Subj:   Re: Queue Tables
From:   David Clough

One more question, if I may ...

How do I set up a Procedure to Consume rows from the Queue Table and, more particularly, get it to re-start once it's consumed the TOP 1 ?

Certainly I can set of the Procedure and I would expect it to wait until a row arrives on the Queue Table. It would then Consume it, process it and then, unless I code it to continue forever, essentially stop.

Is the perceived wisdom that I'd make use of Job Scheduler and use this to make the Job (probably a Bteq Script invoking a Stored Procedure) Cyclic ?

I would also imagine - haven't tried it yet, but I will - that the Stored Procedure will just sit there in an Active State, but waiting for a row to turn up. ?So, from the Job Scheduler's perspective, the Stored Procedure could be running for a long, long time (depending upon the frequency of Queue Row activity)

Any other ideas or mechanisms to make this work ?
