The Robot Tester runs 24/7 in order to execute the assigned processes (scenarios/scripts). However, the rTester process restart itself for maintenance purpose at a pre-defined, specific time during the night.
The maintenance schedule can be modified by following the steps below:
1. Log into the machine where rTester is installed and go to "...\Automai\rTester" [rTester installation] folder.
2. Open rTester.ini file and look for the line below:
//By default, the maintenance will happen every day between 4:00 AM and 5:00 AM.
The digits indicates the time interval which is based on the 24-hour clock and the * represents all the days of a week.
Note: If the line doesn't exist, add it to the end of the file.
You can set the maintenance schedule to a specific day and time by updating the hours and replacing the * with the day of the week. For example:
This mean that the Robot Tester will restart every Wednesday between 12:00 AM and 3:00 AM.
This mean that the Robot Tester will restart every Friday between 7:00 PM and 8:00 PM.
Tip: You can set the value to zero, so that the Robot will not perform maintenance restart. maintenance=0
Note: The rTesters will not restart if they are busy with executing tests.
3. Save the file.
