Datstage solutions, knowledge base, FAQ and best practices
2.6. Is it possible to run a server job in parallel?
Yes, even server jobs can be run in parallel.
To do that go to 'Job properties' -> General and check the Allow Multiple Instance button.
The job can now be run simultaneously from one or many sequence jobs. When it happens datastage will create new entries in Director and new job will be named with automatically generated suffix (for example second instance of a job named JOB_0100 will be named JOB_0100.JOB_0100_2). It can be deleted at any time and will be automatically recreated by datastage on the next run.
