Applications Manager allows the use of 'awexe' calls to accomplish tasks like updating subvars to getting a list of current jobs in the backlog. These can be used both inside or outside of Applications Manager jobs.
However, the Applications Manager AgentService process allows only 5 threads to be used for 'awexe' calls. What this means for our customers is that at anytime only 5 concurrent awexe calls can be running. Also, depending on the nature of the call, some of these calls can take several minutes to run (awexe jq/jh, etc.).
If more than 5 calls have been issued, they simply wait till they have a chance to run when one of the older calls have finished. Depending on the frequency and nature of these calls this can cause a possible bottle-neck and slow things down.
Cause type: By design Root Cause: A maximum of 5 threads allowed for 'awexe' calls.
