You create server definitions to help balance your workload on the system by identifying certain servers that will perform processes. You determine which processes you want to schedule through PeopleSoft Process Scheduler, and you identify servers that you want slated to run specific types of processes. For example, you might want to have one server called RPTSRV to manage all reports and another to manage all journal posting.


To ensure that jobs continue processing without interruption and that they run on time after a hardware or software failure hosting a PeopleSoft Process Scheduler Server Agent, you can automatically reassign requests to an available agent based on the value that is selected for the Redistribute Workload option.


Note: After creating the server definition, you must configure the PeopleSoft Process Scheduler Server using PSADMIN.


Upon completion of this lesson, you will be able to:

• Maintain server definitions.

• Define report nodes.

• Define daemon groups.

• Associate daemon groups to servers.

• Define batch timing.
