    Changing frequency of export job running

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    Description:
    We have bib and item export jobs running every five minutes -- which causes our $alephe_scratch to become filled up. How can I change this? [ <Jerry Specht > ]

    Resolution:
    The intervals at which jobs run is controlled by $alephe_tab/job_list and ./job_list.conf (also accessible as util e/16/1 and 5).

    This is what your job_list has:

    00 D4 Y SYS01 p_export_marc SYS01
    01 D3 Y SYS01 p_export_marc SYS01
    02 D3 Y SYS01 p_export_marc SYS01
    03 D3 Y SYS01 p_export_marc SYS01
    04 D3 Y SYS01 p_export_marc SYS01
    05 D3 Y SYS01 p_export_marc SYS01
    06 D4 Y SYS01 p_export_marc SYS01


    00 D4 Y ABC50 p_export_item ABC50
    01 D3 Y ABC50 p_export_item ABC50
    02 D3 Y ABC50 p_export_item ABC50
    03 D3 Y ABC50 p_export_item ABC50
    04 D3 Y ABC50 p_export_item ABC50
    05 D3 Y ABC50 p_export_item ABC50
    06 D4 Y ABC50 p_export_item ABC50

    And this is what job_list.conf has:

    ! 1. Code
    ! 2. D(aily)
    ! 3. Start time
    ! 4. End time
    ! 5. Interval
    !
    !1 2 3 4 5
    !!----!-!!!!!-!!!!!-!!!!!
    D1 D 09:00 17:00 01:00
    D2 D 08:00 23:00 05:00
    D3 D 00:00 23:55 00:05
    D4 D 05:00 23:55 00:05


    To change the jobs to run every hour, you would change the job_list.conf D3 and D4 lines to:

    D3 D 00:00 23:55 01:00
    D4 D 05:00 23:55 01:00

    and then do util e/15/2 to kill the job daemon and util e/15/1 to restart it.
