Accessing the execution task list


In the Menu tree view, click Job Conductor to display the list of scheduled tasks that will deploy and execute Jobs on a remote server.
When you access this list for the first time, no task shows on the list.
You can customize the number of tasks per page by changing the count in the field next to the Last Page button. It is recommended to keep this count as low as you can keep in your scenario, to reduce the load of Tomcat.
The default Job Conductor page provides the following information:

Information noteNote: Frozen exec will require a manual resume operation.
Information noteWarning: If the threshold for simultaneous executions is exceeded (by default more than 20 executions at the time), all simultaneous executions above the threshold will acquire the status "awaiting execution".

To reset the threshold according to your needs, look for in the installation folders of Talend Administration Center and change the threshold accordingly in the following parameter: org.quartz.threadPool.threadCount = 20
