Job Priorities and Priority Precedence - Getting Started

The priority of a job determines which job has precedence on the other competing jobs. When a job is started, the Job Manager assigns it a job priority number. The lower the job priority number is, the higher the priority. The job with the highest priority gets the resources first.

The Job Manager automatically assigns a priority of 6 to all agents. Therefore, the Job Manager assumes that all agents have the same priority.

Use the following steps to set a higher priority for a specific agent:

  1. From the CommCell Console toolbar, click Control Panel.

    Under the System section, click Job Management.


  2. Click the Job Priorities tab.

    Click the Priority column for a specific agent and enter a lower priority number.

    Click OK.
