Server monitoring software for IBM i
Advanced Job Scheduling
Available in Operations Center Suite (Level 4)
Advanced job scheduling gives you ultimate visibility and control to automate and monitor business-critical events on IBM i servers. Receive alerts when jobs don’t run as expected and easily review job details to help identify what corrective actions to take. Schedule tasks across partitions or systems and make jobs conditional based on the status of other jobs. Run jobs at the best time for your system, operators, and users with custom calendar options.
If you prefer web access instead of a green screen, the modern, browser-based graphical user interface lets you view the latest schedules, track jobs, and spot issues from any internet-enabled device.
