HangFire stops for some reason

I have a ASP.NET Core project that uses HangFire to run recurring jobs. For some reason HangFire stops after some time and logs as follows:

2022-08-11 10:42 Debug Hangfire Server is stopping...
2022-08-11 10:42 Information Server sdu-ituadev0a:8060:badc3a3e caught stopping signal...

2022-08-11 10:42 Debug Execution loop DelayedJobScheduler:534fec47 stopped in 11,6591 ms

It shuts down and then no jobs are executed and no heartbeats are sent.

I want it to run forever. What am I missing?

The application sets:

  • Preload enabled to true
  • Startmode to Always running
  • Idle timeout to 0
  • doAppInitAfterRestart to true

I currently do not set hostName and initializationPage but I invoke /hangfire after deployment.

It runs under IIS 10

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards

Unfortunately that’s just how IIS works - the site will get spun down at some point when there’s no activity, even with AlwaysRunning enabled.

You might have better results running the site under Kestrel, but I’ve not tried that yet, so I can’t offer any advice, there.

Your best bet is to set up some sort of pinging service and add an anonymous endpoint that it can hit periodically, or move the Hangfire Server to a background service - the dashboard can still be hosted in your site.

Thanks, I will try that.

Esta utilizando a extensao UseConsole do hangfire? Para mim foi oque funcionou…

No I use IIS and my own Web-based tail. I would not know where to make UseConsole fit in. But thanks for the input. I am about to relase a heartbeat endpoint that will be invoked by a monitoring tool. Hopefully that fixes the problem.

I have now used a monitoring tool (OP5) to call a web page in the solution for some weeks and it works perfectly.
