Managing job queues

Job queue (Jnnn) processes execute jobs in the job queue.For each instance ,these job queue processes are dynamically spawned by a coordinator job queue (CJQ0) background process. The coordinator periodically selects jobs that are ready to run from the jobs shown in the DBA_JOBS view. It orders them by time, and then spawns Jnnn processes to run the selected jobs. Each Jnnn process executes one of the selected jobs.

The JOB_QUEUE_PROCESSES initialization parameter controls whether a coordinator job queue process is started by an instance.

When a Jnnn process finishes execution of a job, it polls for another job to execute. If there are no jobs selected for execution, it enters an idle state, but wakes up periodically to poll again. If, after a predetermined number of tries, it still finds no jobs to execute, it terminates.

Jobs can be exported and imported.


If the job number of a job you want to import matches the number of a job already existing in the database, you will not be allowed to import that job. Submit the job as a new job in the database.

Only a job's owner can alter the job, force the job to run, or remove the job from the queue.

Database Links and Jobs

If you submit a job that uses a database link, the link must include a username and password. Anonymous database links will not succeed.

Job Queue Locks

Oracle uses job queue locks to ensure that a job is executed in only one session at a time. When a job is being run, its session acquires a job queue (JQ) lock for that job. You can use the locking views in the data dictionary to examine information about locks currently held by sessions.

The following query lists the session identifier, lock type, and lock identifiers for all sessions holding JQ locks:




If a job returns an error while Oracle is attempting to execute it, Oracle tries to execute it again. The first attempt is made after one minute, the second attempt after two minutes, the third after four minutes, and so on, with the interval doubling between each attempt. If the job fails 16 times, Oracle automatically marks the job as broken and no longer tries to execute it. However, between attempts, you have the opportunity to correct the problem that is preventing the job from running. This will not disturb the retry cycle, and Oracle will eventually attempt to run the job again.

Terminating a Job

You can terminate a running job by marking the job as broken, identifying the session running the job, and disconnecting that session. You should mark the job as broken, so that Oracle does not attempt to run the job again.
