Issue/Introduction

cfg_job_status_queue is yellow and we don't know what it is used for in UIM. ace.log shows:

Cause

- ace probe is no longer required as of UIM 8.5.1 or higher

Environment

- UIM v8.5.1
- ace 9.03

Resolution

The cfg_job_status_queue queue is used by the ACE probe (automatic configuration engine). 

For CA Unified Infrastructure Management v8.0 and v8.1, ace is responsible for storing alarm data in the UIM database.

For CA Unified Infrastructure Management v8.4, only customers using the SOC feature need ace. All other customers can deactivate ace on the Primary Hub.

If you are on UIM v8.51, SOC (service oriented configuration) is a deprecated feature, you are safe to simply delete that queue.
