Issue/Introduction

When running a job that has a purposeful loop, receiving error:
U00010037 Object: 'OBJECT.NAME', client: '0001': processing interrupted, possible loop! Script processing will continue in '008' seconds.
U00010037 Object: 'OBJECT.NAME', client: '0001': processing interrupted, possible loop! Script processing will continue in '004' seconds.
U00010037 Object: 'OBJECT.NAME', client: '0001': processing interrupted, possible loop! Script processing will continue in '002' seconds.
U00010037 Object: 'OBJECT.NAME', client: '0001': processing interrupted, possible loop! Script processing will continue in '001' seconds.

Cause

This is caused by a safety mechanism to avoid overloading a system when there is a infinite loop put in place, which can easily crash a system.  More information can be found here: https://docs.automic.com/documentation/webhelp/english/AA/12.3/DOCU/12.3/Automic%20Automation%20Guides/help.htm#AWA/Variables/UC_SYSTEM_SETTINGS/UC_SYSTEM_SCR_LOOPCHK_TIME.htm

Resolution

If loop is purposefully put into an object and it needs to run more quickly, you can do the following:

1) Log into client 0
2) Open UC_SYSTEM_SETTINGS
3) Update the variable SCR_LOOPCHK_TIME to a higher number (default is 5)

Do be careful with this method as it can cause more load on the system the higher the value is.  This can also cause major disruptions more quickly in the event of an infinite loop.
