This article details the changes to existing features in CA Workload Automation AE Release 11.3.6 SP1.
Aggregate Statistics
In the current release, CA Workload Automation AE aggregates the job, alarm, and scheduler statistics automatically by default. The default value of the AggregateStatistics parameter in the configuration file is now set to 1. Also, the Aggregate Statistics check box in the Scheduler – CA Workload Automation AE window of the Administrator utility is now selected by default.
If you upgrade from Release 11.3.5 or Release 11.3.6 to the current release, the value of the AggregateStatistics parameter in the configuration file is reset to 1.
STATE_CHANGE Event is Issued When a Job Enters the QUE_WAIT, PEND_MACH, or RESWAIT State
When a job is placed in the QUE_WAIT, PEND_MACH, or RESWAIT state, the scheduler now issues a STATE_CHANGE event with an informative message. The event and the associated message are written to the scheduler log and are also displayed in the detailed autorep report that you can generate using the autorep -J jobname -d command.
Updated LOGROLLOVER Parameter
You can now set the LOGROLLOVER parameter to PURGE(x) to purge all log files that are older than the specified number of days at midnight. The default value of the LOGROLLOVER parameter is now set to MIDNIGHT,PURGE(7). All log files that are older than seven days are purged by default.
If you upgrade to the current release, the log files are not purged by default. Use the LOGROLLOVER parameter to specify that all log files that are older than the specified number of days are purged at midnight. For example, to purge log files that are older than 10 days, set the LOGROLLOVER parameter as follows:
LOGROLLOVER=PURGE(10)
Email Notifications
If you specify an application or group attribute in your job definition, the application name or the group name is now included in the email notification.
For better readability, view the email notification as plain text. This may require a change to the font used by your email editor.
SNMP Traps
In addition to the alarmName, alarmJobName, alarmText, alarmCode, alarmExitCode, trapDate, and trapMessge values, the SNMP trap now passes the following values:
  • alarmMachineName—The name of the machine where the job runs.
  • alarmBoxName—The name of the box that includes the job.
  • alarmApplicationName—The name of the application that is associated with the job.
  • alarmGroupName—The name of the group that is associated with the job.
  • alarmRunNum—The run number of the job.
  • alarmNtry—The number of times the job was restarted.
  • alarmInstanceName—The name of the instance.
Updated as-owner Resource Class
The as-owner resource class controls whether a user has permissions to include the owner attribute in the job definition. In addition, it now also controls whether a user has permissions to the existing job owner value to update, override, or delete any attribute of a job.
