Using the Process Scheduler Menu

PeopleSoft Process Scheduler is used to schedule and run batch processes against the database. Process Scheduler domains are managed by Tuxedo, just as application server domains are. You only need to configure PeopleSoft Process Scheduler on a server where you intend to run batch processes. The menu options are identical to those provided for administering an application server domain, except where the options are not applicable to a Process Scheduler domain.

The Process Scheduler domain boot does not provide the option to select a serial or parallel boot. All Process Scheduler domains start in serial mode.

Viewing//Editing log files and configuration files

The Process Scheduler Edit/View Configuration/Log Files Menu does not display options for viewing the PSAPPSRV and PSSAMSRV SQL trace files.

Configuring Integration Broker (messaging) servers

For Process Scheduler domains there is no option to import a Master IB Domain nor is there the option to configure messaging servers.


For Process Scheduler domains there are not options to purge or preload file cache.

All of the Process Scheduler server configuration information for a specific domain is contained in the PSPRCS.CFG file, and PSADMIN provides an interface for and prompts you to edit the PSPRCS.CFG file.

Although you typically edit the PSPRCS.CFG file through PSADMIN, you can find the PSPRCS.CFG file in the following directory:

  • Windows: PS_CFG_HOME\APPSERV\PRCS\domain

  • UNIX: PS_CFG_HOME/appserv/prcs/domain
