Batch scheduling is applicable where the tasks and processes are large in numbers. Anything that can be handled within the business or work environment is either limited or vast. Any business runs on the efficiency of its employees and management of various tasks. However, when the tasks become quite large in number, the business demands hiring of more employees and manpower. At a point where this manpower does not suffice, the economical loss is beared by the organization. Batch scheduling refers to resolving such complications. The tasks are assigned and handled by the software platform that runs on the core principle of automation.
Batch scheduling automation takes care various simultaneous process even when the manual interaction is negligible. It requires the process triggering using various features and tools embedded in the batch scheduling software. Batch scheduling can be done for files, scripts and executable entities. With a software like Visualcron, you can pretty much handle large amount of processes. You should take care of the fact that though a batch scheduling software can easily execute but the ultimate execution process demands the system compatibility requirements.
The power of automation performs at its best when the remote execution and script execution is handled pretty smoothly with the predefined commands over the remote server. The processes can be simultaneously killed and various assembly execution methods can also be easily performed.
The ping service that is usually used to test the IP address and internet connectivity can be handled smoothly with less amount of network resistance. The FTP connectivity is secure and reliable followed by the encrypted codes.
The email, instant messaging, pushbullet services that includes sending messages, sms, links, files and uploading and downloading is securely handled. PGP Encryption and Decryption task can be set up using PGP keys or a simple alphanumeric password.
Common Windows file based tasks like copying, archiving. listing, reading, writing, touching, deleting, renaming, concatenation and folders functions like listing, copying pasting is easily achievable.
Triggering small components of the system like registry tasks, system shutdown and restart, locking applications, system restore point creation, logging off and hibernate, wake up and standby, printing documents and performing monitor functions such as brightness, contrast, sharpness,etc. can also be defined as a particular task that needs to be performed.
Event log reading and writing tasks, adjusting sound functions, setting job variables and report functions does not require much of the efforts. These can be simply defined in the batch scheduling software along with the other multiple processes.
