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 ribbon, on the Home tab, click Control Panel.
  2. Under Data, click Job Management.

    The Job Management dialog box is displayed.

  3. On the Job Priorities tab, in the Priority column, click the priority of a specific agent and enter a lower priority number.
  4. Click OK.
