Understanding Server Definitions

Server definitions are created to help balance your workload on the system by identifying certain servers to perform processes. You determine which processes you want to schedule through PeopleSoft Process Scheduler and 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.
