NPrinting Multiple Task Executions Stuck on "Queued"

Hi ,  

I running on Nprinting April 2019 release.

1. I am encountering an issue where when i reload the meta data of a different App ( Local connection ) , i cannot publish the report at the same time. If there was a running task  to Publish a report , and i queue a new task to Generate a connection cache for example for a different app than the one I'm publishing the report for , the request that came after get queued until the first request is done.  However this is a problem though because my cache generation takes a while ( heavy calculations in the model) and that means the publishing of other reports stay on queued status until i manually restart the QlikNprinting scheduler service.  also at that time the CPU usage is spikes at over 90 % and drops and then nothing happens .

2. When the CPU and memory drops , the logs say that the engine is offline , however the Qlik Nprinting Engine Service is running . What would cause the Engine to go offline when the window service is running ? 
see attached logs with errors 


3. Eventually i had to restart the Nprinting services and still nothing happened, the task execution showed 3 running tasks, with a CPU of 8% and memory usage of 11% ( how is this possible with 3 tasks running ?) 
Running with NO CPU Usage2.png

4. After restarting the Nprinting services , there was no improvment and i had to restart , then it picked up the tasks where it was left off and ran a few publish report task , when i queued the cache generation the whole cycle restarted again : running tasks no CPU usage , no logs update

Re: NPrinting Multiple Task Executions Stuck on "Queued"

Since you are using local connection you have no resource control. You have to assume that the nprinting engine server is able to open qlikview app as many times as many cpu you have. I an assuming straight away that you simply have resource management issue.
Your issue in my opinion is a case for experienced nprinting consultant!
Why you are not using qvp connection?

Re: NPrinting Multiple Task Executions Stuck on "Queued"

Hello @jtm3004 

I noticed this mention in the log file.

Qlik.NPrinting.Common19.9.5.0Qlik.NPrinting.Common.Messages.ContentResolutionRabbitTopology20190513T100229.346+02:00WARNSERVER00000000Failed 3 times to send response to scheduler for request 62b7677a-00c9-4f87-99f7-ba679b4eeb42 of connection navigator=qlikview;documentpath="Z:\Folder\Sub Folder\My App\My App.qvw".

The Z drive in my opinion may be a mapped drive and is not a supported path method. 

https://help.qlik.com/en-US/nprinting/April2019/Content/NPrinting/AdministeringQVNprinting/Folder-de...

Switch to a path that the NPrinting service account can access in order to make the connection normally.

ie: "\\myqlikviewserver\folder\subfolder\myapp\mqappqvw"

You must grant the NP service account access to this path via Windows folder sharing and NTFS file security or switch to a QVP path. The NP service account must also have access to the QVW on the QV server if using QVP. This can be configured on the QMC by publishing/distributing the qvw to the NP service account or mounting the QVWs folder and ensuring the NP service account has permission via the QMC to open the mounted folder.

The error message indicates that your NP service account cannot open the QVW.

H Frank ,

Thank you. the file is actually located on the E drive on the Nprinting server and i just renamed it to share the logs ( i did not realize that i could be misleading) . 

Also im using a local connection not a qvp . I'm getting this error even when i use a model that is 30 MB in size with no calculations. it actually have the same behavior .

Re: NPrinting Multiple Task Executions Stuck on "Queued"

I suggest checking this article next.

It sounds like you 'may' only have a single core on your system.

There are other point in the article for you to review as well.

Hope this helps...

Re: NPrinting Multiple Task Executions Stuck on "Queued"

Hi,

The Qlik NPrinting Scheduler plans the task to be executed based on the available resources, so it could be that some tasks are in running status and other are in queued. 

To @Frank_S  and @Lech_Miszkiewicz  suggestions I suggest to give a check at the page https://help.qlik.com/en-US/nprinting/April2019/Content/NPrinting/DeployingQVNprinting/Performance.h....

Another suggestion is to create a QlikView document specific for reporting with only the data and the charts that are needed to generate the reports. Move also all calculation to the reload script where possible instead of leave the formulas in the charts. All those suggestions will help to use less HW resources and speed up the tasks.

Best Regards,

Ruggero

Re: NPrinting Multiple Task Executions Stuck on "Queued"

Hi Lech , 

we used the qvp connection , it improved things a bit for about 2hours and then we were back to square one. Tasks were not running and there was this message in the logs.

Re: NPrinting Multiple Task Executions Stuck on "Queued"

Hi,

Based on the logs I suppose you are having issues with the document. Check that it doesn't have unsupported things like macros or triggers. The issues with the document cause a crash of the local QlikView Desktop so the report generation stops.

Follow my suggestion and create the simpler document possible with only data and charts used for reporting.

Best Regards,

ruggero

Re: NPrinting Multiple Task Executions Stuck on "Queued"

Hi Ruggero, 

I have removed the default selections on the document and reloaded the connection. this is a document with only 10 objects that i am using in the Nprinting report. I reloaded the connection the first time and it took about 6 minute to load the cache (qvp connection ) ,

exec1.png

then i tried to reload the connection again now it is stuck on and cannot even verify the connection

It looks like it cannot even verify the license on the qlikview server. 

Please see logs below

Re: NPrinting Multiple Task Executions Stuck on "Queued"

Hi @Ruggero_Piccoli  

 

I removed all the triggers and defaults selection. the document only has about 10 objects that i am using in the Nprinting report . I reloaded the connection the first time and it took about 6 minutes as shown below 

exec1.png

Then i reloaded the second time it was stuck for a while and when i ran the verification i just found out that it could not even verify the connection successfully ( this is happening a lot not only on this document ) 

ggg.pngbelow is what i have found in the logs

Please note that the Nprinting server is an Azure server and the qlikview server is a local server. Not sure if it is related to the issue that i am encountering . but i have tried the same in local environment-our development environment ( Nprinting and qlikview servers both local )
