Managing background processing resources

Updated on August 25, 2021

Meet highly challenging background processing requirements by creating job scheduler rules to run scheduled tasks and queue processor rules for asynchronous processing.

  • Background processing best practices

    To maintain and manage your work resources and to ensure that resource performance is not compromised if a node becomes unexpectedly unavailable, design your work assignments to be thread-safe and use a multi-threaded environment.

  • Using job schedulers and queue processors instead of agents

    For better scalability, ease of use, and faster background processing, use job scheduler and queue processor rules instead of agents in scenarios that previously required agents, such as service-level agreements, sending daily emails, or queuing items.

  • Managing job schedulers

    Job schedulers are internal background processes on the server that run activities on a periodic basis. Use the Jobs landing page to manage job schedulers in your application.

  • Managing queue processors

    Use the Admin Studio, Queue processor page to review information about queue processors in your system.

  • Managing agents

    Use Admin Studio to manage agents to debug and trace any problems with agent activity. You can also start, stop, restart, or trace agents.

  • Automating the runtime context management of background processes

    You can enable your system to automatically manage the resolution of queue processor and job scheduler rules in an application without any manual configurations. These applications are added to the System Runtime Context.
