Is batch processing not when the computer saves up a lot of jobs, and then does them all at one time, at the end ? Wb

I thought that too.

No, its still in practice for some special scenarios. Like if i have to do some bulk action on remote database through objects, i will never do it one by one. Instead i will prefer to make a batch of all tasks and will submit it to remote database through batch queue. Remote DB then will execute the batch as a whole, and hence saving a lot of time.

what about the execution speed of the batch jobs —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:21, 13 October 2008 (UTC)


I placed {{merge}} tags on this article and Job processing cycle. Job processing cycle has no references, so there may be nothing to merge, in which case it should be redirected. Geo Swan (talk) 23:54, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

I did, in the end, simply redirect the unreferenced abandoned article. Geo Swan (talk) 09:49, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

Batch Performance Problem/Solution[edit]

A lot of this section is controversial. For example the suggestion that batch should complete in half the window. In mainframe batch circles at least this has never been "best practice", achieved, nor desirable. Similarly the "85% reduction" number is an overly aggressive one (and the point, arguably, need not be made). Martin Packer (talk) 10:08, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

Manual intervation[edit]

This term is used in both the first and second sentences. Can anyone think of a synonym or another way of saying this so it isn't repetitious? Peter Flass (talk) 16:58, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
