We are using a scheduling product that runs on windows and Unix. We run PERL scripts on both platforms and some ksh scripts on the Unix
platform. This product allows you to create each server as a client that communicates with a main server. The main server acts as a "traffic
cop". The main server has failover capabilities and if for some reason a client breaks a link with the main server but is still running processes
successfully, the client just stores up all messages that will get processed as soon as the communication link is re-established. This product
doe not interface directly with Teradata. It just runs scripts. You can pass parameters to the scripts. The tool has just enough "bells and
whistles" to be useful......but simple enough to use without much training.
This product will allow you to set dependencies that are running on different platforms. You can have a process that runs on Unix waiting for
a NT process to complete before it kicks off.
