This is not the only job scheduling software available in the market, there are other applications available. AutoSys is used for defining, scheduling and monitoring jobs. These jobs can be a UNIX script, java program or any other program which can. AutoSys is the most versatile tool if compared to it’s competitor. Moreover, it’s licensing costs more due to the agility of the tool and the product comes with ERP .

AutoSys is used for defining, scheduling and monitoring jobs.

These jobs can be a UNIX script, java program or any other program which can be invoked from shell. Before starting we assume that user has already setup an AutoSys environment. This environment consists of autosys server and autosys client. The event server is a AutoSys database which stores all system information and events as well as all job, monitor, and report definitions.

Sometimes this database is also called as a data server, which actually describes a server instance. That is, it is either a UNIX or Windows process, and it is associated data space or raw disk storagethat can include multiple databases or tablespaces.

This is schesuler component of the autosys system. This processes all the events it reads from dataserver. It schedules and starts jobs. When you start the event processor it continually scans the database for events to be processed. When it finds one, it checks whether the event satisfies the starting conditions for any job in the database.

On a UNIX machine, the remote agent is a temporary process started by the event processor to perform a specific task on a remote client machine. On a Windows machine, the remote agent is a Windows service running on a remote client machine that is directed by the event processor to perform specific tasks.

The remote agent starts the command specified for a given job, sends running and completion information about a task to the event server, then exits. If the remote agent is unable to transfer the information, it waits and tries again until it can successfully communicate with the database. Below is the diagram which jov the basic functionality, please check the explanation.

The event processor scans the event server for the next event to process. If no event is ready, the event processor scans again in five seconds.

The event processor reads from the event server that an event is ready. If the event is a STARTJOB event, the job definition and attributes are retrieved autsys the Event Server, including the command and the pointer full path name on the client machine to the profile file to be used for the job. In addition, for jobs running on Windows machines, the event processor retrieves from the database the user IDs and passwords required to run the job on the client machine. The event processor processes the event.

If the event is a STARTJOB, the event processor attempts to establish a connection with the remote agent on the client machine, and passes the scheduleg attributes schedulet the client machine.

On a UNIX machine, the inetd invokes the remote agent. The remote agent sends an acknowledgment back to the event processor indicating that it has received the job parameters. The socket connection is terminated. At this point, the event processor resumes scanning the event server database, looking for events to process. The remote agent starts a process and executes the command in the job definition. The client job process runs to completion, then returns an exit code to the remote agent and quits.


There are various parameters to define autosys job. Starting from profile, timezone, start time, starting condition and so on. There are the two methods you can use to create job definitions: Using this you can instruct autosys to save echeduler definitions. This information saved in autosys database. You can also create a jil file which contains job definition. You can then pass this jil file to autosys. Essential attributes for defining job 1. Name used to identify the job.

The job type is one of job types: The job owner specifies whose user ID the command will be run under on the client machine. This attribute is automatically set to the user who invoked jil or the GUI to define the job, and cannot be changed except by the edit superuser. The command attribute can be the name of any command, executable, UNIX shell script or batch file, and its arguments.

This attribute specifies the client machine on which the command should be run. The days of the week attribute specifies the days on which scueduler job should be run.

Autosys is from CAYou will not get any freeware or evaluation edition of autosys. But you have do the autosys features in CRON by writing your own components like autosys.

Hi, This Site is nice. I am having a doubt.

Autosy there is a box job A which is in Success state,and the customer asked to Forcestart the job. And a suggestion is in your next edition if you can explain about Box Job Logic and the scenarios…. It will be very useful to all the people like me……. Ojb I was not able to respond you on time. To answer your qn, if you want to create and manage autosys job there are different ways in my post I have already given different ways.

And those are very effective.

As per my understanding there is no such java API to create these jobs, but yes you can easily create one API which will read job spec and create autosys job accordingly. Hi Krishna, When we create a job as a part of Autosys box then the job status schrduler depends on box status.

If you start a box that will make all of the jobs inside box active that means ready to run. These jobs will start as per their start condition.


If we take the example that you have given, then job A is in running condition which is force started assuming A is box namejob B is in status Success because it completed successfully, and remaining jobs C,D,E are in active state because autpsys are part of the Box which is in running state.

Now when you kill the box the active jobs becomes inactive because they are part of the Autosys box which was killed. This is not permitted. Although you can set following status.


We had problem with one of our autosys jobs, even though the conditions sfheduler met the job did not start. Could someone advise what the problem would be.

Apart from starting conditions does it have any job dependencies. If yes then can you chk if the dependent jobs schwduler to success if no can you paste the jil over here. I have a question regarding mutually exclusive conditions. There are two sets of jobs around 12 in each set that need to be run in mutually exclusive mode.

Can I define a box for each set and set the condition of not running at the box level? Hi, I am trying to validate the jil file programmatically. I plan to use the SDK provided by Autosys. What is Jil syntax checker or Jil verifier or Jil validator? Where is it available in autosys? But i was enable to create a database while installation. I have sql server sp4 and autosys is 4. How can you perform batch testing using autosys. Hi…I want to configure the dual event server in autosys and configure the event processor and install the remote agent.

Please let me know how to define the priority for the job. Thanks Sathiya and Murthy. If yes please provide syntax for it. I ahve one question: I have 2 jobs, job A and JOb B. Job B will start on success of JOb A. I can remotely login and execute my job. In the JIL i have mentioned owner: Can any one tell me how to generate a.

Is there any method in autosys jil definition to run same job at different times on different days? Yesyou could do that in two ways. Changing the job definition using GUI.

Also in the JIL what des max run time, Min run time before alarm and terminate job if run time exceeds xyz hours means? Is it possible to change the status of an autosys job based on a return status code obtained from the command that the autosys job executes.

So can we change the autosys job status to SU if status code returned is 0, and FA if errno. I currently have autosys submitting jobs to a peoplesoft server residing on one machine. I have now added a second peoplesoft server residing on a different machine.

Is there a way to have autosys submit a job to either machine based on the fact that one or the other is down. I did notice in the command parms that only the first machine name is entered. Is there a way to put both machine names in so that it checks both servers to see if they are available and sends work to the one that is. This site was helpful, Thanks so much… Could you please upload any video tutorial when you have some time, this will be much more useful.
