FMS13 Scheduled Scripts not Terminating when Finsihed


FileMaker Server



Operating system version

Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard 64bit

Description of the issue

Server side scripts that used to run fine on FMS11 (we skipped 12) are now occasionally failing to properly terminate on server.  The script itself is done, I check the records and they have all been properly updated as required, but the script client stays running at 100% CPU on server which eventually fires off a warning.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Run a server-side script on machine with specs mentioned.  Randomly sometimes it works sometimes it fails to terminate (it fails to terminate more often than it works).

Expected result

Same as 11/12,  the script just ends when it is finished, it doesn't leave server client connected and cpu at 100% as a result.

Actual result

Server script remains connected as a client,  its stats are around 0 so its not doing anything, BUT when it is in this state the CPU goes to 100%.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

There are no errors

Configuration information

Virtualised environment
4gb Ram
FMS 13.0v2

Only solution is to put a terminate time-out on the script, this is far from ideal.
