Toad Data Compare Tasks getting hung on Scheduled Runs

I’m running into issues while running the data compare job in the automation task. It runs for hours apparently with no activity. it runs fine some days but not always.

I’m able to run the task manually using the Toad and execute the task and it runs just under 30 minutes.

  • Ran the automation task by setting it in verbose mode.

  • Automation task execute sql statement before running the compare job. It then uses the value from the sql statment and send e-mail.

  • Attached is the log
