Job Scheduling

Previous Next  Print this Topic

Job scheduling windows are evident when creating policies; they determine when those policies should run as jobs. The jobs can be scheduled to run on various dates and times.

If you want to save ingested data to a Vault, a Target and Process Policy is necessary to setup. It is recommended to create policies as soon as Phoenix VCM is configured and installed. You do not have to allow a certain amount of time to pass in order to implement policies to optimize storage capacity. To maximize Phoenix VCM's data asset management capabilities, be sure to implement a Data Service Policy to migrate, replicate, or purge data on network Vaults, or to near-line or offline storage devices.

When creating these policies, on the Scheduling tab, use the following job scheduling windows to support the policy implementation process.

Date window

Use to set a date for when your job is to run.

Date window

1.Using the arrow buttons by the month and year at the top, set your month and year preference.
2.Click a particular day from the calendar.
3.Click OK. (Click Cancel, to close the dialog box without saving new or changed parameters.)

Time window

Use to set a time for when your job is to run.

Time window

1.From the drop-down lists, select the hour and minutes for your time preference, and then select either AM or PM.
2.Click OK. (Click Cancel, to close the dialog box without saving new or changed parameters.)

Days window

Use to define on which days of the week a job is to run.

Days window

1.Select the day(s) you want the job to run.
2.Click OK to save the values to the policy. The selected days appear in the On what days of the week text box. (Click Cancel, to close the dialog box without saving new or changed parameters.)

Duration window

Use to set a maximum time that a job should be allowed to run.

Duration window

1.Set the duration using the Hour, Minutes, and Seconds boxes. The job terminates after the duration time is met.
2.Click OK. The Should the job be stopped before it is completed text box displays the duration of the job before it terminates. (Click Cancel, to close the dialog box without saving new or changed parameters.)

Time Interval window

Use to set the time interval to run your jobs at. The job runs at the interval entered until it is changed. To stop a job that is using the repeat setting, edit or delete the policy.

For example, to run a job every three hours, enter 3:00:00; once a day, enter 24:00:00; every two days, enter 48:00:00. If you enter 3:30:30, the job repeats every three hours, thirty minutes, and thirty seconds from the time the policy is saved.

Time Interval window

1.Set the time interval for the job to run using the Hours, Minutes, and Seconds boxes. The clock for the interval begins as soon as you save the policy.
2.Click OK. (Click Cancel, to close the dialog box without saving new or changed parameters.)

Period of Time window

Use to search for files that have been modified within a defined period of time.

Period of Time window

1.Enter a period of time in terms of years, months, days, hours, minutes, or seconds. Enter any combination or up to a maximum period of 10 Years, 100 Months, 1000 Days, 100000 Hours, 1000000 Minutes, and 1000000 Seconds.
2.Click OK, and the text box where you started from displays the value entered. (Click Cancel, to close the dialog box without saving new or changed parameters.)
