Controlling Jobs

The following controls are available for running jobs in the Job Controller tab of the CommCell Console:

Suspend

Temporarily stops a job. A suspended job is not terminated; it can be restarted at a later time. Only preemptible jobs can be suspended.

Resume

Resumes a job and returns the status to Waiting, Pending, Queued, or Running, depending on the availability of resources or the state of the operation windows and activity control settings.

Restore jobs for the Virtual Server Agent are resumed from the beginning.

Kill

Terminates a job.

These controls can be applied to:

  • All jobs in the Job Controller.
  • All selected jobs in the Job Controller, providing you have security associations at the required level for each job selected.
  • All data protection operations running for a particular client, or for a client and agent.
  • All data protection operations running for a particular MediaAgent.

Procedure

From the Job Controller tab of the CommCell Console, right-click the job and select Kill, Suspend, or Resume.

  • When killing a job:

    If you are sure you want to kill the job, click Yes on the confirmation prompt. The job status may change to Kill Pending for a few moments while the operation completes. Once completed, the job status changes to Killed; after five minutes the job is removed from the Job Controller window.

  • When suspending a job:

    The job status may change to Suspend Pending for a few moments while the operation completes. The job status then changes to Suspended.

  • When resuming a job:

    As the Job Manager attempts to restart the job, the job status changes to Waiting, Pending, or Running.
