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.

The following video describes the Monitoring domain:

Job Status

The following table lists the statuses that a job and folder can attain from the time it enters the Run Queue until completion.

Status Symbol

Status Name

Ended OK.

Ended Not OK.

If all jobs in a folder have ended and one job Ended Not OK, the folder has a Not OK status.

Executing

A folder remains with an Executing status until all jobs have completed execution.

Waiting for host (Agent).

Waiting for event.

Waiting for resource.

Waiting for user confirmation.

Unknown status.

New Day Time

Every day at midnight (New Day time), each 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 SMART 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 SMART Folder Scheduling Attributes.

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

You can set the New Day time according to your actual business processing working day.

If New Day time is set to 6:00 am, then the working day starts at 6:00 am on 4 August and ends at 6:00 am on 5 August.

Each Control-M/Server has a limit of up to 100,000 executions per day. For each Control-M/Server, you can order 20,000 job definitions during New Day. The other job definitions must be ordered with User Dailies.
