HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

Scheduling and submitting job streams for IBM InfoSphere DataStage jobs

You schedule HCL Workload Automation IBM InfoSphere DataStage jobs by defining them in job streams.

See Scheduling and submitting jobs and job streams for more information about how to schedule and submit jobs and job streams using the various interfaces.

After you define an HCL Workload Automation IBM InfoSphere DataStage job, you add it to a job stream with all the necessary scheduling arguments and submit it. After submission you can kill the HCL Workload Automation for IBM InfoSphere DataStage job if necessary, this action is converted in a Stop action for the IBM InfoSphere DataStage job.

If the HCL Workload Automation agent becomes unavailable when you submit the job or while the job is running, HCL Workload Automation collects the job log when the agent restarts and assigns the Error or ABEND status to the HCL Workload Automation job, independently of the status of the job in IBM InfoSphere DataStage.

For information about monitoring jobs and job streams, see Monitoring HCL Workload Automation jobs.

For information about analyzing the job log, see Analyzing the job log.
