Defining scheduling activities using HCL Workload Automation

About this task

To perform scheduling activities using HCL Workload Automation you must first define the environment you want to manage in terms of scheduling objects and in terms of rules to be applied when scheduling operations to run on these objects. This information is stored by HCL Workload Automation in a DB2® or other supported database, herein referred to as database.

In addition to the definitions of scheduling objects, such as jobs, job streams, resources, workstations, and so on, the database also contains statistics about processed jobs and job streams, as well as information about the user who created an object and when an object was last modified. You can manage the scheduling object definitions in the database using either the HCL Workload Automation command-line program named composer or the graphical user interfaces, the Dynamic Workload Console. You can retrieve statistics or history information about processed jobs and job streams in the database using:
  • The HCL Workload Automation report utilities from the command line.
  • The Dynamic Workload Console.
  • The database views.
For more information about how to define scheduling objects, see Defining objects in the database.
