Adding a Maintenance Process

Maintenance processes are used to schedule and run maintenance tasks and log clearance tasks. When a maintenance process runs, it executes all maintenance tasks that are assigned to it.

To add a maintenance process

  1. On the Navigation Tree, click Report Warehouse, then click Maintenance and select Maintenance Processes.

  2. Click clip0002 on the Maintenance Processes page. The Maintenance Process page appears.

  3. Name: Enter the name of a new process.

  4. Number of concurrent tasks: Enter the number of concurrent tasks. Enter 1, if you want several tasks to be executed sequentially. Enter the actual number of tasks, if you want them to be executed simultaneously.

  5. Suspended: Select this option to suspend the current process.

  6. Available Tasks: Displays all available tasks, from which you can select tasks to assign to the current process. To do this, drag a task from the left pane to the right pane. The tasks are carried out in the order they appear on the list. You can change the order by dragging items up or down.

  7. Filter by: The filter for the Available Tasks list. Type (part of) a task name, and click Apply to filter the list.

  8. Assigned Tasks: The tasks in this pane will be assigned to the current process. To remove a task from this pane, drag it back to the left pane.

  9. Execution Frequency: These options allow you to set the periodicity of launching the current process. For more information, see Execution Frequency.

  10. To save a new process, click Save.
    The system saves the new process to the database and displays the updated Maintenance Processes page, if the operation is completed successfully.

  11. To allow an administrator to launch the process immediately (subject to internal processing queues) and save the schedule in the database with the Run Once scheduling type and the current date as a date to run, click Run Now.

  12. To clear the recent changes, click Clear.

  13. To cancel the operation and return  to the Maintenance Processes page without saving data, click Cancel. Keep in mind that no changes will be saved.
