Nobix JobQue/X - Main Components

TheJobQue/X software includes one data component and five separate client programs. These include the: • Schedule Administration client program

• Scheduler Communications client program • SCOM client program

• Scheduler Communications web interface • Submit client program

• Reporting client program

• JobQue/X Server (HP-UX, AIX, Linux, Solaris version) • JobQue/X Server (Windows version)

Together all these components help to automate batch job scheduling and eliminate the need for manual

intervention. JobQue/X is based on two concepts: the schedule and the calendar. Essentially, schedules contain a list of jobs to be run. Calendars list the dates and times on which schedules should run. The Schedule Administration program is used to create and manage the various job queues and calendars.

The Scheduler Communications program features an easy to use interface used to control JobQue/X. It can be used to start, pause and resume JobQue/X scheduling operations.

Schedule Administration


The SCOM program is an on-line utility that offers all of the same capabilities and functionality as both Scheduler Communications programs. It is offered as an alternative for users who prefer using a command line interface.

The Scheduler Communications web interface is used to manage most JobQue/X functionality via the Internet.

TheSubmit program is an on-line utility that is designed to be used by users from a terminal session on the JobQue/X server. The program is used to submit a job to JobQue/X so that it can be integrated into JobQue/X scheduling operations.


Scheduler Communications Web Interface


The JobQue/X Reporting program can be used to generate various types of reports. Schedule simulation reports show all the schedules JobQue/X plans to run during a set period of time, while calendar reports list all the days specific calendars are valid. A set of command buttons makes it easy to create the type of report users need.

JobQue/X server software is installed on an HP-UX, AIX, Solaris, Linux, or Windows computer. Along with the server software, various types of JobQue/X files are stored on this computer such as output files (stdin, stderr, stdout) schedule configuration files, and log files. All of these files are eventually purged from the computer based on JobQue/X retention management settings.


JobQue/X Server (Windows version)

Nobix JobQue/X - Main Components


The JobQue/X server software may be installed on an HP-UX, AIX, Solaris, Linux or Windows host. • JobQue/X server software runs on the following:

• IBM Power systems running AIX 5L 5.1 or later • HP9000s running HP-UX 11.0 or later

• HP Integrity systems HP-UX 11.0 or later • Intel x86 PCs running Red Hat Linux • Sun systems running Solaris 7.0 or later

• Intel x86 PCs running Windows 2000, XP or Server 2003

A minimum of 20 Mb of hard drive space is required. If output files are to be stored for a significant amount of time, more drive space will be required.

The JobQue/X client software requires Windows 2000, XP or 2003 running on a Pentium-class processor. Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 or later must also be installed on the computer. (The .NET Framework is available on the JobQue/X Installation CD.)

It is highly recommended that all web access to JobQue/X be provided by a secure server or a virtual private network (VPN), thus ensuring that any transferred data is encrypted. The web server must be configured and running on the same computer as the JobQue/X server software. (If you have installed JobQue/X server software on multiple computers the web server only needs to be configured and running on one of them.)

Technical support is provided for the JobQue/X software only. Additional items that may be used with JobQue/X are not included in the Nobix support plans.
