Send event -E JOB_OFF_ICE -j jobname. AutoSys is a job control system. It is used for reporting, scheduling, and monitoring. An auto-sys machine that is network attached will hold these jobs. Before the name AutoSys, the system had many other names. Its common name is CA Workload Automation AE.
Along with commands, there are other AutoSys classification types. One is a file watcher, which waits for files to arrive. Another is a box job, which has one or many other jobs under a box. The system also has many job statuses, including starting, on ice, on hold, and terminated.
Autosys is a command and it is an edition. CA Workload Automation AE is the product name and the Autosys is the edition. The first version was released in 1992. After those other versions were released. The structure of the Autosys is through three tiers. The three tiers are Client utilities, Application servers, and scheduler servers and databases.
There are certain job types for Autosys. These include command, box, and file watcher. Each of these jobs performs a specific function. For example, there is a way to make a command that will put a job called OFF-ICE into the Autosys. To do this, you would need to type in the command called Send event-E Job_OFF_ICE -j jobname. This would create the command and put it in Autosys.
I love to code. I believe everything is programmed in a certain way to make it work. From human brains to every single command in the machines.

The job command that you will need to make this possible is “sendevent.” What you have to know is that this can be used for a wide variety of purposes, so you will be able to maximize the use of this command.
You can use this for stopping the event processor, and you can also use this when you want to put a job on hold. Take note that this is the recommended way to initiate a manual starting job.
The use of this command will make it possible to make use of different AE environment variables so that the $AUTOUSER config can be used to create the $AUTOSERV file.
Auto Sys is a workload automation system. This will make sure that it will be easier to do monitoring, reporting, scheming, and so much more. There is always a need to make sure that everything will go according to plan. The client will make sure that the whole thing can be processed easily. The client who will use Auto Sys will be able to run this and the program provided that he is using is Windows or UNIX server machine. Take note that Auto Sys can only be effective if it would be used for unmanaged processes that are needed for the client’s machine.
If you are not familiar, AutoSys is known to be a type of job control system that people may use for monitoring, reporting, scheduling, and so much more that needs to be done. What a lot of people do not know is that before it has gotten the name AutoSys, this used to be called by different names.
It is important that you understand what the different names are so that you will know what exactly you are looking at. Aside from doing commands, you should realize that there are also certain classification types that you can use. You can use the system properly when you know more details about it.
