Book Giveaway & Chapter Download: Mastering Oracle Scheduler in Oracle 11g Databases

Oracle Scheduler does a lot of out of the box things, and if the demands are not too high, Oracle Scheduler can cover most of the situations. When your application has to run many thousands of jobs in an hour and log them over a long period, a little more attention is needed. In cases where the demands are high, we need to take care of a few more things to keep the system happy. What we need to do depends on how the Scheduler is used and what kind of load it is supposed to handle.

In this chapter, we will take a closer look at how we can control this beast. We will take a look at the privileges for job creation, job execution, and Scheduler management. We will also examine how to control logging retention and find a way to prevent jobs from running when the database starts.

Job Creation

Like most object types in the database, as seen at the beginning of Chapter 1, Oracle enables us to create Scheduler objects. The privileges create job and create external job are very important. They should normally be used when building an application system . Also, there is a create any job privilege, which can be useful when you need to create a job in a different schema. Normally, this privilege should not be granted to anyone. It will allow the grantee to run an arbitrary code on any schema, which is not particularly desirable. Instead, just log on to the correct schema and perform the tasks using the correct privileges.
