After loading a QlikView App, the distribution just waits

Has anybody any idea why the load and distribute of an app just seems to sit and wait for a long time?

Using QV 11 on windows 2012 server

Extract from log file below shows a wait of 28 minutes from when the document was ready to the start of publication.

At one point this function was taking about 9 minutes in total, now it is around 40 minutes.

I have removed all recipients and then re-installed them, but no difference, again the system just waits and waits

Re: After loading a QlikView App, the distribution just waits

as per my knowledge it's take some time to concatenate ur current data with ur old data files.

Re: After loading a QlikView App, the distribution just waits

All data is loaded, I am simply doing a distribution at this point, so there is no concatenation of old and new data.

I have run the job again now, and exactly the same has happened again -  a wait of 28 minutes.

At this point the distrbution runs without problems.

Should I remove the document from Access Point or something like that?

Re: After loading a QlikView App, the distribution just waits

You can enable Trace logging to get more details between the two logged lines (done in the config file of the Distribution Service).  Warning! This will increase logging dramatically. Please just enable it temporarily to figure the issue and then disable again.

You will now see logged Information rows stating with "TRACE". Also there are a number of new log files created on disc in the same folder as the TaskLog.txt.

I hope this can help you to identify what is taking so much time.

I have now run a load with the TRACE enabled but cannot see any helpful information from the log file:

There still appears a 28 minute idle time.

Re: After loading a QlikView App, the distribution just waits

The time is all used in BeginEndstreams.

What happens here is three things:

Reset Bookmarks - if you don't have any this will do nothing

Handle Always One Selected - if you don't use this this will do nothing

Create folder where the document will be saved.

I would recommend you trying to remove bookmarks and/or Always one selected to get you closer to find out what is tha root cause.

Hopefully this will get you closer to the answer.

Re: After loading a QlikView App, the distribution just waits

The only thing that I can see that is different from other apps is that in this one I have added to "Document Properties" "Field Event Triggers".

For 3 fields I have added Actions when OnSelect, but surely these are only activated by the user making a selection, not in Publisher?


I have now removed a non-used macro (now empty) and also removed hidden sheets.

Again the load and distribute has taken 28 minutes...


Otherwise,
I have no bookmarks.

I am unsure as to what you mean by "Handle Always One Selected".

The folder for saving the document is the same as for all other documents

Re: After loading a QlikView App, the distribution just waits

Make sure that you don't have any Listbox which has checked "Always One Selected Value".

And you are right, events triggers should not come in to play for Publisher.

Re: After loading a QlikView App, the distribution just waits

No list boxes have "Always One Selected Value".

I have created a copy of the app, and loaded in exactly the same way as the original.

No effect - still 28 minute delay.

Next - I have removed all of the Actions on Event triggers and still I have a 28 minute wait.

What more can I remove that may or may not affect this?
