Update 2: Next day, all daily jobs ran as scheduled. I didn't change any settings or schedules, just worked the next day.
Update: Just realized another daily job has ran twice. Same deal as below, scheduled daily, been running for 10+ days with no problems, but this morning it ran twice. There's been no modifications to the server/gallery, as I'm the only one that uses it currently. There are only 4 daily jobs scheduled. Two have ran twice and two have run once.
I'm new to server and slowly transitioning jobs over from a desktop+automation environment. I scheduled a job to run daily at 6:30am (The first two days ran at the original 7:00 am, but I realized that wasn't early enough for downstream jobs) which has been working fine for 11 days, but today for whatever reason it ran twice at the exact same time.
The job is populating a data repository and the data did in fact land there twice. The 11 days it ran correctly are not doubled. One thing that is weird, is that the schedule has a "Times Run" of 12 times, but if you count the number of runs there are 13.
Any thoughts about why this might be happening?
The server and the worker are the same machine.
Versions: Client: 2020.1.0
Service Layer Master: 2020.3.4.30228
Not sure what other info would be useful, but let me know!
Unfortunately, I have seen the same behavior, with no identifiable root cause (and on a different version of Alteryx Server). The incidence rate of this particular issue seems extremely low within our environment; however, it should ideally never happen. I've heard others mention the same intermittent issue.
The same is happening on our Server. It's happening really rarely but it causes problems when it happens. We are running the newest Alteryx Server version. Has this been investigated by the developers?
We're on version 2021.3 and we are having that problem pretty frequently even though we have a small number of schedules. Our workflows send an email when it completes. When we receive multiple emails, we quickly learn when a workflow was incorrectly fired off multiple times,
So, I submitted a case and I received two identical emails from Alteryx acknowledging receipt of my case, LOL. They must be using their scheduler,
I was told that this issue has been fixed in 2021.3.5. We'll see....
I've been working on this with various technical professionals within the Alteryx Support model for quite some time. From my experience, it does appear to be resolved in versions 2021.3.5 and later. For specific reference, you'll find the issue details under 'TGAL-6148' in their release notes.
