nnCronLite skipping scheduled tasks

Postby paul.mckee » Wed, 05 Jan 2005, 19:46

nnCronLite was successfully installed, setup, and launched on a WinXP system. The cron.tab contains 5 processes with systematic starts from every 2-5min to 2 times daily. This setup works perfectly for a time, but then begins to spuratically missing processes without any explanation or pattern. It doesn't only miss the 2 and 5min processes, but also the daily processes at times. When the cron is stopped and then restarted, it works perfectly again for a few days(no pattern here either), then begins missing processes again.

Is this a know bug? Would the full version nnCron correct this problem?
Any comments appreciated. :?

No, this is not a known issue. Which nnCron LITE version do you use? I think you should look into 'cron.out' and logs when nnCron LITE starts to skip the tasks. If there is smth unusual?

I am using the latest nnCronLite v1.16 Build 106.16.10.2003. Once started it will run as scheduled for at least 3 days before beginning to skip processes. For a process scheduled every 2min, the skips start with every other, then progressively get worse. Same with processes scheduled every 5min. I can tell nothing from the cron.out file except for the version and build info. All other info. I get is from the .log files; new one generated every day.
Any suggestions? thanks.

No suggestions still. Let's try to investigate this further. Please, show us the contents of your 'cron.tab' and two or three log files - with and without skipped tasks. Ah... BTW, I think this is a good idea to take a look at your cron.ini as well...

You can send me these files privately to support@nncron.ru if you don't like to post them in the forum.
