HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

Global options - detailed description

This section gives full descriptions of the global options managed by optman:

approachingLateOffset | al
Approaching late offset. Used in workload service assurance. The critical start time of a job in the critical network is the latest time that the job can start without causing the critical job to finish after the deadline. In most cases, a job will start well before the critical start time so that if the job runs longer than its estimated duration, the situation does not immediately become critical. Therefore, if a job has not started and the critical start time is only a few minutes away, the timely completion of the critical job is considered to be potentially at risk.
The approachingLateOffset option allows you to determine the length of time before the critical start time of a job in the critical network at which you are to alerted to this potential risk. If a job has still not started the specified number of seconds before the critical start time, the job is added to a hot list that can be viewed on the Dynamic Workload Console.
Note: To qualify for addition to the hot list, all time and follow dependencies must have been resolved.

This option is only active if enWorkloadServiceAssurance is set to yes.

The default is 120 seconds.
Note: Whatever value you set for this option, if HCL Workload Automation loses the connection with its database, the default value is applied to critical job processing, and the warning message AWSJCO135W is issued to tell you what has happened.

Run JnextPlan or restart the WebSphere Application Server (stopappserver and startappserver) to make this change effective.

auditHistory | ah
Audit history period. Used in audit management. This setting applies only when the auditStore option is set to db. Enter the number of days for which you want to save audit record data. Audit records are discarded on a FIFO (first-in first-out) basis.

The default value is 180 days. This option takes effect immediately.

For more information about auditing, see Auditing facilities.

auditStore | as
Type of store to be used to log database and plan audit records. Enter one of the following:
file
To specify that a flat file in the TWA_home/TWS/audit/database directory is used to store the audit records. This is the default value.
db
To specify that the HCL Workload Automation database itself is used to store the audit records.
both
To have audit records logged in both the file and the database.
The default value is both. Any change of this value is effective immediately.
Note: When you upgrade the master domain manager from a previous release, the default value for this global option is changed. The default value is now both. The reason for this change is to support the auditing feature which introduces reporting, versioning and rollback functions for database objects. If you customized the default value in the previous release, the value is overwritten with the new value with the exception of the auditStore option with the DB value assigned. If the auditStore option was set to DB, this value is maintained and is not overwritten.

For more information about auditing, see Auditing facilities.

baseRecPrompt | bp
Maximum prompts after abend. Specify the maximum number of prompts that can be displayed to the operator after a job abends.

The default value is 1000. Run JnextPlan to make this change effective.

bindUser | bu
User for binding to remote jobs from shadow job. Specify the user ID that is used to bind a shadow job to a remote job during the security check for "cross dependencies". This user must be given at least the following authorizations in the security file:
  • Display access to the job and schedule objects that need to be bound
  • List access to job objects that need to be bound
However, the ID does not need to be in the user registry of the engine, nor have a password, as it is only required for authorization purposes.

The default value is the TWS_user. Any change of this value is effective immediately.

carryStates | cs
Carry job states. A preproduction option that affects the operation of the stageman command. Specify the jobs, by state, to be included in job streams that are carried forward. Enclose the job states in parentheses, double quotation marks, or single quotation marks. Commas can be replaced by spaces. The valid internal job states are as follows:
Table 1. Valid internal job states
abend abenp add bound done error exec
fail hold intro pend ready rjob sched
skel succ succp suppr susp wait waitd
Some examples of the option are as follows:
carryStates="abend,exec,hold,intro"
carryStates='abend,exec,hold,intro'
carryStates="abend, exec, hold, intro"
carryStates='abend, exec, hold, intro'
An empty list is entered as follows:
carryStates=null

The default value is null, which corresponds to selecting all states. Run JnextPlan to make this change effective.

companyName | cn
Company name. Specify the name of your company. The maximum length is 40 bytes. If the name contains spaces, enclose the name in double quotation marks ("). If you use the Japanese-Katakana language set, enclose the name within single or double quotation marks.

