We have a discussion going on, to know now exactly what the limits are on batch apex jobs. The docs are really not clear on this. In this document it states that "Up to five queued or active batch jobs are allowed for Apex".
But then in the governor limits doc it states that you can have up to 5 concurrently running batches and up to 100 Up to five queued or active batch jobs are allowed for Apex. batch jobs.
But now if you schedule an apex batch job through the interface and you schedule it to run every day for example then the status is queued.
So what is now the correct limit? do batch jobs that are in status queued counting to the 5 limit or to the 100 limit?
