Running PRO-IV as a UNIX ksh

25 April 2003 - 03:14 AM

Hi all,

We have a customer site that has implemented a UNIX menu script to start their PRO-IV sessions as ksh processes. This method of starting PRO-IV seems to be fine except when the PRO-IV client's disconnects from the server abnormally, ie. due to PC reboot or network disruption. What happens then, is the ksh process starts spinning and starts using up a high amount of CPU resources. The PRO-IV timeout settings we implemented does not kick in here as the process is not idle as such as it is using up CPU.

Basically, the script goes:

echo "   1. Start Application"
read -r Ans
case $Ans in
1)  $DIR/start_proiv_apps_script

The are running on an RS6000/AIX 4.3.

Has anyone had any experience with similar problems running PRO-IV as a ksh? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,
