Publisher daily logs are not written at midnight

Dear all,

I wrote an application to automically run a job (using EDX). Then checking the result of this job by looking at the logs in the server.

This is working fine If I don't run a job between two days ( e.g. 11:55 PM untill 12:15 AM the following day).

In this case nothing is written in the newly created log.

I made a test by changing the time of the dev server. Then I ran a job at 11:55 PM.

Now it is 12:35 AM and the daily log is empty (It exists but empty): it contains following string:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="LogReformatv2.xsl"?>


The log is now written at 12:45 AM. Which is strange no ?

Do you know any process that could make Publisher to wait before commiting everything in the Logs ?

Maybe the backup process of QVPR which occurs at 00:00 ?

I'm talking about the logs located into "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\QlikTech\Publisher\ExecutionService\Log"

Thanks in advance for your help.

Don't know whether this could have something to do with it (as I'm only using the "Standard Publisher"), but there IS an issue concerning logfiles with reloads (BUG 23536) which should be resolved in SR2 (which was announced to me - by support member - to be released still this year). It's jut a guess, but perhaps it's helpful..

Thanks for your reply.

However this problem happened on 8.5 version of QVS. ( I forgot to mention it).

I solved the issue by adding a waiting routine in my script if the date changes. In this case It will wait for 45 minutes before having another look at the logs.
