Scheduler on AS400 ?

Dear List,

We are running XE on a AS400 enterprise server and would like to know about any 3rd party scheduling packages which are being used and how well they work. The AS400 scheduler and Oneworld's scheduler seem to be inadequate in features needed to run our jobs effectively.

Hello!

This ROBOT scheduler can you schedule a job with it that runs every 5 minutes between lets say 07:00 and 18:00 only during weekdays ?

That is what we are looking for.

Hello, Patricia,
Did you have any issues with Robot? If you did how did you solve them?

RE: RE: Scheduler on AS400 ?

yes you can see details below.


EVERY

Select this option to run the job at regular time intervals.



Note: With the EVERY scheduling option, the job is submitted

immediately, unless you have entered a time range on the Exception

Scheduling panel. The job schedule is recalculated whenever you

update the job or press function key 10 to go to the next option.



***** Run every n minutes

Re: RE: Scheduler on AS400 ?

Richard,

We do a similar function all within the AS400. We created a CL program that loops every 15 minutes. So doing it every 5 is a easy. Just a change in the delay. Then we created a scheduled job on the AS400 itself to start the program every day except Sunday, in our case, at 07:00 in the morning. It self starts and self terminates. This terminates at 7:00 PM, when the hour changes to 19 so the last run is at 18:45. We've been running this for over 2 years now.

Here are the critical pieces of the CL program:
...
DCL VAR(&HOUR) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(2)
DCL VAR(&HOURD) TYPE(*DEC) LEN(2 0)
...
LOOP: RTVSYSVAL SYSVAL(QHOUR) RTNVAR(&HOUR)
CHGVAR VAR(&HOURD) VALUE(&HOUR)
IF (&HOURD > 18) THEN(GOTO END)
SBMJOB CMD(RUNUBE USER(***) PASSWORD(***) +
ENVIRON(Your Environment here) REPORT(R####) +
VERSION(XXXX) HOLD(*NO) SAVE(*NO)) +
JOB(Job Name Here) JOBD(ONEWORLD) +
JOBQ(Job Queue Here) OUTQ(QPRINT)
DLYJOB DLY(900)
GOTO LOOP
END:


Add whatever job or jobs you want and there you go! No 3rd part programs to mess with or fuss with.

Hope this helps,

Dave Schlieder

You can also get the AS/400 license program 5769JS1, the Advanced AS/400 Job
Scheduler, to do this. It's also probable a little cheaper than the
Help/Systems ROBOT scheduler.

Re: RE: Scheduler on AS400 ?

One other option would be to write a CL program that performs a dlyjob for
5 minutes in a loop. You could control the loop to happen a specific
number of times, and end the program after the loop completed. This job
could be scheduled for any number of days in a week. This would save the
investment in a Robot program.

Thanks,

Yes. You select the days of the week.

Yes, ROBOT can easily take care of this requirement!
