Jobs in GDC queue never start

  • Product: Voyager
  • Product Version: 8.0.0
  • Relevant for Installation Type: Dedicated-Direct; Direct; Local

Problem Symptoms

Jobs in Global Data Change Job Queue are never started - jobs just sit in the queue

Cause

jobd isn't running on the server for the database instance.

Resolution

  1. Connect to server via SSH or Telnet.
  2. ps -ef | grep jobd
  3. If there is no process for xxxdb listed, start the process:
    1. cd /m1/voyager/xxxdb/sbin
    2. ./Pjobd
  4. Check that process is running for xxxdb: ps -ef | grep jobd | grep xxxdb

Additional Information

If step 3.b. results in "Jobd is running on xxxdb. Please kill PID {PID} and restart the Pjobd program"

  1. Check for the referenced process: ps -ef | grep {PID}     [where {PID} is the PID in the message]. If a process with that PID is not running, continue.
  2. cat /m1/voyager/xxxdb/log/jobd.pid
  3. If the jobd.pid contains the PID from the message, then remove the jobd.pid file: rm -i jobd.pid
  4. Start jobd: /m1/voyager/xxxdb/sbin/Pjobd

If the process does not start, does not remain running after it's started, or Voyager server access is not available (Voyager TotalCare customers, for example), please open a Case with Support.
