Fusion 5.10

    Jobs and Scheduling

    Table of Contents

    A job is a runnable Fusion object that performs a specific activity. Datasource jobs, Spark jobs, and tasks are all types of jobs. Examples of the activities include:

    • Aggregating signal data

    • Training a shallow neural model and projecting each document onto the resulting vector embedding space

    • Loading data into a data source

    Job types

    Each job type is a type of Fusion object that you can run or schedule to be run.

    The Jobs manager

    The Jobs manager, available in the Fusion workspace at Collections > Jobs, provides a simple interface for viewing and scheduling jobs. You can also create tasks and Spark jobs here.


    You cannot create, run, or schedule datasource jobs in the Jobs manager. You must create them on the Datasources page, in the Index Workbench, or in the Quickstart. To run a datasource job, use the scheduler.
