I had something similar recently. Publisher usually executes reload in 30 min, and distributes (copies to another machine) in two or three additional minutes. In one case last week, the distribution portion took more than 30 min, although the reload took the expected time.
I don't know what's the reason. Worked fine before and after. Maybe some network issue (?)
Qlikview task hanging is a know issue and I think the case is already raised for the same. Meanwhile can you let me know the "Chunk size" value in the config file.
C:\Program Files\QlikView\Management Service\QVManagementService.exe.config
<add key="QMSChunkSize" value="100"/>
If the value is 100 then please change it to 20.
I've managed to identify the reason why the jobs were hanging:
- There was an issue on the server (this is something that I'm not clear of yet but essentially is the root of everything) and a couple of tasks that were running basically corrupted the qvds that they were being stored to (looks like they were only partially saved as the usual file size 2GB but it was just 650MB this time). As these qvds were used elsewhere it caused an adverse effect on other jobs which caused the rebuilds to hang
- Another thing that has happened since the 1am server problem on Saturday morning is that a qvd that usually gets overwritten (again around 2GB) is failing on the store. I removed the qvd that it was overwriting and it worked fine but seems to fail if the qvd already exists
Any ideas why the store would fail?
Nice to know you have found the issue.
The second bullet point you have mentioned is because of a file lock. Due to this it cannot overwrite that file.
This is something which I have faced in the past.
Solution was to delete and re-create that file OR sometimes had to restart the server for the lock to release.
