Job Scheduler - definition(s)

job scheduler - A job scheduler is a program that enables an enterprise to schedule and, in some cases, monitor computer "batch" jobs (units of work, such as the running of a payroll program). A job scheduler can initiate and manage jobs automatically by processing prepared job control language statements or through equivalent interaction with a human operator. Today's job schedulers typically provide a graphical user interface and a single point of control for all the work in a distributed network of computers.

Some features that may be found in a job scheduler include:

   * Continously automatic monitoring of jobs and completion notification
   * Event-driven job scheduling 
   * Performance monitoring
   * Report scheduling
