What is VM Batch Facility? Latest service available

With VM Batch Facility you and your users can make more effective use of your VM system.

The IBM VM Batch Facility is a batch processing and job scheduling program that controls computing tasks that do not require your direct attention. You can put the commands you would enter at the terminal into a CMS REXX exec.

The VM Batch Facility can also schedule jobs for off peak hours to take advantage of computing resources that might not normally be used at those times. [ More ]
