About Schedule Manager

The Schedule Manager (nvsched) runs on the NetVault Backup Server. This process manages the job schedules and queues. It also manages the Scheduler Database.

The Schedule Manager initiates the Job Manager to start a job instance, and schedules the next instance for recurring jobs; the Job Manager runs the job. This process also updates the Job Status page and provides job scheduling data to the Reporting utility.

You can modify the Schedule Manager settings from the Change Settings page.

Configuring default job priority settings

The Schedule Manager assigns a default priority level to each job type (backup, restore, and report). These default settings are applied globally to all backup, restore, and report jobs. The priority settings are used to prioritize resource allocation when two or more jobs are scheduled to run at the same time. You can change the default job priority settings from the Change Settings page.

By default, the Schedule Manager assigns the following priority levels:

To change the priority settings globally for all jobs, use the following procedure. You can override the priority setting for an individual job by configuring the Job Priority option in the Schedule Set. For more information, see Creating Schedule Sets, Table 35.
