When a process is running in foreground, the GUI does an excellent job of giving feedback to the user as to which "step" the job is running and how much data is processing through the active tools. When that same job is scheduled, the amount of information is limited to when the job began execution.
If a tool was able to give checkpoint status out to the user, we could better monitor the progress of scheduled jobs. The visibility to the job is most important for long running jobs. We've unfortunately had instances where we have had to cancel jobs and to restart them not knowing how close or how far from finishing they were.
