JOBTRAC is similar to CA-7: it schedules jobs (across multiple platforms) and allows for those jobs to be scheduled in various ways (by time of day, by completion or failure of other jobs, by a particular day of the month -- for example). CA-11 is a restart management facility. If a job fails, for whatever reason, CA-11 can delete created files, remove generations of GDGs, and otherwise restore the operating environment as it existed when the failed job started. The functionality of JOBTRAC and CA-11 are completely different -- job scheduling versus job restart.
