Jobs are used extensively by SQL Server itself; replication even depends on them. Jobs have a status, which can be logged. Jobs interact with operators, which I explain in a moment. Jobs can also record their history automatically, which you can query. Jobs are run by the SQL Server Agent service. If that service is not started or does not have an account associated with it that is allowed to perform the tasks, they will not run. I explain jobs in greater detail in Chapter 5.

SOS and Meta Data To facilitate easy access to the operating system and thread scheduling, Microsoft has replaced its previous OS layer interaction process (UMS) with the SQL OS (SOS) process.
