Autosys interview questions and answers - Page 1

1. What is a Job in Autosys ? Define it.

A definition you create that instructs the system what command, executable, or batch file to run.
A job is any single command, executable, script, or Windows batch file. Each job definition contains a variety of qualifying attributes, including the conditions specifying when and where a job should be run.

2. How will you define/insert a job in Autosys ?

There are two ways by which we can define a job in Autosys.
►Using the Graphical User Interface (GUI).
►Using the Job Information Language (JIL)

3. What is JIL in Autosys?

JIL stands for Job Information Language.

JIL is a specification language, with its own syntax, that is used to describe when, where, and how a job should run. When you enter the jil command, you get the jil command prompt, at which you can enter the job definitions one line at a time using this special language. When you exit the jil command-line interface, the job definition is loaded into the database. Alternatively, you can enter the definition as a text file and redirect the file to the jil command. In this case, the jil command activates the language processor, interprets the information in the text file, and loads this information in the database.

4. Draw the typical installation architecture of Unicenter Autosys ?

Event Server:
Stores all events and job information (relational database).

Event Processor:
Interprets and Evaluates job definitions and notifies a Remote Agent to initiate actions.

Remote Agent:
Performs tasks; sends resulting job statuses back to the Event Server. The agent may be Unix or Windows.

5. Explain INACTIVE status in Autosys jobs.

The job has not yet been processed. Either the job has never been run, or its status was intentionally altered to turn off its previous completion status.
