during longer Network Outages

  • Longer network timeouts are considered the duration of a few minutes and longer.
  • This needs a configuration with increased values for Heartbeat Timeout and Heartbeat Period with the Process Class that is assigned the job.
    • The Agent should get a long Heartbeat Timeout (longer than the assumed network outage).
    • Heartbeat Period should also have a higher value than by default, since every failed connection attempt is logged by the Master and thus the protocol becomes unnecessarily large.
    • 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.
