You can run common database operations in batches, schedule common database operations to run in batches on multiple databases, and schedule an operation to run on a single database at a particular time.

Batch operations start immediately and operate on multiple databases.

Scheduled batch operations start at a time that you specify and operate on multiple databases.

Scheduled operations start at a time that you specify and operate on a single database.

Batch operations and batch scheduled operations let you quickly perform the same action on multiple databases. Scheduling operations singly or in batches allows you to run long or CPU-intensive processes at optimum times for the system load.

You can perform batch processing with the following operations and tasks.

Start, stop, and restart databases.

Add databases to Favorites.

Schedule external and snapshot backups.

Batch recover databases from last state.

Perform updates.

Enable-Disable databases.

You can schedule a start time window for each task, but the order in which tasks run is not guaranteed. You cannot schedule operations on a recurring basis.