Run JnextPlan to make this change effective.

deadlineOffset | do
Deadline offset. Used in workload service assurance. Used to calculate the critical start of a critical job in the case where a deadline has not been specified neither for the job nor its job stream. In this case the deadline is defaulted to the plan end date and time, plus this offset, expressed in minutes.

This option is only active if enWorkloadServiceAssurance is set to yes.

The default is 2 minutes.
Note:
  1. Important: When the plan is extended, the start time of critical jobs with a deadline calculated with this mechanism is automatically changed as a consequence of the fact that it must now match the new plan finishing time.
  2. Whatever value you set for this option, if HCL Workload Automation loses the connection with its database, the default value is applied to critical job processing, and the warning message AWSJCO135W is issued to tell you what has happened.

Run JnextPlan or restart the WebSphere Application Server (stopappserver and startappserver) to make this change effective.

deploymentFrequency | df
Rules deployment frequency. Used in event rule management. Specify the frequency, in minutes, with which rules are to be checked to detect if there are changes to deploy. All active rules (active rules have the isDraft property set to no in their definition) that have been changed or added since the last deployment are deployed.

Valid values are in the 0-60 minutes range. If you specify 0, the changes are not deployed automatically and you must use the planman deploy command.

The default value is 5 minutes. The change is effective immediately.

enAddUser | au
Enable the automatic user addition into the Symphony file. This option enables the automatic addition of a user into the Symphony file after you create or modify the user in the database. If you specify "yes", the user is automatically added to the Plan. If you specify "no", the user is not automatically added to the Plan.

The default value is "yes". Changes to this parameter are effective immediately.

For more information about how to use this feature, see "HCL Workload Automation: User's Guide and Reference".

enAddWorkstation | aw
Enable the automatic dynamic agent workstation addition into the Symphony file. This option enables the automatic addition of a dynamic agent workstation into the Symphony file after you created the dynamic agent workstation in the database. If you specify "yes", the dynamic agent workstation is automatically added to the Plan. If you specify "no", the dynamic agent workstation is not automatically added to the Plan.

The default is "no". Changes to this parameter are effective immediately.

For more information about how to use this feature, see HCL Workload Automation: User's Guide and Reference.

enCarryForward | cf
Enable carry forward. A preproduction option that affects the operation of the stageman command. Specify if job streams that did not complete are carried forward from the old to the new production plan (Symphony). Enter yes to have incompleted job streams carried forward only if the Carry Forward option is enabled in the Job Scheduler definition. Enter all to have all incompleted job streams carried forward, regardless of the Carry Forward option. Enter no to completely disable the Carry Forward function. If you run the JnextPlan -for 0000 command and the Carry Forward option is set to either yes or no, a message is displayed informing you that incompleted job streams might not be carried forward. When the stageman -carryforward command is used, it overrides enCarryForward. See HCL Workload Automation: User's Guide and Reference for more information. If this option is set to no, running jobs are moved to the USERJOBS job stream.

The default value is all. Run JnextPlan to make this change effective.

enCentSec | ts
Enable centralized security. In the classic security model, determine, how the security file is used within the network. Centralized security is not relevant to an end-to-end scheduling environment.

If set to yes, the security files of all the workstations of the network can be created and modified only on the master domain manager. In this case, the HCL Workload Automation administrator is responsible for their production, maintenance, and distribution.

If set to no, the security file of each workstation can be managed by the root user or administrator of the system. The local user can run the makesec command to create or update the file.

See HCL Workload Automation: User's Guide and Reference for more information about centralized security.

The default value is no. Run JnextPlan to make this change effective.

Note: This option does not apply to role-based security model.
enCFinterNetworkDeps | ci
Enable carry forward for internetwork dependencies. A preproduction option that affects the way stageman handles internetwork dependencies. It specifies if external job streams are carried forward from the old to the new production plan (Symphony file). Enter yes to have all external job streams carried forward. Enter no to have no external job streams carried forward.

