Oracle Job Scheduling

Chapter 2 - Configuring Oracle Job Scheduling

Job Classes

PROCEDURE create_job_class(
  job_class_name          IN VARCHAR2,
  resource_consumer_group IN VARCHAR2     DEFAULT NULL,
  service                 IN VARCHAR2     DEFAULT NULL,
  logging_level           IN PLS_INTEGER  DEFAULT
  log_history             IN PLS_INTEGER  DEFAULT NULL,
  comments                IN VARCHAR2     DEFAULT NULL)

The parameters associated with this procedure and their usage are as follows.

  • job_class_name - A name that uniquely identifies the job class.

  • resource_consumer_group - The resource consumer group associated with the job class.

  • service - The service database object the job belongs to, not the tnsnames.ora service.

  • logging_level - The amount of logging that should be done for this job, specified by the constants logging_off, logging_runs, and logging_full.

  • log_history - The number of days the logging information is kept before purging.

  • comments - Free text allowing the user to record additional information.

Suffice it to say that it must be decided with which resource consumer group the job class should be associated.  Information about resource consumer groups can be displayed using the dba_rsrc_consumer_groups view.
