Lots of info about long-running tasks, my problem is the opposite. By design, my task exits early most of the time (conditions not met, so script terminates via
exit() ). On the command line, this takes maybe one second. After uploading to PA and using the "Save & Run", it takes about 10 seconds, due to a new console being opened and initialized. However when it is run as a scheduled task, the logs say it takes 24-27 seconds.
If I run this once an hour, that's about 1/4th of my total daily console time -- for a process which would take about 1 second each time if run locally. Can I speed up the execution? Any way to have the scheduled task start the console quicker? Can I keep a console alive and re-use it on each run? Thank you.
