How Many Bartender (32) Should There Be?? Follow

Running BarTender Version 10.1.SR3 on a Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard.  Over the weekend, we noticed that when you open up task manager that there are two BarTender.exe (32 bit) processes consuming 100% of the cpu on the machine.  Our admin rebooted the server and things returned to normal.  

 

Currently bartender service is running and in the task manager shows:

 

2 x BarTender.exe (32 bit) 

1 x BarTender Systems Service 932 bit)

 

We do not use Commander.

 

My question is on a normal system with no commander, how many bartender.exe (32 bit) should there be?  

 

Thanks in advance.

I recommend you update to v10.1 SR4 when you get the chance: http://www.seagullscientific.com/support/service-releases-legacy-versions/v101/

 

Ordinarily there shouldn't be any running unless something like the Commander or System Database services are actively using a BarTender process for producing a print job or related task.

So if they are using ODAC connections for label templates, we could expect to see the bartender.exe processes.  I will work on getting the update to v10.1.SR4 in place.

 

Thanks

Not sure what the use of ODAC has to do with BarTender...  Are you perhaps running a self-developed application using C#/VB.NET that calls BarTender for printing labels?  This of course would also spawn a BarTender process.

Hi,

I am having the same issue with bartend.exe processes building up and using 100% of the cpu on the server in result a long delay for labels to print or else not printing at all. I am using Bartender Version 10.1

 

Thanks
