PBXScript.Sleep

Recommended Posts

This function stops the execution of the current script for the given number of milliseconds.

 

PBXScript.Sleep 1000

 

This function returns an integer value of  PBXSuccess (0) on success. See list of defined return values.

 

The numeric parameter gives the number of milliseconds to "sleep".

 

This function is used to wait a certain amount of time without consuming CPU load. A common usage is e.g. in a call queue to check every second for the availability of a free agent. While "sleeping" one second no cpu load is used.

 

When ever you need to loop within your script make sure to use this function to slow the execution of the loop down and save cpu load.

 

An endless loop, like

 

While True
  i = i + 1
Wend

 

will drive the CPU load of the server machine to 100% and definitely interfere negatively with the all calls on and other activities of the SwyxServer.
