KBI 311144 Issue Addressed: All Following Alerts Are Severely Delayed Because Of Sending Batches Of SMS Alerts


Argent Advanced Technology 3.1A-1410-A or earlier


Wednesday, 31 Dec 2014


When Argent Console Engine is sending batches of SMS Alerts, Alerts of newly incoming Events will be significantly delayed

The issue is addressed in Argent AT 3.1A-1501-A

Technical Background

Argent Console Engine put incoming Event requests in a FIFO queue

An Event won’t be handled until the ones before it have been processed

In Argent AT version earlier than and including 3.1A-1410-A, a SMS Alert can take up to 30 seconds to fire

As a result, if an Event causes SMS Alerts, it can take more than half a minute to process

If a batch of Events all contain SMS Alerts, any Event behind the batch can be severely delayed

Argent AT 3.1A-1501-A addresses the issue by not only significantly improved performance of sending SMS Alert

but also handling SMS Alert asynchronously

As a result, Events firing SMS Alerts will not block following Events to be processed


Upgrade to Argent AT 3.1A-1501-A or later
