There are many scenarios where multiple dependent jobs (workunits) need to run in a particular sequence to complete a task. Within HPCC Systems, these jobs are referred to as “workunits.” The workunit performs specific tasks on Thor (the Data Refinery Engine in HPCC Systems), such as building a keyfile, analyzing data, spraying data onto Thor, and other tasks. The Universal Workunit Scheduler provides a way to schedule one or more streams or work within HPCC Systems. More information on this topic can be found in the ‘Tips & Tricks’ section of the Community HPCC Systems Forum.
