    Time Constraint not working for long running tasks

    John Oggenfuss


      Hi,

       

      I have a task which is dependent on 15 other tasks finishing before it runs.  Those 15 other tasks are long running tasks that have been taking anywhere from 9 hours to 14 hours to complete.  All 15 tasks start at the same time, so they all complete roughly within 5 hours of each other.

       

      My problem is the task which is dependent on those 15 tasks does not get kicked off.  We set up the task so that it is started "On Multiple Events Completed" and each tasks is set to "Task Finished Trigger".  We also have the Time Constraint value of the task for 720 minutes.  My assumption is that as long as the 15 tasks complete within the 12 hour window (720 minutes) then this task should start.  But this isn't the case.  In today's run, all 15 of the tasks finished between 6:00 AM and 10:00 AM, but the next task did not start.

       

      We are running on version 11.20.12235.0 on a 64-bit machine with 32 cores and 512 GB of memory.

       

      Any help would be appreciated.
