Re: [hylafax-users] batching almost there
The other question is about redials, if we submit 4 faxes to the
same destination & the same TTS , and if the first one hits a busy
signal, do the other 3 also try to call the busy number , or is the
software smarter than that, and puts them all for a re-try?
It is smarter than that, yes. It will reschedule them all for a later
attempt. However, the rescheduled time will not likely be the same for
each, so (as the code now stands) they will not likely all be batched on
the next attempt.
If you wanted them all batched again then you could 'faxalter -a time'
them all from an admin account to make sure they all try to go together
lee, I'm not looking for something that is 100%, just budget
reduction, and I'm not happy with what happened at the start of this
Well, it would seem, that I had misunderstood your batching needs
previously, and yes, batching seems to be designed exactly for your
purpose: to try to reduce the number of calls to the same destination
Before I made the fix for the race condition I had sincerely believed
that jobs scheduled for the same time-to-send would get batched.
Apparently I had never tested it, though, and when I did test it after
the discussion with "Steve" began, I relized that indeed there was
something silly going on. I'm glad that it's working at least tolerably
well for you now. It's nice to know that at least some people are
making good use of this feature.
and just for the record, I am down 1 staff member as of last monday.
