I'm just a stupid developer and don't have much experience in job scheduling. We use a job documentation form in OneInfo to request that our schedule team enter in the job requirements in OPC.
I've been hounding that team for questions for quite a while now, without any real good answer, so here I am.
I have an application that is ETT'd by multiple jobs that could possibly execute at the same time. This application needs to run single threaded, i.e. the whole app finishes before another instance of it is brought into the schedule and executed.
I was informed I could create a special resource to make this app wait. But, what happens when I have 2 ETT'd requests sitting in the schedule for this application at the same time, while there is already one instance of it executing? When I set the availability on the special resource, will both instances of the ETT'd requests kick-off at the same time, or will one wait for the other?
This is my problem. I hope someone can answer, or maybe come up with a better solution?
