Have been curious for a while about this one, can anyone enumerate the differences between forecast and job_depends in WAAE for me? I personally prefer the quality of output from forecast but it seems limited in that it does not support forecasting by application or group
Also... does anyone know why job_depends is available via client but forecast must be run only on core component servers (technical reason)?
When you run job_depends is the heavy lifting done by the application server or by the client machine?
What do most of you turn to for predicting runs during future windows (e.g. job_depends vs. forecast vs. reporting on the same window last week/month via db query etc.)?
