Scheduled jobs

Alfresco runs a number of scheduled jobs that assist in the maintenance of a production environment. These jobs are defined in the <configRoot>/scheduled-jobs-context.xml file.

Scheduled job Description
ftsIndexerTrigger Triggers the full text indexing of uploaded or modified documents.
contentStoreCleanerTrigger Launches the contentStoreCleaner bean, which identifies, and deletes or purges orphaned content from the content store while the system is running. Content is said to be orphaned when all references to a content binary have been removed from the metadata. By default, this job is triggered at 4:00 am each day. In a clustered environment, this job could be enabled on a headless (non-public) node only, which will improve efficiency.
nodeServiceCleanupTrigger Performs cleanup operations on DM node data, including old deleted nodes and old transactions. In a clustered environment, this job could be enabled on a headless (non-public) node only, which will improve efficiency.
openOfficeConnectionTesterTrigger Maintains the connection with OpenOffice.
indexBackupTrigger Creates a safe backup of the Lucene directories.
tempFileCleanerTrigger Cleans up all Alfresco temporary files that are older than the given number of hours. Subdirectories are also emptied and all directories below the primary temporary subdirectory are removed. The job data must include the protectHours property, which is the number of hours to protect a temporary file from deletion since its last modification.
avmOrphanReaperJob Quartz wrapper for OrphanReaper, which is a background thread for reaping nodes that are no longer referenced in the AVM repository. These orphans arise from purge operations.
avmExpiredContentTrigger Searches for expired content in the web project staging area and prompts the last modifier of the content to review it.
ehCacheTracerJob Collects detailed cache usage statistics and outputs them to the console, depending on how logging has been configured for the server. By default, his job is not activated. To activate this job, uncomment the scheduler property.
