RELATED BATCH PROCESSES

Original author: Beth Mercer - 20070822

Overview

AUTHSERV batch jobs were primarily those that deal with cleanup of tokens generated by the authentication process and with synchronizing CGI scripts between "e" boxes.

Appworx jobs were scheduled on the toklat cluster and executed wrapper scripts which shelled over to the ldapgw account on "e" boxes. It then executed scripts having the same name as the toklat wrapper. See ~ldapgw/appworx/<server>_appworx_wrapper.pl on the talkeetna cluster which still do serve to wrap instructions from the <talkeetna>: ~sxldap/appworx directory.

"E" box:~ldapgw cron jobs

  • M-Su every 5 minutes execute /export/home/ldapgw/local/scripts/rsync<Inst>.ksh
    • Note: As of 9/24/2014, this cron job was not in evidence on any of the "E" box servers
  • M-Su every 5 minutes execute /export/home/ldapgw/AUTH<INST>/cgi-bin/token_cleanup <INST>
    • Note: As of 9/24/2014, this cron job has been discontinued

token_cleanup Test|Prep|Prod
