    Batch jobs don't run

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23

    Problem Symptoms:
    Batch jobs don't run:

    1. Neither GUI-submitted jobs nor job_list jobs run;
    2. Batch Log tab in GUI Task Manager is empty;
    3. "ls -lrt XXX01*" in $alephe_scratch (where XXX01 is the library) gets no results for today.

    util c/1 showed lib_batch process was not running.

    1. Do util c/8 to delete all jobs waiting to run which are duplicates. (If job has come from the job_list, tonight's run should process the records which should have been processed today.)

    2. Do util c/2 to start the batch queue and process the jobs waiting to run.

    Additional Information

    * If GUI-submitted jobs run but job_list jobs do not, see  article job_list job doesn't run

    * If util c/1 shows that lib_batch is running but jobs are not running, see articlee Batch queue not processing jobs; aleph_shutdown stalls shutting down batch que  .
