HTTP Server is waiting for threads to finish: the wait is over

How many times have you tried to stop the http task on a Domino server and got this back on the console

HTTP Server: Waiting for session to finish: Session State [Processing Request]

And there you are waiting and waiting for the http to restart och shut down

The solution is not to use tell http quit or tell http restart if you want to shut down http

Use restart task http instead if you want to restart http or restart task http and when the task is restarted use tell http quit.

This will force the http to restart and will not stall the restart because there are some long running requests or view updates that is blocking the restart.

Update: if your using XPages see the Wait is over part 2

>are your code affected by the 8.5.2 computewithform bug and how to fix it

>There is a bug in Domino 8.5.2 that affects the use of Computewithform. If you are using computewithform in your code you should read this. There is no alarm because there is a easy fix to the problem and I don’t think that many will be affected. IBM is working on a HotFix for this but it’s easy to fix so that many will not need it.

If you use computewithform directly after you have fetched a document object then you are affected but If you do something with the backend document before you do the computewithform.
there is no problem.
So check if you application is affected search the code for computewithform( and check if you do a replaceitemvalue, getitemvalue or other manipulation with the document.
But if your code look like this
set doc=db.getdocumentbyunid(UNID)
Call doc.computewithform(false,false)
Then just change the code to
set doc=db.getdocumentbyunid(UNID)
Call doc.replaceitemvalue(“Form”,doc.getitemvalue(“Form”))
Call doc.computewithform(false,false)
And you have fixed the bug so simple.

>Agent alias revisited in 8.5.2 Gold

>As I wrote before about having aliases on agents that doesn’t have brackets around them.

Although the agent itself is only shown in the agent list, in 8.5.1 this did break the agent name.
And in earlier code drops of 8.5.2 this was an problem too. But as I wrote in my Earlier post I was confident that this would be solved until we reach GOLD of 8.5.2 and it did so if you have used agents that has a name like this “(my agent)” and an alias like this “my agent” this works really well now in 8.5.2.
