Defining Batch Timings

This section provides an overview of batch timings and discusses how to define batch timings.

Batch Timings reports are provided so that you can monitor the performance of your application engine programs. The Process Scheduler - Batch Timings page applies to the Statement Timings data that is stored in the (table) option.

For the Batch Timings feature to record data, you must enable it using the Configuration Manager Trace tab. In the Application Engine group, select the Statement Timings (table) option.

Note: Whenever you run an application engine program and the Statement Timings trace options are enabled, you can always view the batch timings results using the Process Monitor.

To access the Batch Timings page, select PeopleTools > Process Scheduler > Batch Timings.
