RE: Maxtries > 12, MaxDials > 12
Thank you David for your comments.
All my client really wants is for the jobs to not fail so quickly so they
have a chance to give the client a ring and tell them their machine is out
of paper or whatever. They want the jobs to be alive for 2 days. I am now
trying to have MaxDials = 12, MaxTries = 12, and JobReq* = 14400 (4 hours).
I am not convinced that all these parameters work as advertised. There seem
to be plenty of rescheduled jobs that do not obey the 4 hour request. I am
still collecting data so I can't say much conclusively yet.
If anyone has some alternative suggestions, I am all ears.
