File Trigger timeout parameter?

  • 1.  File Trigger timeout parameter?

    Posted 12-07-2015 08:39 PM

    I have many file triggers running on Windows agents, that are monitoring folders on an AS400 machine.  They work fine 99% of the time.  Occasionally one will fail with the "Scan failed" error.  If I resubmit the job it works.  I suspect there may just be intermittent slowness in the network or the server (either end), causing a timeout of the monitor.  Is there any parameter or configuration option to increase the timeout?  Or an automatic retry of the monitor if it gets a "scan failed"?

    You can use following 2 parameters in the Agent's agentparm.txt file

    1. filemonplugin.scan.retries=10 (default=1)

    2. filemonplugin.scan.retires.sleep=60000 (default is 10000 in milliseconds=10secs)
