When I look at syslog it shows the fine generator runs at :05 and :40 every hour.
My understanding was that the lock file was only present when it was actively running. I tested that today at 16:40 and it was present for about 90 seconds or so before deleting itself. As far as attempting to run the command sudo /openils/bin/fine_generator.pl as root, I get the response bootstrap config required. However, that is the same response I had gotten after a restart of the server in the past when it was working properly. And when I tried to research that response, I couldn't find anything useful in the forums, and since it was working correctly as a cronjob I didn't pursue it. -Jon On Mon, Apr 1, 2019 at 3:39 PM Jason Stephenson <ja...@sigio.com> wrote: > On 4/1/19 4:50 PM, JonGeorg SageLibrary wrote: > > No, there is no /tmp/generate_fines-LOCK file. > > > > Yes, I get a PID when running sudo pgrep -af fine > > You should get more than a PID.
