Workbook Job randomly hangs RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All

    I have set up an HPC Server 2008 cluster. I am following the step by step Microsoft document: Accelerating Excel 2010 with Windows HPC server 2008 R2: Building VBA Applications and Workbooks for a Windows HPC cluster (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=2939).

    When I attempt to run the example workbooks on the cluster the job randomly hangs taking sometimes over one minute to complete (should take 3-6 secs). There are no error messages in the cluster manager or on the client.

    I am running HPC Windows Server 2008 R2, and HPC Pack sp4.

    I have taken various nodes offline and online to troubleshoot but I can can find no pattern.

    Any help with troubleshooting this would be greatly appreciated.

    Best wishes

  • Hi Jimmy,

    Could you monitor the performance of your CNs while jobs are running? It's very likely that some services/processes are saturating the system resources. Could you try perfmon in Windows?
