  • If the Master successfully re-connects to the Agent within the grace period then
    • running tasks will be continued and completed by the Agent.
    • the task status and execution result will be reported to the Master.
  • In case of reconciliation the task status, log information and execution result are available for the Master and are visible with JOC.

Tasks won't be killed even during longer


Network Outages

  • Longer network timeouts are considered the duration of a few minutes and longer.
  • This needs a special configuration at configuration with increased values for Heartbeat Timeout and Heartbeat Period with the Process Class which that is assigned to the Jobjob.
    • The Agent should get a very long Heartbeat Timeout (longer than the assumed network outage).
    • Heartbeat Period should also have a higher value in this casethan by default, since every failed connection attempt is logged by the master Master and thus the protocol becomes unnecessarily large, but it is not absolutely necessary..
    • Example
      • To cover a 2 hours's network outage with the Master contacting the Agent every 2 minutes specify: heartbeat_timeout="7200" heartbeat_period="120"
      • Higher values than this are accepted. Please consider that the Heartbeat Period specifies the duration after which the result, e.g. the job execution history, is available with the Master. Higher values therefore delay delivery of the job execution history.


  • The heartbeat settings can be configured with the Process Classes that specify the Agent connection. 
  • The configuration is located with the Master, no configuration items are stored with the Agent.
