different groups maintain their individual properties even if they have the same name. The maximum supported length for this field is 80 characters. 3. Create the lists contained in the group as described inchapter 21, Creating lists, on page 129. Creating default common plan lists This section describes how you create default common plan lists. Creating a common list of job stream instances To create a common job stream instance list, perform the following steps: 1. In the Work with engines pane, right-click Common Default Plan Lists and select Job Stream Instance. 2. The Properties - Job Stream Instance Common List panel is displayed. The fields in this dialog are a subset of the fields available in Properties - Job Stream Instance List described in Creating a job stream instance list for z/os engines on page 141.

Specify any of the available search parameters or combinations of two or more parameters. If you leave all fields blank, all the common job stream instances are displayed when you open the list. Use the Engine pull-down menu to specify which engines are used when creating the list. By default, all the engines to which the Job Scheduling Console is connected are selected. Use the Column Definition tab to define the columns displayed in the list. You can use the Properties panel for each scheduler engine to set or change the defaults for lists. To do this: 1. In the Work with engines pane, right-click a scheduler engine and select Properties in the pop-up menu. The Properties panel is displayed. 2. Open the Settings tab and make your adjustments. Periodic refresh Type the number of seconds after which a list display will refresh. After you do this, this information is used every time you click Apply defaults in the properties window of a list. This information is also automatically displayed in editable form in the Periodic Refresh Options group of the properties window of each new list you create. Buffer size for lists Select a value from the drop-down list. The value determines at which rate the results of a list are sent onto your screen. For example, if you select 100, the results of a list are sent in blocks of 100 lines. The default value is 250. If you select a higher number, it takes more time to display the list initially, but less time to display the entire list when it is scrolled. The highest supported value is 400. Select Engine Time Zone Specify the time of the engine time zone displayed in the Submit Job Stream panel in the Start and Deadline sections. This check box is not selected, by default, and this means that if the engine is in a time zone different from yours, and you start a submission at a certain time, the engine will perform the submission at the time indicated in the Engine Time Zone box, no matter what is the time at your location. If the Select Engine Time Zone check box is selected, the time you will see in the Start and Deadline sections is referred to that of the engine that starts the operation, and the job stream submission will be performed at the selected time. This is valid only if no run cycle is active on the engine. Chapter 21. Creating lists 151

178 Setting list properties The value of the engine time zone can be verified in the Scheduler Information tab in the format GMT +/ n, where n is the number of offset hours from GMT. Note: To see the Engine Time Zone check box in the Settings page and the Engine Time Zone and Code Page values in the Scheduler Information tab properly, you must have the Job Scheduling Console Version 1.3 Fix Pack 2 or later installed, as well as the Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/os Connector Version 1.3 Fix Pack 2 or later. Further, the z/os engine must have the required UQ79631 PTF applied. 152 IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler Job Scheduling Console User s Guide
