Windows 2003 server software or tool to stop and start a scheduled tasks if they hang
Posted on 2011-03-21
We have some scheduled tasks set to run on a server that are database import/export related. To cut a long story short the database and scheduled tasks are written by a 3rd party, who don't see any issues with the jobs. Problem is these jobs just stop from time to time and need to be restarted. Once restarted the jobs run fine, but the 3rd party doesn't want to investigate - support is currently being looked at but this still needs to happen.
All that said the jobs simply need to be restarted, and I am looking for some software or a tool that we can use to moitor these jobs and restart them if they are running for longer than 15 minutes. Would be fine to do this manually, but this tends to happen around 5:00 - 7:00am in the morning.
Anyway if someone knows of a piece of software or a tool to sort this out let me know.
