RE: Job Scheduling Tool

The bug relates to Windows (multi-cpu) machines so cron is no good.

Windows Task Scheduler is your next best option for a freebie. Scripting in
Windows is not the most fun but  if all you're doing is calling a stored
procedure or executing sqlldr then it doesn't need to be overly complex.

Cheers,
Graeme.

Don,

I agree with Joe & Raj.  We use cron.  We have OEM and are exploring using
it for "fixit" jobs.  We also use Maestro for NT systems - only because we
don't have "privs" to run 'AT' on those boxes.

What are other members of the list using and would recommend?
