Recently we've seen with the Sitecore Publishing Service 6.0 a message stating a "system maintenance task is currently running".

Is there a way to configure when this runs? Typically we see it run during normal business hours.

Initially I noticed that a second message, "publishing service is not running", even though the application was up.

enter image description here

After recycling the application pool for SPS that message disappeared.

Endpoints to check:

  • https://[service]/api/publishing/jobs/status
  • https://[service]/api/publishing/maintenance/status
  • https://[service]/api/publishing/maintenance/isrunning

Update

Looks like these scheduled tasks startup every time the application pool recycles (or hosts starts up).

  • This is not an answer (I don't have the "reputation" to make a comment so...) but we have the same problem. Very annoying since nothing comes out until I can restart the app pool. Appeared after the sitecore 10.2 upgrade, a rare problem but still. I've tried disabling the recycling i do of the sps app. pool now, see if that helps. But I'll create a support case as well now.
