entrée V4 SQL: Scheduling Utility


Server requirements:
  • If you have 15 entrée users or higher, it is recommended that the Sybase Advantage Database and the entrée software are installed on their own dedicated server
  • Windows 7, Windows 10, Windows 2008R2 Server / Windows 2012R2 Server (including Standard and Server Essentials)
  • Quad Core processor (less than 15 users) / 8 Core processor (greater than 15 users). Note that the Sybase Advantage Database Server supports multiple processors on Windows. It is multi-threaded and will perform each user request database operation concurrently or in parallel if multiple processors are present.
  • Intel Xeon E-5 24/26 XX v2 series 3.0ghz or greater
  • 16GB for up to 14 users / 32GB for 15 users or more
  • Windows 64-Bit
  • 500GB hard drive, 1TB recommended
  • CD-ROM Drive
  • For optimal speed, NECS recommends an enterprise class SSD (Solid State Drive) rather than a traditional hard drive with moving parts, such as the Samsung EVO series. Always perform regular daily backups and the SSD should be replaced when the manufactuer's warranty expires.
Workstation requirements:
  • Windows 7 / Windows 10
  • Intel i5 or greater
  • 4GB RAM (8GB desirable)
  • 1360 x 768 minimum monitor resolution
  • 200GB hard drive
Notes:
  • The entrée data files should not be installed on the terminal server. Instead they should live on a separate file server.
  • In order for entrée V4 to run at optimal speed, please click here to run our System Optimizer tool. Not having the values specified from this tool will cause your entrée V4 system to run at a much slower than optimal speed.

Save Time and Human Resources by Scheduling Reports

The report scheduling feature provides you with an automated means to generate any entrée report with any existing defined report configuration. This is an important feature because of the savings it provides in both time and human resources. Overall it greatly improves the efficiency with which you can automate repetitive and time consuming activities.



Scheduled Run Times & Destinations

The scheduler allows you to define the server or workstation on the network which will generate the report, including the priority of each server or workstation to generate a report in case that computer is busy processing other jobs or is not available. You can schedule reports to be run on daily, weekly and monthly cycles, including specific run times such as 4:00AM. Reports can be printed to a specific network printer, saved to a specific location on your network, emailed to a predefined list of contacts and generated as a PDF, Excel, RTF or text document.




Job Log History

A complete Job Log History is provided including email notifications for when each job is scheduled, pending and executed. A calendar view allows you to see all your jobs on a daily, weekly or monthly basis by the server or workstation defined to handle report tasks.
