What Is AutoSys Scheduling?

AutoSys scheduling is a method of scheduling server-based jobs on a computer network with the server tool Workload Automation AE from CA Technologies. This application identifies, controls and reports on jobs performed on servers and network clients.

AutoSys works on both Linux and Windows servers and clients. Jobs can be programmed using a graphical interface, Java programming or UNIX script. Each job is first defined as a specific set of actions or conditions and then programmed to run at specific intervals. AutoSys allows jobs that involve continuous monitoring of databases for new information. When new information is found, the scheduled job takes place. AutoSys also prepares reports and delivers them in relation to scheduled jobs.
