Azure Scheduled Jobs Skipping Minutes RRS feed

  • Question

  • From @kozaryna via Twitter:

    "Scheduled job set up in Azure for every minute. I noticed over the past week it started skipping minutes? The service is making an HTTP request to my web site which in turn might run a process."

    Thanks,

  • It is possible to see a skipped minute in a 1-minute job.  In this case, Scheduler job will run every 60 seconds +/- small delta (e.g. 1 second or 2).  For example, your previous job execution time and current job execution time could be 1:09:59 PM and 1:11:00 PM.  Though you might think Scheduler skipped the 10th minutes, the interval between those two execution is actual 61 seconds apart.  Adding a job start time should help to remove the drift.
