Monitoring

The Monitoring domain enables you to view jobs, monitor the processing of jobs, and control the job flow in your active environment. You can find, analyze, and identify problems by viewing the Log, Output, or Waiting info tabs, as described in Job Details and troubleshoot issues, as described in Analyzing and Troubleshooting a Job Workflow.

You can implement changes in your jobs and re-execute them in the Monitoring domain, as follows:

  • Viewpoints: View jobs that might impact the job workflow, or jobs you are currently defining and testing.

  • Service Management: Identify critical flows and notify when jobs designated as critical are expected to finish executing.

  • Job Management: Find, analyze, edit, and manipulate job flows to fix or bypass a problem.

  • Alerts: Generate alerts in circumstances that are relevant to your job flow.

For an interface description of the Monitoring domain, see Monitoring Navigation.

New Day Time

Every day at 12:00 am (New Day time), the Server removes all folders from the Monitoring domain unless the following conditions are met:

  • If all jobs Ended OK, the folder is removed.

  • If at least one job Ended Not OK, the folder remains until the next New Day time.

  • If at least one job did not start executing, the folder remains until the next New Day time. The folder can remain for a longer duration if Keep Active has been defined, as described in Folder Scheduling Attributes.

  • If at least one job continues executing or is held, the folder remains in the Monitoring domain until the job completes execution.

The following rules apply for jobs that remain in the Monitoring domain after New Day time:

  • Jobs that ended can execute again.

  • Jobs that did not start executing on their run date cannot execute. They can start executing if Keep Active has been defined, as described in Folder Scheduling Attributes.

  • Jobs that executed at least once, such as cyclic jobs, change to OK.
