The Oracle Database job scheduler helps you schedule jobs to run at a designated date and time or upon the occurrence of a designated event. With Applications Manager you can boost database performance by managing, monitoring, and controlling Scheduler jobs more effectively.
There are multiple states that a job undergoes from its creation to its completion. Applications Manager logs scheduler activity and information such such that the status of a job its last run time can be easily tracked. Details like run, retry and failure count provide valuable information about job execution that can help you schedule and better manage your jobs. For example, you can easily track all jobs that failed for a particular user.
