Jobs

Last modified

The last master node in the scope pane is Jobs.  This node shows scheduled, completed, and running tasks that were initiated either interactively or by execution of a configured policy.

The Jobs node displays 3 sub-nodes as defined in the following three sections:

Back to Top

Scheduled

All jobs that have been defined through a policy and are not currently under execution will have their next iteration displayed in the Scheduled Jobs list.  Once the jobs become current, they automatically move from the scheduled list to the running list, and the next iteration will be displayed in the scheduled list.

The result pane displays 2 columns:

 

  • Name – defines the scheduled operation and the volume group involved

 

  • Next Run – indicates the date and time of the next scheduled iteration

 

Note

You might see some scheduled backup runs missing from this list if the previous run is still in progress.  In other words, if a backup job takes long enough to spill into the next run, the next run is skipped and will not be visible in the scheduled list in the results pane.

Completed

A left mouse click on the completed node displays jobs that have completed regardless of whether or not the job was completed successfully.  The completed list displays all completed jobs, when the job started, when the job finished, the time elapsed in completing the job, the status of the job, and any associated information if the job had failed.

A right click on any completed Job in the list within the result pane displays a context menu that allows you to clear the job from the list.  Additionally, you can select multiple completed jobs using Ctrl-Shift-Click (to select jobs individually) or Shift-Click (to select a range) and clear multiple jobs from the list.

 

In the actions pane, a link is provided that allows you to export the list of jobs into a tab-delimited text file.  Clicking this link provides a pop-up that allows you to select where you want to save the file and under what name as shown below.

Running

A left click on the running sub-node will display a list of jobs that are currently in progress as shown below.  Once completed, jobs are removed from the running jobs list and moved to the completed jobs list.
