Pending Cost EV Update Service

Can anyone tell me what exactly the Pending Cost EV Update Service does?


"Asynchronously applies external updates to the Pending Cost EV Updates service when updates cannot be made immediately" doesn't really help....

 

Thanks!

Re: Pending Cost EV Update Service

Good Day Erik, 

 

Please take a look to the following information:

 

Pending Cost EV Update Service

Type : Heavy

Module : Financial Management

 

Description : The service divides the earned/planned values into weekly buckets for active projects. This data is viewed only through the graph and data grid on the Project Cumulative Cost Metrics page (via the Analyze costs button on project overview). Cumulative cost metrics are stored in the table KDRV_COST_METRICS_BY_PERIOD. Cost Rollup Service adds projects to a queue (KCST_PENDING_EV_UPDATES) for this service. This service does not perform any rollup calculation.

 

Default interval : 1 hour

 

Driving table : KCST_PENDING_EV_UPDATES

 

Intermediate table: KCST_PENDING_EV_UPDATES_ERR

 

Trigger Condition : When cost rollup service runs for all active projects with a active workplan that have cost enabled, new entries are made in KCST_PENDING_EV_UPDATES.

 

Recommendation : If cost is not tracked for any project, this service may be disabled.

 

Impact of disabling service : On disabling this service, the Project Cumulative Cost Metrics are not accurate.

 

Hope it helps.

Carolina

Re: Pending Cost EV Update Service

Carolina, this is good info, thanks. Do you know if the service recalculates all the values for the entire project/timeframe whenever it runs? I ask because I'm trying to troubleshoot an instance where this graph looks wrong for one project and I don't know why. I do see some errors for this service, though.

Thanks!
