    Abstract

    In an ordinary (non end-to-end) Tivoli Workload Scheduler network (one in which the MDM is a UNIX or Windows workstation) it is possible to create a file dependency on a job or job stream. This is not possible in an end-to-end network because the controlling system is Tivoli Workload Scheduler for z/OS.

    It is very common to use files as triggers or predecessors to job flows on non-mainframe systems such as UNIX servers.

    Tivoli Workload Scheduler 8.2 includes TWSHOME/bin/filewatch.sh, a sample script that can be used to check for the existence of files. This Technote discusses the usage of filewatch.sh.
