Filemaker Server 18 Dashboard Continually Refreshing

Recommended Posts

I am using Filemaker Server 18 on Windows Server 2012 R2

Been using it for years with no issues

Currently when I log in to the console it is very sluggish.

When I get to the Dashboard it shows No databases, then it auto refreshes and the database list appears.

Within 15 seconds of scrolling the database list to open files the screen refreshes. This situations is happening over and over in a loop.

Any Thoughts on what is causing this issue?

      have built a banking application essentially containing Accounts with a link to transactions. I like to see the transactions associated to each account in Date order descending, so they show most recent transactions at the top
      I want to see the current balance/running total beside each each transaction for which i use a Summary field,
      In the examples shown in the image - if the transactions are sorted in Date Ascending order then the running totals are correct; but if they are sorted in Descending order (which is what I want), then the running totals are meaning less to me (even if correct to Filemaker) as the Summary total seems to start at the top and work down

      I'm using text in my delivery slip layout through a lookup field and want to remove text if "RO#" text is in the field
      example: VS-321 The Severed Arm: Blu-Ray RO# 52975
      i want to remove everything starting with "RO#" if the field contains it,
      I know this can be done using LeftWords or RightWords but I can't get it done,
      if anyone can help it would be much appreciated.

      It's been a while since I developed a performance/singer set list application in FM18 and am revisiting it. I don't work in FM enough make my desired changes on my own, so asking for some help or directions.
      Essentially I have several related tables that grab info into a join (Gigs~Songs_Join) table. Tables include:
      Gigs: Date/time, venue, producer, etc. I
      Songbook: song title, duration, keys, genre, lyrics, etc.
      Musicians: used in Songbook to include original artist, lyricist, composer, etc.
      Venues: address, contact for venue, etc., used in Gigs above
      The attached snapshot is of the existing layout. 
      When this was originally created, there were just two of us performing, so I had a Singer value list created which included Clayton, Vicky and duet (both of us). The "Set List Summary & Counts" section of the layout (circled) is done with summary counts and the headings (Set, Songs, Duration, Clayton, Vicky, Duet) are just text on the layout. Each row in the section is a portal to the same layout (Gigs~Songs_Join) filtered for the Set number at the bottom. The assumption is that a max of 4 sets would be performed, thus four rows. The bottom row in the section shows how many sets, songs, duration, and counts of songs by singer.
      We now have additional singers, so I'd like the section to be more dynamic to account for multiple people. Recognizing a practical limit of how big this section can be, and assuming there never to be more than four singers, I'd like to heading in the section to be dynamically created and provide the same info as currently displayed. I edited the Singer value list to include various combinations of people and realized that's not going to work for my goal.
      I think what I want is some kind of dynamic field(s) to populate the header row. In the case of duets (i.e., Clayton & Vicky), rather than show that as a duet for the purpose of the summary section, I'd like to increment Clayton and Vicky's counts. So if Clayton sings 3 songs, Vicky sings 4 songs, and they sing 3 duets together, Clayton's count would be 6 and Vicky's count would be 7. The Duet column would go away. Also, if Lanny and Ella perform in a gig, they would (dynamically) appear in the section, with solo and duet counts handled the same way.
      I hope this is clear enough to provide some background, and appreciate any help given!

      We run several FMS18 instances on Mac OSX machines. 
      Randomly, more often on Fri / Sat / Sun, Filemaker server will shut down and disconnect all clients - curiously always at the same time, around 11:55 PM - , and I am unable to restart it from the command line and the web admin drops offline. The only way to bring it back to life is to reboot the entire machine. 
      Is there any scheduled update job at 11:55 PM that I should be aware of that would cause this behavior?
