This article describes new features added to CA Workload Automation AE in Release 11.3.6 SP1.
(UNIX) Enabling Core File Creation
On UNIX, core file creation is enabled for the server processes (scheduler and application server) to enhance supportability. Core file creation is enabled only when the server processes are started using the unisvrcntr command or by a root user.
Enabling SSL Communication Between CA Workload Automation AE and CA Service Desk
You can enable SSL communication between CA Workload Automation AE and CA Service Desk.
On HP-UX, you cannot enable SSL communication between CA Workload Automation AE and CA Service Desk.
To configure CA Workload Automation AE to work with CA Service Desk using SSL communication, perform the following tasks:
  1. Enable SSL communication between CA Workload Automation AE and CA Service Desk. 
    For information about enabling SSL communication between CA Workload Automation AE and CA Service Desk, see Configure CA Workload Automation AE to Work with Other CA Technologies Products.
  2. Specify a HTTPS URL in the ServiceDeskURL parameter in the configuration file (UNIX) or the URL Location field in the Service Desk pane on the Integration - CA Workload Automation AE Administrator window of the Administrator utility (Windows).
New DBMAINT_FAILURE (548) Alarm
The DBMAINT_FAILURE (548) alarm indicates that the DBMaint command failed during automated database maintenance.
New autobcpORAdp.pl Script
On Oracle, you can now use the autobcpORAdp.pl script to synchronize the databases quickly; thereby improving performance.
New status Attribute
The status attribute sets an initial status for a job during insertion. This can prevent jobs from running during the insertion process.
Monitoring Available Disk Space
The agent is now configured to monitor the amount of available disk space and send notifications to warn you when the space is too low. The agent has three disk space warning thresholds:
  • Notice—The agent logs a warning notice when the available disk space is less than the size specified in the agent.resourcemon.threshold.disk.warning.notice parameter in the agentparm.txt file. The agent continues to run; it accepts new and eligible pending jobs requests.
  • Severe—The agent logs a severe warning when the available disk space is less than the size specified in the agent.resourcemon.threshold.disk.warning.severe parameter in the agentparm.txt file. The agent stops accepting new job requests. All jobs that are scheduled to start on this agent are put in a PEND_MACH status.
  • Critical—The agent logs a critical warning and shuts down when the available disk space is less than the size specified in the agent.resourcemon.threshold.disk.critical parameter in the agentparm.txt file.
For information about configuring the agent to monitor the available disk space, see CA Workload Automation Agents - 11.3.4.
