Displaying Default Schedules

When you display a Default Schedule, you can see all the batch processing machines on the network and when they are scheduled to perform the batch processing work. The Default Schedule also displays the type of batch processing work (vectorize or render) and which environments are scheduled for the processing work.

After you display the default schedule, you can modify it to change the time, type of batch processing, or environments to process. For more information on modify the Default Schedule using the Setdef command, see Modifying Default Schedules.

To display a Default Schedule, follow these steps:

1. Type Showdef in a Linux shell and press [Enter]. The system prompts you for the machine or machines whose Default Schedule you want to see.

INPUT A SINGLE MACHINE NAME, THE PREFIX OF A MACHINE NAME, OR all [all]:

2. Select which machines to view by typing the name of a single machine, a prefix (to select a range of machines that start with the same prefix), or all to view all the Default Schedules for all the machines.

If you press [Enter] without specifying a machine, the command uses the machine name that appears in brackets.

If you type a prefix, a list of machines that contain that prefix appears. Type the numbers that correspond to the machines you want to view.

For example, if you have three machines that start with "hi", you can type hi as a prefix. The system would then display a list of all the machines that start with"hi":

input a set of machines, or hit return to indicate all these machines:

1 = hickey, 2 = highlander, 3=high-definition

You can either press [Enter] to select all the machines in the list or you can select certain machines by typing their corresponding numbers.

The command then prompts you to ask if you want to view more machines.

DO YOU WANT TO INPUT MORE MACHINES (y/n) [n]:

3. Decide if you want to view more environments and machines.
Type y to select more machines and press [Enter].
Type n to not select any more machines and press [Enter].

The Default Schedule for the selected machines appears.
