We have again observed jobs with lower priority are running ahead of jobs with higher priority when RESWAIT conditions exist.


Release : 11.3.6

Component : CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys)


The priority will be applied only when all the jobs are queued for the same virtual resource.

If two jobs each for a different resource are queued in RESWAIT, the priority does not applied.

JobA with lower priority can run before jobB with higher priority when the resource requirement for jobA is met.

In your case, you have seven jobs, only the first three jobs require the same virtual resource. All three jobs have the same priority. The other four jobs each require a different resource.
