a better way to monitor the async service RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone know of a way to monitor the ASYNC service to ensure workflows are processing. Recently our ASYNC service stopped processing workflows but the async service continued to run. Since the service did not stop our monitoring application (MOM) never knew anything was wrong with the service. We had to be notified by our clients which is sonmething we want to avoid. So my task is to find a way to ensure that workflows are processing.

    What I would like to know is if it is possible to create a workflow that places a file somewhere on a file share or sends an email or do something that we can monitor and watch for. The workflow would need to do this at an defined interval (i.e. every 1/2 hour) and the workflow would need to run indefinitely. Does anyone know of a way to do that with an out of the box implemenation of hosted CRM 4?

  • Hi,

    "Quick and dirty" hint:

    you can periodically restart the service using scheduler ;-)  During restart async service will recheck/continue its workflows. Hope helps..
