Name Description

Task Scheduler Engine Communication

A Task Scheduler engine communicates with the Task Scheduler service to execute tasks. The service creates a task engine to run tasks. 

Task Scheduler Engine Launching

A task engine starts when a task is run for a specified principal (the security context the task runs under).

Task Scheduler Engine Quotas

The Task Scheduler engine manages a queue of tasks that are scheduled to run. A task is put in the queue when the service determines the task should run. The queue has a quota that defines the number of tasks allowed in the queue. The quota is defined in a registry key value.
