Under some circumstances Scheduled Tasks created with the Manage Scheduled Tasks function in the CA API Gateway Policy Manager do not function correctly or require a higher Thread Count to run consistently. 


The possible cause of this issue may be due to the default Thread Count used by the Scheduler being too low


Release : 9.x

Component : CA API Gateway


In scenarios where the Scheduled Tasks stop functioning or are not consistently running, do the following:

  1. Disable the current Scheduled Task(s) that are not functioning properly and recreate the Scheduled Task with a fresh job. 
  2. Increase the Number of worker threads for the Scheduler with the scheduledTask.maxThreads Cluster Wide Property. In your Gateway Policy Manager Go to Tasks --> Global Settings --> Manage Cluster Wide Properties and add the scheduledTask.maxThreads with a value of 20. Some trial and error may be necessary to properly size the Threads depending on your Scheduled Tasks load.