The default value is yes. Run JnextPlan to make this change effective.

enCFResourceQuantity | rq
Enable carry forward resource quantity. A preproduction option that affects the way stageman handles resources. Enter yes to carry forward the resource quantity from the old production file to the new. Enter no to not carry forward the resource quantity. Stageman carries forward resource quantities only if the resource is needed by a job or job stream that is also being carried forward. Otherwise the resource quantities are set to the original value. See HCL Workload Automation: User's Guide and Reference for details on using this feature.

The default value is yes. Run JnextPlan to make this change effective.

enDbAudit | da
Enable auditing on information available in the database. Enable or disable auditing on information available in the database. To enable auditing on information available in the database, specify 1. To disable auditing on information available in the database, specify 0. Auditing information is logged to a flat file in the TWA_home/TWS/audit/database directory, to the HCL Workload Automation database itself, or to both. To choose which, set the optman property auditStore. Each HCL Workload Automation workstation maintains its own log. Only actions are logged, not the success or failure of the action. Installation of dynamic domain managers and agents is not recorded in audit logs.
The default value is 1. Changes to this parameter are effective immediately.
Note: When you upgrade the master domain manager from a previous release, the default value for this global option is changed. The default value is now 1. The reason for this change is to support the auditing feature which introduces reporting, versioning and rollback functions for database objects. If you customized the default value in the previous release, the value is overwritten with the new value.

For more information about auditing, see Auditing facilities.

enEmptySchedsAreSucc | es
Job streams without jobs policy. Specify the behavior of job streams without any jobs. If set to yes, the job streams that contain no jobs are set to SUCC after their dependencies are resolved. If set to no, the job streams are left in READY status.

The default value is no. Run JnextPlan to make this change effective.

enEventDrivenWorkloadAutomation | ed
Enable event-driven workload automation. Enable or disable the event-driven workload automation feature. To enable, specify yes. To disable, specify no.

The default value is yes. Run JnextPlan to make this change effective.

enForecastStartTime | st
Enable forecast start time. Only applicable when workload service assurance is enabled (see enWorkloadServiceAssurance). Enter yes to enable the calculation of the predicted start time of each job when running a forecast plan: this option is recommended if you want to take advantage of the enhanced forecast capability that calculates the start time of each job considering the estimated duration of its predecessor jobs. Enabling this feature could negatively impact the time taken to generate the forecast plan. Enter no to disable the calculation of the predicted start time of each job when running a forecast plan.

The default value is no. Any change of this value is effective immediately.

When this option is set to yes, the enPreventStart global option is ignored during the creation of forecast plans.

enLegacyId | li
Enable previous job stream ID. Determine how job streams are to be named when operating in mixed environments with versions of HCL Workload Automation older than version 8.3, managed by a version 8.5 master domain manager. This option is not supported by the Self Service catalog, which ignores it even if its value is set to YES.Use this option to keep consistency in identifying the job streams in the plan. The value assigned to this option is read either when the production plan is created or extended, or when submitting job streams in production using conman.

When the plan is created or extended, if this option is set to no, the Job Scheduler instance is assigned a new ID following the normal mechanism of HCL Workload Automation. In the Symphony file, the Job Scheduler name is equal to this ID. If the option is set to yes, the Job Scheduler instance is assigned an ID (symphony ID) equal to the Job Scheduler name. In the Symphony file the Job Scheduler name is equal to the real Job Scheduler name. If more instances of the same Job Scheduler are present, an ID is generated for every instance, with an alias that starts with the Job Scheduler name.

The default value is no. Run JnextPlan to make this change effective.

enLegacyStartOfDayEvaluation | le
Evaluate start-of-day. Specify how the startOfDay option is to be managed across the HCL Workload Automation network. If you set this option to yes, the startOfDay value on the master domain manager is converted to the local time zone set on each workstation across the network. If you set this option to no, the startOfDay value on the master domain manager is applied as is on each workstation across the network. This option requires that the enTimeZone option is set to yes to become operational.

