Running Scheduled Jobs

Navigate to PrL scheduling functionality by selecting Manage Jobs with Schedule from the Model Execution menu on the Predictive Learning (PrL) home page. The top half of the page is where you create a schedule for a job and specify where PrL reads the data from and where PrL is to write the data and other details of the job. In the lower half of the page, a table displays the scheduled jobs along with details about each. The Actions drop-down list for each job allows you to start and/or stop a job, and a details link that you can click to see all of the details for a job.

About Input Types

PrL supports input from Data Exchange, IoT, and Data Lake. Here are important details for each of the input sources:

  • Data Exchange: select an input and output folder; input folder data is read from the local path of the instance; Job Manager writes the output to the Data Exchange folder you specify.
  • IoT Data: select an IoT data export previously defined on the Manage Sources page.
  • Data Lake: specify an IDL path defined in the Manage Sources page.
  • Predictive Learning Storage: specify a remote sotrage path remote storage path that Job Manager can use for logs, errors, and outputs; these paths can be defined in the 'Managing_Job_Sources.htm'(file title is 'Managing Sources').

About Output Types

PrL supports output to Data Lake and Predictive Learning Storage. Here are important details for each of the output destinations:

  • Data Lake: select a path previously defined on the Manage Sources page; job manager utilizes that path as a log and stores standard console/error data there.
  • Predictive Learning Storage: define a remote storage path that Job Manager can use to logs, errors, and temporary outputs.
