    AMPI Error at 7 pm each night

    Hi gang,

    The Editor for this feature film is getting the same AMPI Error at 7 pm every night. It doesn't matter what he does in Avid, it always seems to happen around 6:45-7:15 pm every single night, like clockwork. 

    Does anyone know why this is happening and what this error even means? 

    To add, I also have his same Avid project open on my system, as we work on shared Volumes, however, sometimes I'm not even working in the project, I just have it opened and yet he still gets this error.

     

    If anyone can shed some light that would be greatly appreciated!

    What else is your computer doing around that time? Do you have some software that is performaing a background task?

    Check the Mac Console app to see if you notice anything peculiar.

    Hey Kevin,

    The editor is not doing anything whatsoever in the background. It just seems to happen right around that time, every night. 

    I should add, here are his and my specs:

    10.9.5
    3.5 GHz 6-core
    16GB 1866 MHz DDR3

    Avid 7.0.6.1

    Attached are the screen grabs of the errors, but mostly seeing the AMPIEngineComponent error.

    I should add that during lunch hour I had him restart his system. I was also working within my own Avid project and not his, and by 6:45-7:15, he did not experience any issues. But I will see how today goes, as that might just be a coincidence.
