Default Schedule for composing on target

What is the interval that the composer runs on the target machine? I have FPDirect 7.1 installed on W2k8 R2 as scheduler and target, when I submit a job I am waiting sometimes > 10 minutes for the monitor to show that the job has started.

Additionally, FPDirect clean out its working directory periodically or is up to an operator to manually do this? Thanks

Jobs should start right away, unless other jobs are running and have taken up all the spots in the queue. Please contact Support if you're having issues with your setup.

It needs to be done manually. FP Direct has no way of knowing when you might be "done" with a job. You can delete jobs with the FP Direct Monitor utility, or by deleting the folders via Windows Explorer.

I am a not a Support engineer, and this forum is not a substitute for Support. My participation on this forum is primarily as a fellow user (and a forum moderator). I am happy to provide help and answers to questions when I can; however, there is no guarantee that I, or anyone else on this forum, will be able to answer all questions or fix any problems. If I ask for files to clarify an issue, I might not be able to look at them personally.

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});

Dan,

Thanks for the response. When I moved the working directory to a local folder, composition started almost immediately. I believe the lag I was experiencing may be due to virus protection running on the scheduler, file server or both.

Also deleting working folders via monitor seems to be a good option.
