Jobs

Contributors netapp-ivanad

Jobs are asynchronous task and typically long-running volume operations, such as copying, moving, or mirroring data. Jobs are placed in a job queue and are run when resources are available. The cluster administrator can perform all the tasks related to job management.

A job can be one of the following categories:

  • A server-affiliated job is placed in queue by the management framework to be run in a specific node.

  • A cluster-affiliated job is placed in queue by the management framework to be run in any node in the cluster.

  • A private job is specific to a node and does not use the replicated database (RDB) or any other cluster mechanism.

    You require the advanced privilege level or higher to run the commands to manage private jobs.

You can manage jobs in the following ways:

  • Displaying job information, including the following:

    • Jobs on a per-node basis

    • Cluster-affiliated jobs

    • Completed jobs

    • Job history

  • Monitoring a job’s progress

  • Displaying information about the initialization state for job managers.

You can determine the outcome of a completed job by checking the event log.
