DMA Auto Cancel workflowsOpen in a New Window

Background

 

As DMA workflows execution are stateless on the DMA server end , there are cases where the target servers gets restarted accidently or the WEST (Workflow Execution ScripT ) dies or runs forever on the target during such events the DMA workflow execution would be always shown as running on the DMA application console.

Solution

To address such execution overrun, Auto Cancel was introduced as enhancement from the DMA ultimate 10.40 release.

By default this feature is not enabled during new install or upgrade.

To enable this feature two flags needs to be appended to the dma.xml File

( /opt/hp/dma/server/tomcat/conf/Catalina/localhost/dma.xml).

com.hp.dma.core.action.CancelWorkflowNoUpdate" value="true"

"com.hp.dma.core.action.WorkflowExecutionTokenCleaner.CancelWorkflowNoUpdatePeriod" value="5400"

How does this work

If “com.hp.dma.core.action.CancelWorkflowNoUpdate" is set to true (default is false) then as per time period mentioned for "com.hp.dma.core.action.WorkflowExecutionTokenCleaner.CancelWorkflowNoUpdatePeriod" in secs, system will mark the workflow as auto cancelled in case of no update sent by target server to DMA server within that specified time period.

If the feature is enabled, a workflow will be automatically cancelled if it has not responded after the pre-defined time-out period.

 

 

      Note

Additionally DMA also provides a script ‘workflowsRunningForever.sh’** which is placed under the folder /opt/hp/dma/server/tomcat/webapps/dma/WEB-INF, can be run offline or using an external trigger. This script when executed , will list and mark workflow which meets the criteria for auto cancel as per time period mentioned for "com.hp.dma.core.action.WorkflowExecutionTokenCleaner.CancelWorkflowNoUpdatePeriod" in secs.

 

 

* Before editing dma.xml the dma service (service dma stop) needs to be shutdown.

** Usage: workflowsRunningForever.sh [-u] | [-update]

Where: providing the option (-u or -update) is not mandatory. If provided then this option will cancel all eligible workflows without prompting user's input. Else it will list the eligible workflows and then prompt user's input to cancel it or not.

Database and Middleware Automation Support Customer Forum!Open in a New Window

Hi, 

 

We have heard requests from our customers to offer support via the community forums. We are starting today with a Support Customer Forum for our Database and Middleware Automation product.   

 

The Forum is called: Database and Middleware Automation Support Customer Forum

 

This forum will only be accessible to those Customers & HP Partners who have a valid support contract. This is an additional service for those customers who have a valid support contract on these products.

 

If you have a valid support contract in your HP Passport profile then you will see this forum in the list of forums in the Database and Middleware Automation category. 

 

We also have HP Database and Middleware Automation support engineers monitoring this forums and ready to address your questions. 

 

We have created an automatic process, which will check if there is a valid support contract on logon to the community. It is essential that customers link a valid support contract to their HP Passport profile.

 

 Expect the following activities in the Support Customer Forum: 

 

  • Expert sessions on product related topics via short videos and the ability to ask questions related to the specific session ;
  • Tips and tricks;
  • Information which will improve users knowledge of Database and Middleware Automation.
  • Discussions with support experts.

We are also giving customers the possibility to request which activities they would like to see in this forum.  

 

We encourage customers to try out this method of support rather than placing a telephone call or logging an online ticket. We do realize there will be situations where a support call is necessary, where we need to do more research. 

 

However, we are hoping that customers will use this forum to get information or help on HP Database and Middleware Automation.

 

As we look to the future, we believe this is a medium where we can provide quick support, share knowledge and help customers use the HP Database and Middleware Automation product to run their businesses optimally.  

 

We will still be monitoring the existing public Database and Middleware Automation Practitioners forum, but we will prioritize questions coming into the Database and Middleware Automation Support Customer Forum  from our Customers & Partners that have a support contract.

 

The prerequisite in accessing this new forum will be a valid support contract. Once a valid support contract is linked a users’ HP Passport account, access Database and Middleware Automation Support Customer Forum  should be visible.

 

If access is not granted, please send an email to swcommunity@hp.com and include the valid support contract number along with a company email address and the user’s screen name in the community. 

 

We hope we can use this forum to build a closer relationship and help build customers’ knowledge on the HP Database and Middleware Automation Product.  

 

For more information on our support customer forums and how to add your support agreement ID (SAID) to your HP Passport profile please click here.

 

For any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to ask via swcommunity@hp.com  or reply to this post. 

Greetings,
