A job is a primary unit of configuration and scheduling in Axibase Collector.

Each job has the following generic properties:

Name Description
Type Job type, such as JDBC, JMX, FILE, etc.
Name Job name.
Enabled Job schedule status. The job must be enabled to execute on schedule.
Cron Expression Cron Expression determines how frequently the job is executed.
Storage Target ATSD server for sending collected data.

Type-specific properties, such as a SQL query in a JDBC job or a CSV parser in a FILE job, are specified in nested configuration objects.

+ job-1
  - configuration-1
+ job-2
  - configuration-2
  - configuration-3

The job may include multiple configurations. For example, a JDBC job may be configured to execute multiple SQL queries.

Cloning Jobs

You can create the exact copy of the job by clicking Clone.

The copied job has the same name as the original job but with the -cloned postfix.

By default, cloned jobs are disabled.

You can change the necessary settings and enable the job by selecting the check box and selecting Enable from the split button below the table.

A cloned job has a unique primary key and may run concurrently with the original job.
