When does the following code line end?
I'm getting unexpected API Automation Script Timeouts and I suspect them due to running SubScript at the end.
Could it be that this line of code is blocked until the execution of the c# logic is started?
There are cases where this can take some time. e.g. tons of scripts are already running and are queuing up in the automation queue.
I'm running the subscript with the following attributes and I would expect it will not block on the method as soon as the script is added the automation queue.
- Synchronous = false;
- PerformChecks = false;
The comment in the timeout error in information event, indicates that it timed out when running the StartScript() hence my suspicion that this is blocked (and delayed) due to tons of other scripts that first need to be executed.
(Code: 0x80131500) Skyline.DataMiner.Automation.ScriptTimeoutException: Script has been running for too long, and is being aborted.
at Skyline.DataMiner.Automation.ThreadWatcher.CheckIfAborted(Thread thread)
at Skyline.DataMiner.Automation.Engine.InternalLaunchSubScript(String scriptName, List`1 finalOptions, Int32 inheritSubScript, Int32 extendedErrorInfo, Dictionary`2& subScriptOutput, List`1& errorMessages)
at xxxxx.TriggerAsyncScriptExecution(String logContent)
at xxxxx_1.Script.OnApiTrigger(IEngine engine, ApiTriggerInput requestData)
This method will not wait until the script starts if called with the 'Synchronous' option set to false. The execution will be added to the queue and will return. If a point is reached where the max. amount of parallel scripts is reached, this should still not prevent the method from returning.
However, before the execution can be queued, it does need to acquire a lock that protects the protocol and element caches in SLAutomation. If a lot of things are going on, it could happen that these locks are momentarily not available and that the main script will need to wait until they are available. I would not expect this to take minutes, but more like seconds at most.
When I look at the stack trace, it seems that the main script is getting aborted when the 'CheckIfAborted' method is called, which checks if the main script has reached the timeout. This method is called before the execution of the subscript is requested, which means that the main script has reached the timeout due to actions before calling this subscript. Can you check if there is anything before that line that may be stuck for some time?
