Scheduled Reports via Report Distributor are not running.

Reproducing the Issue

This issue is reproducible when you schedule a  report to run via Report Distributor.


Engineering are currently working on a resolution.


  • The Workaround is to run the report distributor manually.
  • Operations have informed us that the issue is resolved
  • The reason why this occurred was the initiating of scheduled jobs had stopped. While manual jobs still were processed.
  • When Ops re-enabled the scheduler, after fixing the issue, there was a large backlog of scheduled jobs.
  • All of these jobs would enter the queue together.
  • Due to the finite resources available not all can be immediately processed simultaneously.
  • The job server system automatically allocates jobs to servers according to their availability and avoid overloading servers. Overloading servers is counter productive.
  • Servers achieve less overall throughput when overloaded. Hence the system aims to maintain an ideal level of resource usage to maximize job throughput.
  • This is why the issue occurred.
