Introduction

The SSH (Secure Shell) JITL job (JobSchedulerSSHJob) allows a JobScheduler to execute programs on another computer without a JobScheduler Agent being installed on that machine.

The JobSchedulerSSHJob allows execution on Windows and Unix systems.

  • The elegance of SSH is its simplicity. It allows public/private key authentication and is well suited to executing programs for specific accounts.
  • One of the restrictions of standard SSH connections is that there is limited control of child processes on the remote host. 
    • If a number of child processes are spawned by a program during an SSH session and that session gets killed then these child processes would normally continue running.
    • The JobScheduler provides a method for monitoring SSH connections that allows both remote sessions and local JobScheduler tasks to be terminated.
