  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • WSGrid process stops receiving status updates (include final
    status like whether the job finishes in 'ended' or
    'restartable' states) and/or job log output updates as well.
    This happens due to invalid object references.  This only
    happens when using SIBus, but not MQ.
    scheduler joblog shows this error:

Local fix

  • recycle the scheduler server to clear up the invalid object
    references.
