An Introduction To Job Server in Infor CRM (Saleslogix)
The Introduction to Job Server in Infor CRM (Saleslogix) document provides an overview of Job Server, it's architecture, and how to use. The Job Server enables you to schedule single and recurring tasks for immediate or delayed execution, either manually or dynamically at run time. It executes tasks out of process, freeing up worker threads and memory for client sessions. Good candidates for this are long running tasks and resource intensive tasks.
- Long running tasks – Offload long running tasks to the Job Server so they run asynchronously. When user sessions do not have to wait for long running processes to complete, you will see fewer request time outs.
- Intensive tasks - Eliminate competition for computing resources by offloading processing/memory intensive tasks to the Job Server. The Job Server runs in a different process from the Web Host and thus has a separate thread pool. It can even be located on a separate server.
The Job Server is a shared service that can be consumed by any SalesLogix adaptive client, including Web, Windows, and Mobile. In the base product, Job Server is required for roll over of incomplete activities and updating remaining days of contracts. Web Client features that use Job Server are updating opportunities and updating and deleting leads from the Task Pane.
