Automic Workload Automation

  • 1.  AUTOFORECAST function V9

    Posted 10-05-2015 12:30 PM
    We run this script shortly after midnight every day.  It usually takes 15 minutes to execute because we like to project quite a few days of workload;

    :print "START: autoforecast request"
    :set &autoforecast# = autoforecast()
    :print "END:   autoforecast request"
    :print "Results from autoforecast (0 = successful): &autoforecast#"

    However once in a while the function gets stuck and leaves the script in a "Ready for generation" state.  Someone then has to manually unlock the autoforecast facility through the UI.  This is just an annoyance that we deal with once or twice a month.  I was wondering if anyone else had similar experiences with this function, or any advice?   I suppose we could back off on the run frequency and we could back off on the number of days we forecast....

    Hi petwir,

    I had the same experience in v9 when running an autoforecast script for 15 days. The frequency was very sporadic. I got this problem each 2/3 months maybe. After I changed the interval for 10 days, never happened again. But then again, I've also updated to v10...

    Can't tell you what solved it.
