Scheduling randomly stops

Hello everybody,

we have serious problems with our schedulings on our BI Plattform. We are actually on BI 4.2 SP 03 P 2

but the Problem exists since Version 4.1. As a Server we use Windows Server 2008 R2. We have severals schedulings spread over the night. Sometimes suddenly the schedulings stop. There is no error and all the servers are running. Even in the Windows Event log there are no errors.

Is there anybody else with this problem? Or with any other stability problems on the BI Plattform?

Thanks and best regards

I wonder if you could use this trace utility to diagnose the problem:

Do you have the following added to your BI4.2 AdaptiveJobServer(s) Command Line Parameters in CMC?

-RequestTimeoutMinutes 60 -type outproc

no I've not added the parameter yet. What would be the effect?

I've forgotten to mention that when we restart the Server, all missed schedulings are repeated automatically.


Those settings are left over from XI3.1 aren't they? For BI4.1 forward, the recommendation is to set the Maximum Child Requests option to 1 to get the same behavior as -type outproc.

Although I do think that the -RequestTimeoutMinutes setting may be an issue because I have observed JobServerChildren stuck in a shutting down state.

That means all those schedules were in Pending state. As Jin suggested add the OutProc parameter in the commandline of the JOb server so that each schedule will be assigned to individual Job server child process.
