29.2. Metadata Sync Task

The process which does Metadata Synchronization is referred as Metadata Sync Task. This task performs a series of steps before syncing of metadata

Once this task is run at the scheduled time, this task has the ability to retry (if any of the steps fail) based on the configuration of below parameters as defined in dhis.conf file.

ex:

metadata.sync.retry = 5

metadata.sync.retry.time.frequency.millisec = 10000

If no values are specified then the default values are

metadata.sync.retry = 3

metadata.sync.retry.time.frequency.millisec = 30000

Each retry will be made after the time (in millisecond) as specified. If the steps still fail even after all the retries, then the scheduler stops its execution and then a mail will be sent to the configured user (see Section 29.5, “Configure Local Instance”)
