    Circulation notice jobs don't run on Sundays

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    We are a hosted site. Reports ran on Saturday (at 4:15 AM) and today (Monday) (at 4:15 AM) but not on Sunday.

    The overdue and lost reports need to run all 7 days.

    The www_server, pc_server's, job daemon, etc., are being stopped at 2 AM on Sunday morning because the weekly cold backup occurs at that time. The backup is still running at 4:15 AM when the p_cir_51 Overdue/Lost jobs would normally run, therefore, the jobd is still down and the jobs are not released from the job_list.

    In view of the fact that the notices not produced on Sunday at 4:15 AM *are* produced on Monday at 4:15 AM, it was agreed that not running the jobs on Sunday is not really a problem.

    The backups are specified in the root crontab:

    # Exlibris Backup Package
    # Oracle Cold backup
    0 02 * * 0 /exlibris/backup/scripts/exec_backup_main a1

    # Oracle Hot backup
    0 02 * * 1,3,5 /exlibris/backup/scripts/exec_backup_main a2

    # Oracle Archive backup
    0 02 * * 2,4,6 /exlibris/backup/scripts/exec_backup_main a3

    Note: These are the same entries we see in the Backup Package Guide on the Doc Portal.
