    Does workload automation AE (autosys) supports round-robin scheduling on Agent hosts.


    -bash-4.1$ mr betapmcc

    Machine Name Max Load Current Load Factor O/S Status
    ________________________________________________________________________________ __________ ____________ _______ ___________ ______
    betapmcc.betapmcc1 100 0 1.00 Sys Agent Online
    betapmcc.betapmcc2 100 0 1.00 Sys Agent Online

    not really it doesnt. you can use autosys virtual machine to sort of work but it will just pick the best CPU.

    You can use a script as a machine. In jil

    machine: `/tmp/`

    /tmp/  is on WAAE manager.

    /tmp/ has to make a echo of a machine: (example:  echo betapmcc1).

    Then you can write in shell something like

    MACHINE=`cat /tmp/prev_machine`

    if [ "$MACHINE" = "betapmcc1" ] ; then





    echo $MACHINE > /tmp/prev_machine

    echo $MACHINE

    Hello iamintown- To clarify you want the machines to take turns running jobs, so if you need to process 10 jobs you want machineA to run job1, machineB to run job2, machineA to run job3, machineBto run job4, etc. Correct?
