Anyone have issues with a scheduled task just deciding to stop for seemingly no reason? Scheduled task is configured as follows:
<task log="true" alias="feedcache" interval="60"
Runs fine for days or minutes at a time, but then for
whatever reason it stops and doesn't run again without manually
intervening (verified in this case via log entries in umbracoLog table
and the fact that generated files from the FergusonMoriyama FeedCache
plugin aren't updated). Moreover, the manual intervention usually means
needing to rename the scheduled task as often even touching the
Web.config or restarting the application pool does not successfully
kick start it again.
I would like to provide more information for
what other events occur around it, but there doesn't seem to be any
rhyme or reason, apart from possibly it occurs after publishing any
document in the site (no non-default events/actions hooked up with
this). But even this is not reproducible.

Optimally I'd like to have it run less frequently, but 60 seconds is helpful for possibly debugging the issue.
The problem with the scheduler is that the site needs to be visisted once in a while. My experience is that it dies after aprox 24 hours and when that happens your scheduled task dies also. So try a ping service to ping your site once in a while or generate more visitors.
I would advice an online free scheduler service www.weetasks.com to schedule some urls, or to ping the site in some period.
Thanks for the responses. Unfortunately, we already have the site being pinged regularly so that's likely not it. If I can't figure it out though, I'll have to resort to pinging the feedcache page remotely as that will definitelly work.
This is the first time I've had to rely on the Umbraco scheduler and was hoping that it was implemented reliably (having had to create various schedulers in the past).
which version are you using? I fixed this problem with this solution: http://our.umbraco.org/forum/developers/extending-umbraco/20861-scheduled-tasks-stops
