SQL job manager is Idera’s next generation solution for scheduling and managing SQL Server jobs across your enterprise. SQL job manager gives you a simple way to see jobs that have run or are scheduled to run on one or many SQL Servers, schedule or edit jobs and quickly and easily re-schedule jobs by dragging and dropping them on a calendar.
SQL job manager provides a time-saving solution for managing SQL Agent jobs across the enterprise. SQL job manager streamlines the process of cross-server SQL Server job management, dramatically reducing job failure rates and time spent on tedious job management activities.
WHY ENTERPRISE JOB MANAGER?
Managing SQL Server agent jobs across multiple servers and instances is difficult without the right tools.
Scheduling jobs to run within maintenance windows, managing competing jobs for resource contention, and keeping
on top of job status across the enterprise requires effective management strategies. Failing backup jobs or defragmentation
jobs that don’t complete slow performance, cause added down time, and could even result in data loss. SQL Enterprise
Job Manager is a comprehensive tool that helps DBAs simplify job scheduling and management across the enterprise so
their SQL environment runs like a well-oiled machine.
• Monitor SQL Server agent jobs across the enterprise
• Easily view job status and details with familiar calendar layout
• Chain jobs together to build automated workflows
• Configure and manage jobs that run over multiple instances
• Set alerts to be notified of potential issues
• Web-based architecture simplifies deployment
Comprehensive Job Management
See what is scheduled to run and when across the entire SQL Server landscape with up to the minute status information on currently running jobs. Easily create, edit and delete SQL Server agent jobs with a few simple clicks. Quickly identify job status across every instance or drill down to a single instance with the easy to read color-coded calendar layout.
Automate Job Schedules
Configure jobs to run automatically upon the completion of previousjobs to automate workflows and save time. Drag and drop jobs to create job chains to perform many related jobs on a server or acrossdifferent servers through the use of an intuitive graphical interface.
Stay on top of issues with configurable email alerts for jobs across your SQL Server environment. Establish alerts for indicators such as when jobs fail or restart, server instance connection failures or when job agentshave stopped running.

Job Scheduling and Conflict Resolution
Two capabilities are available to enhance job scheduling efficiency and reduce conflicts. The Server Performance
Timeline provides an overview of running jobs across instances as compared to CPU cycles being consumed to identify performance hogs. The Job Overlap view provides details on overlapping job runtimes so scheduling can be adjusted to limit conflicts.
Job Trending Analysis
Analyze job execution results by day, week, month, or year to identify trends and tune performance. View trends like the top
failed jobs, most frequently run jobs, and longest running jobs.Even forecast job duration increases and compare highest increases over selected time periods.
Monitor Windows Server Agent Jobs
Monitor and manage Windows Server Agent jobs alongside SQL Server jobs in a single tool to improve productivity and enable
cross platform job management.
Alerts & Notifications
Create job alerts and set up email notifications to stay informed and on top of issues as they happen. Set custom alert thresholds to
make sure you receive notifications tailored to your environment.
View the run history of all monitored jobs. The job history page provides an overview of each jobs status, run duration, and
summary of the results. Filtered views help you quickly get to the information you want. You can also export the data as a .PDF, .CSV,
or XML file.
Easily copy a job and apply to another instance or use as a starting point for the quick creation of a similar job. All the original details
of the job are loaded into the job creation wizard making it easy to modify just what needs to change.

Configure simple to complex chains of jobs that can run either in series or in parallel to each other. The software utilizes a drag and drop interface to schedule the execution order. Job chains can be defined on a single server or span across multiple SQL Server instances.
Multi-Instance Jobs: Create and manage jobs that run over multiple instances to simplify management of common tasks, ensure consistency, and save time.
Once created, individual instances can be easily added or removed from the multi-instance job as your environment and needs change.
