Scheduled tasks keep quilting at midnight

Aaron Fickes asked on August 9, 2016 16:55

Multiple scheduled tasks quit at midnight and I have to go back in to each task and click save to reenable them for the day. I do not see anything in the task that would make it only run for a day as all of the days are selected in the task.

Thanks, Chris

Hi, If you are using Kentico 9 - there was, regrettably a bug. So, maybe this is the cause. It was fixed in 9.0.10 hotfix:

"Scheduler - Infinite loop when planning the next run time of scheduled tasks in rare cases Planning of the next run time for scheduled tasks resulted in an infinite loop in rare cases. This could cause very high CPU usage on the server."

This bug occurred mostly around midnight - so, maybe it is preventing the other tasks from being executed too.

Chris, do you have users/sessions at midnight? Kentico will not trigger scheduled task execution if there is no requests.

Hi Chris

You can configure the scheduler to process tasks regularly according to an automatic internal timer, regardless of website activity. To enable this mode, add the CMSUseAutomaticScheduler key into the /configuration/appSettings section of your web.config file:

<add key="CMSUseAutomaticScheduler" value="true" />

Hi Rui,

I have added the key to the web config and the process still failed to continue after midnight. Any other ideas why this may be happening?

Thanks, Chris
