What is Control-M?
Control-M helps to create or manage complex workload automation which means, it helps to run the application, scripts on different types of servers. Control-M gives facility to create really complex workflows.
1.Control-M EM Client or Web Based Self Service
Control-M EM client has to be installed as an application either on laptop or the server which can be jump host server. This will be connected to the Control-M environment.
Control-M also provides a web-based interface which is the light version of Control-M EM client. Since it is a light version of Control-M EM client, it doesn’t provide all the functionalities but it helps to access and monitor jobs. This can be accessed on a web-based interface or on mobile.
Control-M EM client can be accessed individually or through the jump host server where multiple members can access it.
2.Control-M Enterprise Manager (EM)
Control-M EM takes care of the communication between Control-M EM client and Control-M/Server. When a job needs to be managed or accessed, a user has to request the Control-M EM client. It is the responsibility of the Control-M EM client to pass the request to the Control-M server. Control-M server is the heart of the processing system as it manages and executes all the jobs created and requested by the user.
Control-M server has to communicate with the agent and that agent is known as Control-M Agent. Control-M Agents are installed on all the machines which have Control-M applications. Control-M server needs to interact with Control-M Agents. Control-M Agents are installed on application servers. The applications run on these servers. These applications can be web-based or scripts like informatica, Linux, etc. Control-M Agents is responsible for running the script and sending it to the Control-M server. Then the server sends the information to the Control-M EM which sends it to the user.
Control-M Configuration Manager
Control-M Configuration Manager is also known as CCM. Using CCM lots of admin activities can be performed. Using CCM, admins can discover new agents if they are installed on any of the machines. They can also setup Control-M Control Modules. They can configure control modules. Control-M 9 is the advanced version of this. Control-M Configuration Manager is a part of Control-M EM or Control-M EM client. There is another component called Control-M Reporting. This helps you to see the history of job execution.
Control-M Cluster Server
Cluster server is the combination of individual servers. To form a cluster server using the two individual servers, we need a cluster software which is RHEL or VERITAS if you are having Linux. Cluster acts as a single machine between two nodes. These two nodes then have a single IP address and a single hostname known as Logical IP or Logical hostname.
Logical IP: This is called logical IP because it redirects to node 1 or node 2 based on which server is available.
Logical Hostname: This is called logical hostname because it redirects to node 1 or node 2 based on which server is currently available.
Shared Storage: When the data is uploaded in shared storage there is a high availability of having the data safe with us as this can be accessed by both the nodes. If the data is uploaded in either of the nodes without using the shared data then you will lose your data if that node is not available.
Control-M can automate and orchestrate the delivery of critical business services in a flash. Build dev and ops collaboration, that’s more powerful than a locomotive. Keep the data pipelines that power the business services flowing faster than the speed of sound.
