Identifying and setting the start of the production day

If you already have Tivoli Workload Scheduler installed but do not know the start of the production day, perform the following steps to identify it. Most of the attributes of the production day are controlled through the command-line interface (CLI).

1. Log in as the TWSuser account on the master domain manager server. This account is also referred to as the maestro account.

2. Source in the environment variables for Tivoli Workload Scheduler.

$ . ./tws_env.sh
Tivoli Workload Scheduler Environment Successfully Set !!!

Enter the optman command, as shown in Example 7-3, for UNIX master domain manager servers. Use the same command on both UNIX and Windows master domain manager servers.

Example 7-3 Using the optman command to determine the start of the production day

$ optman show startOfDay

The line that starts with startOfDay  shows the start of the production day. In this example, the start of day is the default, 0559h, or 5:59 a.m. in the time zone of the master domain manager server.

4. Confirm that the launch time of the job stream named FINAL is one minute before the start of the production day. Enter the composer command, as shown in Example 7-4, for UNIX master domain manager servers. Use the same command on both UNIX and Windows master domain manager servers.

Example 7-4 Using the composer command to verify the start of the production day

Look for a line similar to the line AT 0559, which is highlighted in bold in Example 7-4. This indicates that the production day starts the FINAL job stream at 0559h, or 5:59 a.m. in the time zone of the master domain manager server.

Note: If the FINAL job stream is not set to run one minute before the start of the production day, contact your IBM service provider or Tivoli Workload Scheduler administrator for further details about your site's configuration.

 Description:
 Start time of processing day
Specify the start time of the Tivoli Workload Scheduler
processing day in 24 hour format: "hhmm" (0000-2359).
After changing this option, you must also change the
launch time of the "final" job stream, which is usually
set to one minute before the start time. For example, if the
startOfDay is set to 0600, the launch time of the "final"
job stream will be set to "0559" (05:59 AM).
The default start time is "0600" (06:00 AM) .
Run "JnextPlan" to make this change effective
