job processor causing more significant effects of when inventor is crashing

Status: Future Consideration
by *Expert Elite* on ‎12-05-2012 12:00 AM

this is an idea and a fix combo...


it seems that running the vault job processor & working in inventor / vault at the same time on the same machine can sometimes cause a more severe affect when inventor crashes. (& often this will cause broken vault add-ins)


can we have a review of the process that is used for the job processor, or improve the utility so that is does not use the inventor process.


could i suggest that perhaps in the interum that it may be possible to program the job processor to detect that if inventor is started,  the job processor should pause and warn the user that the two should not be run at the same time.

Mark, it is recommended that the Job Processor not be used on the same machine as a designer. It should be running on a dedicated machine so that it has all the system resources to process the job without interference to the designer.

would you like to consider the ideas put forward to minimise the downtime to users.

would you like to make note of the requirements clearly in all documentation to minimise the downtime to users.

can you make recommendations to users how to carry out this without having to purchase additional seats of inventor and vault?

autodesk must review and improve functionality around this. i had 3 separate workstations installations currupted to the point that a full reinstall was necessary on each. i can give more detail should you require.

currently i am setting up batch file / task scheduler to run job processor on user machine overnight. (when no other activity is being carried out).


requesting autodesk to review to potentially provide and document out of the box resources to allow users and admins to choose this scheduling from the job processor itself and from vault explorer config settings.


also note:

as part of the improved functionality we have been requesting please also consider the following post referring to error in job processing if files are managed by other server in replicated environment...