The default value is no. Run JnextPlan to make this change effective.

enListSecChk | sc
Enable list security check. Control the objects in the plan that a user is permitted to list when running a query on the Dynamic Workload Console or a conman show <object> command. If set to yes, objects in the plan returned from a query or show command are shown to the user only if the user has been granted the list permission in the security file. If set to no, all objects are shown, regardless of the settings in the security file.
Note: Setting this option to yes affects how the graphical user interfaces function for the users defined in the security file.

The default value is no. Run JnextPlan to make this change effective for the plan. For the database, this option takes immediate effect.

enLogonBatch | lb
Automatically grant logon as batch. This is for Windows jobs only. If set to yes, the logon users for Windows jobs are automatically granted the right to Logon as batch job. If set to no, or omitted, the right must be granted manually to each user or group. The right cannot be granted automatically for users running jobs on a backup domain manager, so you must grant those rights manually.

The default value is no. Run JnextPlan to make this change effective.

enPlanAudit | pa
Enable plan auditing. Enable or disable auditing on information available in the plan. To enable auditing on information available in the plan, specify 1. To disable auditing on information available in the plan, specify 0. Auditing information is logged to a flat file in the TWA_home/TWS/audit/plan directory. Auditing information is logged to a flat file in the TWA_home/TWS/audit/database directory, to the HCL Workload Automation database itself, or to both. Each HCL Workload Automation workstation maintains its own log. For the plan, only actions are logged in the auditing file, not the success or failure of any action.

For more information about auditing, see Auditing facilities.

The default value is 1. Changes to this parameter are effective immediately.
Note: When you upgrade the master domain manager from a previous release, the default value for this global option is changed. The default value is now 1. The reason for this change is to support the auditing feature which introduces reporting, versioning and rollback functions for database objects. If you customized the default value in the previous release, the value is overwritten with the new value.
enPreventStart | ps
Prevent job stream without "at" dependency from starting. Specify if job streams without an at dependency are to be prevented from starting immediately, without waiting for the run cycle specified in the Job Scheduler. Valid values are yes and no.

The default value is yes. Run JnextPlan to make this change effective.

When the enForecastStartTime option is set to yes, this option is ignored during the creation of forecast plans.

enRetainNameOnRerunFrom | rr
Retain rerun job name. A production option that affects the operation of Batchman, the production control process of HCL Workload Automation. Its setting determines if jobs that are rerun with the Conman rerun command retain their original job names. To have rerun jobs retain their original job names, enter yes. Enter no to assign the rerun from name to rerun jobs.

The default value is no. Run JnextPlan to make this change effective.

enRoleBasedSecurityFileCreation | rs
Enable the role-based security model. This option enables the automatic creation of the security file using the role-based security model. You define the role-based security model in the master domain manager database by using the Manage Workload Security interface from Dynamic Workload Console or the composer command-line program.

The default value is no, which means that the role-based security model is not enabled for your installation. You continue to use the classic security model that allows you to update your security file by using dumpsec and makesec commands from the command line.

At any time, specify yes if you want to enable the role-based security model and replace your current security file. A new security file is created and updated with the security objects (domains, roles, and access control lists) that you define in the master domain manager database by using the Manage Workload Security interface from Dynamic Workload Console.

For more information about how to use this option, see Configuring user authorization (Security file).

Changes to this parameter are effective immediately.

enSSLFullConnection | sf
Enable the SSL full connection. Specify that HCL Workload Automation uses a higher level of SSL connection than the standard level. For full details see Configuring full SSL security. Valid values are yes to enable the SSL full connection or no to disable the SSL full connection.

When you buy HCL Workload Automation, license usage is calculated based on the number of successful jobs you run and the related information is processed on the server you specify in this option. Copy and paste the ID provided in the mail confirming your license.

