Automatically start/stop Batch Processor

Postby amisle » Wed Oct 19, 2011 5:47 pm

Is there any way (with a cron job, for instance) to automatically start and stop a Headless Client (batch processor)? My batch processor does nightly maintenance using a scheduled task, but then it sits idle during the day. I see no need for it to take one of my available client licenses during the day, but then I want the scheduled task to fire again the following night. Has anyone found a way around this, or is there a supported method to stop the headless client and start it again on a schedule? Thanks in advance :)

No, there is no supported way to do this now. I agree that it would be nice if there was the option to add a cron expression to a batch processor.
Please create a feature request for this in our suport system:
