Taskengines Issues On 2012Serverr2 Follow

I started developing our new printing system on my nootebook (win8.1) based on the taskmaster example program. Everything went fine.

For testing I moved the app to our new 2012R2 server vm. Because of the one hour limitation of one task engine process I implemented a restart handling. This I also testet well localy with no issues.

But on the server the app hangs up after some hours...

 

I started investigation on this and I found out:

 

Starting 99 TaskEngines on...

...my Win8.1 64bit 12GB ram Laptop --> no problem

...our win7 prof 64bit 2GB ram VM --> no problem

...our 2012ServerR2 8GB ram VM --> not able to start more than 20-30 instances!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Each instance starts with an 1-2 sec intervall and every try to start 99 engines one engine hangs and blockes the rest engines to start and of cause the gui thread!

 

I invested realy a lot time on this and BarTender is full installed with Enterprise Automation version connected to the same SysDB on every machine. (10.1 SR4).

 

 

Any idea what I did wrong?

Starting the TaskManager this way was solving my problem:

 

                    EngineSettings engineSettings = new EngineSettings();
                    engineSettings.DesktopHeapSize = 2048;
                    taskManager.Start(numEngines, engineSettings);

Thanks to the techicial Seagull support!
