Groupwise Database Maintenance Jobs

How can i see which actual job is running....and when it started.

We have all our jobs kick off at about 6pm when the offices close, but at the moment we have a job running apparently on the POA web interface but i dont know which one and why its running now.

No one has started a job but cant see which one it is...we are running on SUSE.

Cheers

Re: Groupwise Database Maintenance Jobs

mfoster,

I don't know a way to find out which job is running, if nothing in the POA logs shows anything. If you are sure this job should not be running, you can stop the POA, delete the ngwcheck.db in the PO directory and restart the POA.

Unless your PO is really big, and you are quick with the keyboard, they shouldn't notice.

Re: Groupwise Database Maintenance Jobs

Hi,

Just to add to this thread. You want to ensure that your GWCheck's are not kicking off at the same time and thus running concurrently. If multiple GWChecks are running concurrently you can run into some problems. Personally I kick off Nightly User Upkeep and determine what is the longest run time for this to complete. Then do my daily structure check to kick off after this has finished. Again determine longest run time on this routine and then set my weekly Content check to run outside of the window for the Structure check. In the root directory of your POA is a file xxxxchk.log file. The xxxx will represent the date. You can then open this file and see, not exactly what scheduled maintenance task is running, but based on the time a job was submitted to the ngwcheck.db. The task that has been added but not yet removed is the one that is still running. That will tell you which one is running so you can keep an eye on it for the future. If a scheduled maintenance task has "stuck" then Uwe's suggestion is really the only and fastest way to "kill" it.

Hope that's of some help for the future.

Cheers,
Laura Buckley
