Detecting stalled actions

(imported topic written by mattp23)

Hi,

On occasion we get actions which get ‘stuck’ in the running state, often due to the code within the application setup routine. Whats the best way to report on machines where an action has been ‘running’ for more than a specified time?

Thanks!

Hey Mattp,

You can create a custom report for these… Here is a very simple custom report that will list you computers with running actions (action must be open):

<?Relevance unordered lists of (links of bes computers whose (exists action result whose (status of it = bes action status running AND state of action of it = "Open")of it))?>

This report can be enhanced in many ways if you want…
