Job running in idle mode
« on: August 07, 2012, 01:07:57 PM »

As I understand Job in idle mode when the node is busy and then go into idleness the job start from the beginning everytime, is there any way to suspend the the job instead of killing the job ?

Thank you,

Hi Nabil,

Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to suspend the job executing in the node.
In fact, it is actually the node that is killed, not just the job. Then the node is restarted when the system is busy again.
This is however a geat suggestion, and I have registered it as a feature request JPPF-6 Improvements for nodes in idle mode.

To mitigate the inconvenience, I would recommend to make your tasks as small and as atomic as possible, so when the node is killed there will be as few tasks as possible to execute over again.
