    Batch log in Task Manager yields "failed to read reply".

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph

    The batch log from the task manager in the GUI in ABC01 and ABC50 does not connect. We get "failed to read reply" error message. It is working in ABC10 and ABC60.

    Is there a maximum size of the file for the batch log to display in the Task Manager?

    The following grep (in abc01 $data_files) shows that the ABC01 batch_log has over 77,000 jobs in it:

    ABC01-ALEPH>>grep -c ' end' batch_log

    I think it is too big (24 meg.) for Task Manager to handle.

    I suggest that you do this for abc01:

    > dlib abc01
    > df1
    > mv batch_log batch.log.previous
    > touch batch_log

    Initially, the log will be empty, but once you submit jobs they should show up there.

    Then, the same for abc50.
