Find the execution frequency of the job.

Post by Ramnath » Sun May 29, 2016 8:23 pm

Hi,

How can we know the execution frequency of the job? We use CA-7 but we don't have access to it. I looked in the SAR also to knwo the if the job executes weekly or daily but many a times there are job which would not follow any pattern. For such jobs is there really a way to identify the job frequency?

Talk to your CA-7 support group.  They have job execution information available easily in CA-7.  Other possible sources are the system log (which may have restricted access), and the SMF data (which almost all sites restrict access to).  There is little that an application programmer can do, depending on the site, to find out this kind of information -- that's why you need to talk to your site support group and / or CA-7 support group.

Also, note that CA-7 allows a job to have multiple schedids (schedule ids) so it could be set to run weekly except during the last week of the month, when it runs daily. Stuff like this you need to find out from your CA-7 support group.
