Starting Situation

  • Depending on the license model customers of a Commercial License are obliged to perform license measurement activities on a regular basis.
  • The cmdlet Get-JobSchedulerInventory helps to keep track of JobScheduler Master and Agent instances in a network.
    • The JobScheduler Master instances are specified manually by the user.
    • The JobScheduler Agent instances are discovered automatically from the JobScheduler Master instances.

Use Cases

Count licenses for a JobScheduler Master instance

The following sample shows how to create inventory information for license counting from a JobScheduler Master and respective Agents:

Import-Module JobScheduler

# Write the inventory information to the specified XML output file
Get-JobSchedulerInventory http://localhost:4444 -OutputFile /tmp/inventory.xml
 
# Append the inventory information to the specified XML output file
Get-JobSchedulerInventory http://somehost:4444 -OutputFile /tmp/inventory.xml -Append

# Append the inventory information and return the XML object
$inventory = Get-JobSchedulerInventory http://localhost:4444 -OutputFile /tmp/inventory.xml -Append

Explanations

  • Line 4: The Get-JobSchedulerInventory cmdlet is used for the specified Master and writes the inventory information to the specified output file.
  • Line 7: The Get-JobSchedulerInventory cmdlet is used to append the inventory information for the specified Master to the specified output file.
  • Line 10: The Get-JobSchedulerInventory cmdlet is used to append the inventory information for the specified Master to the specified output file and to return the XML object.

 

The resulting XML output file will look like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<Inventory>
  <Masters>
    <Master Id="scheduler110" Url="http://localhost:4444/" ProxyUrl="" Version="1.10.5" State="running" Pid="2832" RunningSince="2016-07-13T21:01:48Z" JobChainsExist="51" OrdersExist="32" JobsExist="121" TasksExist="0" TasksEnqueued="0" surveyCreated="2016-07-15T00:56:10Z">
      <Agents>
        <Agent isTerminating="False" hostname="APMACWIN" currentTaskCount="0" startedAt="2016-07-13T21:01:52.591Z" version="1.10.5" totalTaskCount="0" Url="http://localhost:4445" MasterUrl="http://localhost:4444/" PSComputerName="localhost" RunspaceId="ec48894a-b518-4f30-a98d-814586cdb1cd" surveyCreated="2016-07-15T00:56:10Z" />

Count licenses for a number of JobScheduler Master instances

The following sample shows how to create inventory information for license counting from a number of JobScheduler Master instances:

Import-Module JobScheduler

# Write the inventory information for JobScheduler Master instances specified by a CSV input file to the specified XML output file
Get-JobSchedulerInventory -InputFile /tmp/inventory.csv -OutputFile /tmp/inventory.xml
 
# Create a list of JobScheduler Master instances that is piped to the cmdlet and write the inventory information to the specified XML output file
$instances = @( 'http://localhost:4444', 'http://somehost:4444' )
$inventory = $instances | Get-JobSchedulerInventory -OutputFile /tmp/inventory.xml -Append

Explanations

  • Line 4: Makes use of a CSV input file that contains the URLs of the respective JobScheduler Master instances as the first column.
  • Line 7: Creates a hashmap of JobScheduler Master URLs.
  • Line 8: Pipes the hashmap to the Get-JobSchedulerInventory cmdlet and appends the inventory information to the specified XML output file.

 

The CSV input file could look like this:

http://localhost:4444
http://somehost:4444
