Meetup Recap: Workload Management in Automation 360

During this virtual meetup, we discussed queues, device pools, workload package, and work items prioritization.

Concepts:

Queue: A queue is one of the main building blocks of Workload Management (WLM). A queue holds data known as Work Items for further processing. The system distributes these Work Items to individual unattended Bot Runners in a device pool for processing.

Device Pool: Device pools provide built-in High Availability for the Bot Runner machines. You are not tied to a single Bot Runner machine, so if your Bot Runner machine is unavailable for any reason, your automation is not affected. The scheduled automation will automatically run on the next available Bot Runner machine, thereby providing high availability.

Running a Bot with Queue: Use this feature to collectively process all work items of a queue across all the Bot Runners present in one or more device pools.

Here are the links to packages showcased during the session.

Conclusion:

Workload Management is useful to configure Automation 360 for effective automatic distribution of workload among the bot runners.
