Broadcasts and system down time

Paul Dowling shared this question 1 year ago

Hi,

Would you be able to help me out by providing some info around what happens to broadcasts during system downtime?

If Broadcasts are due to run and the system is down (e.g. upgrade) does Yellowfin attempt to run the Broadcast when it is started back up?

If it does try and send them on start up does it do anything to deal with a potential large backlog of broadcasts?

Any info you could provide around this area would be really helpful.


Thanks

Hi Paul,


That is a very good question.

Ok so what should be happening is, the schedule will not run for every missed broadcast, just the last one.

E.g. If you have a report that sends daily, and YF has been shut for 7 days, once you start it up, it will only re-run the last broadcast (not all 7).

However, one thing to note is, if you have 10 broadcasts all spaced to run throughout the day (e.g. 1pm, 2pm, 3pm..) when you start Yellowfin up after a few days it will attempt to catch up on the missed broadcasts and will try and run all 10 on startup, whatever it cannot run just goes into a queue.


Hope this helps!

Are you seeing any issues with schedules post start up?


Thanks,

No problems with schedules to report.
