Definition: A group of similar items produced, processed, or gathered together and treated as a single unit.

What This Means: Tasks performed by a computer, in which processing-intensive activities are grouped and processed as units, rather than being processed immediately on demand. Examples of batch jobs in a PC are a printing request or an analysis of a website log. In larger commercial computers or servers, batch jobs are usually initiated by a system user. Some are defined to run automatically at a certain time.
