Job Scheduling

LXI Job Scheduler (LXIScheduler) is a sophisticated and cost effective job scheduling solution that allows you to automate day-to-day processes.


LXIscheduler provides unlimited scheduling options. Most jobs can be scheduled by specifying a command and a run time while others require run dates and times within user defined calendars. If exceptions are required, you can enter reusable calendars that define run dates, holidays, or even non-working dates. Specify alternate run dates and times for non-working days, or override dates and times for unexpected or special runs.

Capture Facility

Teach LXIscheduler your procedures automatically, while you submit jobs normally from menus or command lines. The LXIscheduler Capture Facility simplifies and automates job setup by “capturing” all needed information. This feature helps eliminate errors and reduces the time and effort involved in setting up jobs.

Dependent Jobs

LXIscheduler will run a scheduled job based on the outcome of another job, even if the job ran on another system. Automate interrelated jobs regardless of complexity. Easily define multiple job dependencies and pass parameters to and from scheduled jobs. Job dependencies that link jobs across your entire network of IBM i are easily created.

This application provides event or time-driven job scheduling and includes numerous calendar options, local or remote dependencies, and report distribution capabilities. Network management allows you to update or retrieve remote scheduling information.
