Async CPM jobs are processed by Oracle's SPM queue, but the actual PHP code runs on any number of utility servers (likely based on some load-balancing logic for the pod). The custom CPM code itself runs in a looping PHP process that executes jobs from the queue, which means that the code stays in memory for a period of time. (To my knowledge, Oracle hasn't published any information as to exactly how long these processes run, however.) This causes two important results:

The toolbox has been doing really well and I want to thank everyone for their support by releasing a new tool for free. In the last month alone we gained 81 new users and have users from 22 different countries and 19 states in the US.

And most exciting (for me): we’ve got 70% of users on the new 2.0 toolbox. I’ve attached our analytics report to this post if anyone is interested in concrete numbers.

When building add-ins it's helpful to copy the compiled DLLs to the RightNow dev mode folder so that they're ready for development testing. If you then automatically create ZIPs of the output then you're ready for production deployment without any additional effort. (This is assuming you publish your add-ins as ZIPs and not DLLs.)
