Hi,

 

I am testing how OMTF jobs work and I am running jobs defined by following fil

 


/* ----------------- seu_text_file_reading_b ----------------- */

insert_job: seu_text_file_reading_b   job_type: BOX
owner: autosys@hpwaatst
permission:
date_conditions: 0
alarm_if_fail: 1


 /* ----------------- seu_text_file_reading_wait_omtf ----------------- */

 insert_job: seu_text_file_reading_wait_omtf   job_type: OMTF
 box_name: seu_text_file_reading_b
 machine: seu_mach
 owner: autosys@hpwaatst
 permission:
 date_conditions: 0
 alarm_if_fail: 1
 encoding: US-ASCII
 text_file_name: "/home/autosys/text_file_reading.txt"
 text_file_mode: Line
 text_file_filter_exists: 1
 monitor_mode: WAIT
 text_file_filter: error


 /* ----------------- seu_text_file_reading_now_omtf ----------------- */

 insert_job: seu_text_file_reading_now_omtf   job_type: OMTF
 box_name: seu_text_file_reading_b
 machine: seu_mach
 owner: autosys@hpwaatst
 permission:
 date_conditions: 0
 alarm_if_fail: 1
 encoding: US-ASCII
 text_file_name: "/home/autosys/text_file_reading.txt"
 text_file_mode: Line
 text_file_filter_exists: 1
 monitor_mode: NOW
 text_file_filter: error

 

file has the key word before I run the jobs

cat "/home/autosys/seur/text_file_reading.txt"
hola
error
adios

 

I would expect both jobs to run ok but seu_text_file_reading_now_omtf  ends ok but seu_text_file_reading_wait_omtf  keeps running

 

Why is this happening?

Does monitor mode check for a new entry with the word error?

 

thanks

José

 

PS

In fact I tested and in case a new match is done the wait job finished, but I thought it would check first for any occurrence. I misunderstood how monitor woks
