logic of backup job

Postby balaji_shc » Thu Jan 27, 2011 7:19 pm

Consider job A(Validate job ) is waiting on job B (Back up job ), job B will get triggered once its recieves the dataset(input file). Here , my question is what is the logic behind these process ie (How the back up job knows tht files has recieved for processing) ?

Thanks
Balaji.

From the Job Management Database Maintenance Guide manual for CA-7:
DB.2.6 - Data Set Triggering Panel
Use this panel to define or review data sets that trigger job scheduling when
either their creating jobs complete successfully or when the created/updated
data set is closed.
The answer to your question is that the backup job has no idea about when its files are received. CA-7 tracks the data set(s) and gets the backup job running once the data sets are created and closed or the creating job completes successfully.

You would be wise to read this manual cover to cover to learn more about how CA-7 does triggering (and everything else).

If your site is authorized to use CA-7, you have access to the manuals, either through your site support group or directly from Computer Associates (http://www.cai.com is their main web site). However, since these manuals are copyrighted and controlled, they cannot be linked to nor posted here.
