Schedule background job with start condition

Dear SAPers,

I met a situation that a job is used to collect firefighter logs which scheduled to run hourly. Sometimes the logs' volume is huge so the job failed. When we notice that, we will separate the failed job into several jobs. So i was thinking to schedule the jobs to run one after one with the option "after job". However, the new manually scheduled job have to avoid the original hourly jobs' running. So i was wondering if there is any way to do it in SAP SM36?

Example: Job A runs each hour. 1PM, 2PM, 3PM, etc It failed on 2PM.

Job 1, 2, 3, 4 are the separated jobs for job A on 2PM.

How can i schedule these 1, 2, 3, 4 jobs to run one after one and also avoid job A runs on 3PM, or 4PM...

I hope i am clear about this. Thank you in advance for those would give me advice.

    Well... Why don't you simply schedule a job with 4 steps to run after your job A?...

    • No problem, unfortunately options for non-periodical jobs are limited, in the case that this becomes a mayor issue you can get your abaper to create a routine but i wouldn't bother if its not a regular occurance.
