Include in estimated duration

Specifies whether the Estimated duration of the step and actual processing time is used to calculate the Tracking status of a job.

Values:

Yes

The Estimated duration of the step is used to calculate the estimated processing time for a job and the actual time a job spends in the step is used to calculate the elapsed time for a job. If the actual time of the steps processed is more than the total of the estimated durations of those steps, the Tracking status is set to Behind schedule.

No (default)

The Estimated duration and the actual processing time of the step are not used to calculate the Tracking status of a job.

Database name

Step.DT.IncludeStepTime

Usage notes

  • If this property is set to No and you change it to Yes, make sure the Estimated duration for the step is correct. The default duration for all step templates is one minute for every job. If the step takes longer than one minute, the Tracking status of a job changes to Behind schedule when the step is processed.
  • Tracking status is only calculated after the first step that has an estimated duration has been run. To compute the tracking status at the start of the job, include the SetJobPropsFromTextFile step in the estimated duration.
  • Tracking status is only updated when a job is being processed in a step that is included in the estimated duration. If a job goes into error in a step that is not included in the estimation duration, tracking status is not updated
