Troubleshooting Batch Processing

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)

The following notes may assist in troubleshooting the batch scheduler and batch processor on your batch server.

Examine log files

The batch scheduler and batch processor create log files under %ProgramData%\Flexera Software\Compliance\Logging\BatchProcessScheduler. Tasks go through the batch scheduler first, so you should first investigate BatchProcessScheduler.log. You can then use the ID given to each task to track processing results in BatchProcessor.log.

For a list of the status values that may be logged, and their meaning, see How Batch Scheduling and Processing Works.

Checking the state of batch processing

You can inspect the batch scheduler's view of what tasks are queued, executing, and recently completed by executing the following command:
ShadowHost.exe BatchProcessTaskConsole.exe list-tasks  
This command is equivalent to the following database query (which you could also use within Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio):
SELECT *FROM BatchProcessExecutionInfo bi
WHERE BatchProcessStatusID IN (1, 2, 3)
ORDER BY bi.StatusOrder, bi.DateOrder
For more information about using the list-tasks command in debugging, see Killing or Failing Tasks.

Checking the database record

You can use Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio to examine the contents of the BatchProcessExecution table (for details of the table columns, see FlexNet Manager Suite Schema Reference, available through the title page of online help). There is also a convenient view on this table, called BatchProcessExecutionInfo. This can be used to monitor the health of executing tasks, including those requested by Windows Scheduled Tasks.
