Workflow engine and report engine on application server


We're having odd issues with reports being schedule for one time and not running until the database/application server are re-booted.

I noticed that in the KNTA_REPORT_SUBMISSIONS table that there is RELEASE_DATE column. The description in the Data Model Guide (for PPM 8.0) is "Date when report is release to run; required by workflow engine'.

This column is getting updated with the date/time of the database/server bounce which is between 2:00am and 4:30am. The SCHEUDLED_TIME column is populated with the Date/time when the report should run which is much earlier in the day.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knew where on the application server, the 'workflow engine' and, maybe, the 'report engine' are located? I'm just wondering if the that process is getting hung somehow which is preventing some reports from processing. I can't find any specific info on the HP site or documentation about them.

Thanks for any help!
