  • 1.  Runtime resource connection losts

    Posted 04-29-2022 13:45
    Hello,

    What can be the best approach to resolve connection lost to runtime resources?

    Use of BAT file to reconnect resource PC works fine but I'm more of looking for an automated solution.

    Windows scheduler can help us here to trigger the BAT file but it is a static solution and it will keep triggering resource PC even for the instances when the bot has not lost connection.

    So trying to find a way here to tackle the scenario.

    Hi @Tejaskumar Darji

    Interesting question and a good opportunity for discussion :)

    We have similar problems in our company. Not only with occasional connection losses but also with performance problems like degradation or processing problems.

    The solution for this was creating external alerts to check every 5 minutes the status of the platform. In this way, Nagios was really good, case you can implement alerts and make actions directly in the server depending on the result.

    The more complex task here is to design the alert. We have two types

    - Robot is alive? -> Checking directly the status of the Runtime Resource. If is disconected we wake up the Resources PC again
    - Any process issue? -> For this alert we impliment an external log system. In a database we put the result of the items. If we have high volumen of errors in the last hour, we send an alert to the maintenance team for manual check in.



    Hope this helps you!

    See you in the community, bye :)

    Am facing the similar issue of connection lost frequently and am looking to have some alert mechanism incorporated or having an automation solution for a reboot of the bot runner. 
    Could you please share how did you implement the below : 
    Robot is alive? -> Checking directly the status of the Runtime Resource. If is disconected we wake up the Resources PC again
