Validate your runbook design – part V

Posted: 25th September 2011 by Anders Bengtsson in Orchestrator

I have updated the Orchestrator Community Runbook Check again. The last version was unbelievable slow. It seems like every time the runbook invoke another runbook it took at least five seconds, operations that took one second if I keept it in the same runbook. For that reason I have added activities to a number of runbooks, instead of using library runbooks. I have also re-written a couple SQL queries to make things a bit faster, and added 0 rows result. It now takes around 15 minutes in my sandbox, instead of two hours.

I have also added one check to see if there is any delays configured on links and another check to list runbooks that are checked out during the check.

You can download the new version of the runbook, Orchestrator_Check_wolf_20110925. If you have any ideas what I should add, please post them as comment to this post or send me an e-mail.