The default value is null because it must be specified by the user. This option takes effect immediately.

licenseServerUrl | lu
License server URL The URL of the license server which processes license usage information. When you buy HCL Workload Automation, license usage is calculated based on the number of successful jobs you run and the related information is processed on the server you specify in this option. Copy and paste the URL provided in the mail confirming your license.

The default value is null because it must be specified by the user. This option takes effect immediately.

logCleanupFrequency | lc
Log cleanup frequency. Used in event rule and audit management . Specify how often the automatic cleanup of log instances is run. Valid values are in the 0-60 minutes range. If you specify 0, the automatic cleanup feature is disabled.

The default value is 5 minutes. This option takes effect immediately.

logHistory | lh
Log history period. Used in event rule management. Enter the number of days for which you want to save rule instance, action run, and message log data. Log instances are discarded on a FIFO (first-in first-out) basis.

For example, specify 40 to apply a weighting factor of 40% to the most recent job run, and 60% to the existing average. See HCL Workload Automation: User's Guide and Reference for more information about how to use this option.

The default value is 10. Run JnextPlan to make this change effective.

longDurationThreshold | ld
Long duration job threshold. Specify, when comparing the actual duration of a job to the estimated duration, the threshold over which the job is considered to be of "long duration." The threshold value is expressed as a percentage with respect to the estimated duration. For example, if the threshold is set to 150, and the actual duration is more than 150% of the estimated duration (it is 50% greater), the job is considered to be a "long duration" job.

If you have the workload service assurance feature enabled, the effect of a "critical" job satisfying the long duration criteria is that the job is inserted automatically into the hot list.

Valid values are between:
100
The minimum value. All jobs that exceed the estimated duration are considered long duration jobs
1000
The maximum value. Only those jobs that last ten times as long as their estimated duration are considered as long duration jobs
The default is 150.

The default is 14 days. Run JnextPlan to make this change effective.

minLen | ml
Minimum preproduction plan length. Specify the minimum length in days of the preproduction plan that can pass after the production plan is created or extended, without extending the preproduction plan. If the days left in the preproduction plan after a JnextPlan are less than the value of this option, the preproduction plan is automatically extended. The value for minLen must be less than or equal to the value for maxLen and must be in the range of 7 to 365.

The default is 8 days. Run JnextPlan to make this change effective.

notificationTimeout | nt
Notification timeout. Used in cross dependencies. Specify how many days HCL Workload Automation must retry sending notifications about job status changes to the remote engine if the notification fails. When this timeout expires, the job request subscription and the status notifications associated to this job are discarded.

Changes to this parameter are effective immediately.

oslcRegistryUser | ru
User connecting to the Registry Services. Used in OSLC integration to register the HCL Workload Automation service provider in the Registry Services.

Changes to this parameter are effective immediately.

promotionOffset | po
Promotion offset. Used in workload service assurance. Specify when a job become eligible for promotion in terms of the number of seconds before its critical start time is reached. Applies only to jobs that are flagged as critical in a job stream definition and to their predecessor jobs. A critical job and its predecessors make up a critical network.

When a predecessor jeopardizes the timely completion of the critical job, it is promoted; that is, it is assigned additional resources and its submission is prioritized with respect to other jobs that are out of the critical network. Also critical jobs might be promoted.

The scheduler calculates the critical start time of a critical job by subtracting its estimated duration from its deadline. It calculates the critical start time of a critical predecessor by subtracting its estimated duration from the critical start time of its next successor. Within a critical network the scheduler calculates the critical start time of the critical job first and then works backwards along the chain of predecessors. These calculations are reiterated as many times as necessary until the critical job has run.

This option is only active if enWorkloadServiceAssurance is set to yes.

The default is 120 seconds.

Run JnextPlan to make this change effective.

resubmitJobName | rj
Name of the job in charge of resubmitting the job stream. Specify the name of the Job Stream Submission job which is automatically added to the plan to resubmit a new instance of the job stream where the start condition is defined.
