Stonebranch Universal Automation Center Stability

Brian
Sr. System Programmer at a retailer with 1,001-5,000 employees
In terms of resiliency, we run the high-availability, so I have two controllers, one in passive and one primary-active. We switch every month for patching, and the passive one takes over without an issue. With our database patching, we can see when that stops and when the controller goes into a pause. But less than 15 seconds later, we're back up and running again. There are no job failures associated. It takes off right away. In the patching world, we've seen a significant improvement.

The Universal Controller is very capable, very stable. We really haven't had any problems, stability-wise, with the Controllers. We've been very happy with the resiliency of this solution. We really don't have problems with Stonebranch. Once we get agents in place and configured, they're stable. Our Stonebranch Universal Controller runs. It is very stable. Occasionally, we have an agent that doesn't come back up after OS patching. That doesn't happen very often. But everything is getting patched on a monthly cycle on the analytics side when the repos come out and get pushed out from satellite. But that issue is so infrequent that we don't make a whole lot of noise about. That's probably the most common issue, though: After patching, every once in a while we have an agent that will hang on the way back up. It's really just a restart of the agent and it comes back up. But that might be one thing that could be improved. View full review »

The stability has been pretty good. It's been the best out of all the solutions that I've had to deal with. View full review »

The stability is very good and solid. I've had no problems with it. The resiliency is good. We have had server outages and can tell whether to restart jobs that were running, pick up jobs that were skipped or just ignore them. It does a real good job of picking up after itself. In addition, if the server that UAC is running on goes down, it will do the same thing. It will try and catch up on the jobs that it needs to be in. It knows which ones to skip. It is a fairly robust solution. View full review »

The solution is very resilient. You have multiple agents and you have High Availability, so we're able to do maintenance to one server without affecting its availability. It's been rock-solid for us. View full review »

The stability of the agents is wonderful; the Controller, again, needs a little beef. View full review »

Stability of UAC is good. When problems do arise, they can be quickly solved most times, so downtime is minimal. We are running a high-availability environment. View full review »

Yes, it happens from time to time that UAC is not available, we work with the Stonebranch support team when it happens, it's not 100% bulletproof. View full review »

The product is very stable. When problems occurred, they were due to the environment and not the product itself. View full review »
