Problem Description:

My testing server is a HP Proliant ML 150 G3,  running Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard.
I set up some tasks in CF 9, and 9.01 Developer edition - Admin - Scheduled tasks page.

The tasks run just fine for days, and suddenly one by one they ...disappear.
I mean they don't exist at all, they don't run., they are not in the task list of Admin scheduled task page, AND they also don't exist in the neo-cron.xml file !!! 

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Result:

Expected Result:

Any Workarounds:

I was "solving" the problem by keeping a copy of neo-cron.xml when I was setting up my tasks, and copying it over the corrupted neo-cron.xml when the tasks were dissapeared.

Please send us your neo-cron.xml for us to investigate.

I have not the neo-cron.xml because after these problems (tasks disappearing) I uninstalled CF 9 and installed CF 10 beta, BUT the neo-cron.xml of CF 9 is almost the same with one I have now in CF 10 beta. I have uploaded this neo-cron.xml of CF 10 beta here in the bugbase because of a bug of CF 10 beta. You can download the neo-cron.xml from the page of the bug CF-3137239. The only difference this neo-cron (CF 10) has from the one of CF 9 is that in CF 9 all (10) tasks were running every 1 minute + 1 second (it is the minimum period for a task to re-run in CF 9) , and the tasks of CF 10 run every 1 minute. I think it's a very small difference. Please don't hesitate to contact me in case you need something more. AXCrystallis

Suchika, I have suspended this project for the moment. Whenever I started up again and face the same problem I' ll let you know. Please note that whatever I have reported above is accurate and true. I have used scheduled tasks of various types for many years. The only "unusual" characteristic of this disappearing of the tasks is that at least one of my tasks was running for many weeks.... in a period of about once per minute and it was a heavy code... It was using a lot of the server resources. Have a nice day
