JAMS Queues vs Resources


A Batch Queue is defined by the number of concurrent Job Executions allowed within the Queue.

  • A Batch Queue could be adjusted when submitting a Job, but a required Resource cannot be adjusted post Job submission
  • Within a Batch Queue, a concurrent Job limit is assigned
  • Each Job will execute within a Batch Queue Slot


Within a Resource Definition, a total number of available units defines the limitation.

  • Resource intensive Jobs can be configured to consume a larger number of units from the pool of available units. As these Jobs execute they consume the available units and release them upon completion
  • Resource requirements can be defined at the Folder and Job level. These values are added together to form the total units required for the Job to begin Executing
