If you want to attempt to fix a running job scheduler without restarting the node, you can interrupt the job scheduler on the Requestors landing page. Interrupting a job scheduler is useful when the job scheduler stops working correctly during processing and cannot complete its run.
For example, a job scheduler runs an activity that contains a call to an external service (such as a REST endpoint, database, or email server). If that interaction with the external service stops (due to communication issues or problems with that resource), the job scheduler might not be able to finish, nor can it restart processing the activity again.
In the example above, you interrupt the job scheduler and introduce timeouts to the job scheduler activity logic.
- Identify the job schedulers that are running and determine which job scheduler
you want to interrupt.
For more information, see Determining which job schedulers are running.
- On the rightmost end of the JOBSCHEDULER_THREAD row, select the More icon (⋮), and then select Interrupt.
