HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4


About this task

A key to choosing how to set up HCL Workload Automation domains for an enterprise is the concept of localized processing. The idea is to separate or localize the enterprises’s scheduling needs based on a common set of characteristics.

Common characteristics are things such as geographical locations, business functions, and application groupings. Grouping related processing can limit the amount of interdependency information that needs to be communicated between domains. The benefits of localizing processing in domains are:

  • Decreased network traffic. Keeping processing localized to domains eliminates the need for frequent interdomain communications.
  • Provides a convenient way to tighten security and simplify administration. Security and administration can be defined at, and limited to, the domain level. Instead of network-wide or workstation-specific administration, you can have domain administration.
  • Network and workstation fault tolerance can be optimized. In a multiple domain HCL Workload Automation network, you can define backups for each domain manager, so that problems in one domain do not disrupt operations in other domains.
