Syntax Elements

MODE ({1|2})

1 = "buffered" or "availability mgr" mode. This mode will collect data 24x7 at the interval set in the INTERVAL parameter.
2 = "batch" or "collection window" mode. This mode will collect data during the period set by the STARTIME and STOPTIME parameters.

The default is mode 2.

With a large number of files to scan this process can become resource intensive, therefore mode 2 may be the more desirable option by allowing file scanning to be restricted to off-peak times. Alternatively, if STARTIME and STOPTIME are set whilst using mode 1, the program will run in Normal mode during the specified period and at Low priority outside of these times.

INTERVAL (<n>)

Insert the number of minutes between consecutive collections in the buffered mode (i.e. mode 1). This setting is ignored in mode 2. The default is 60.

DIRIGNOR (<Directory-path-name>, <Directory-path-name>)

This parameter is used to specify directories that are to be ignored during scanning. Insert a directory path and name. The specified directories and all their descendants will be ignored during recursive disk scanning. A comma (,) is the separator if there is more than one directory to ignore. The default is to scan all available directories.

DIRSCAN (<Directory-path-name>, <Directory-path-name>)

This parameter is used to specify the directories that are to be scanned. Insert a directory path and name. The collector will scan these directories and all their descendants only. DIRIGNOR can be used to ignore specific subdirectories. ADDFILE and ADD DIR can be used to add specific files and directories that are not included in the nominated directories. A comma ',' is the separator if there is more than one directory to scan. The default is to scan all available directories.

DISKSCAN (<Disk-drive>)

This parameter is used to specify disk drives to be scanned. A comma ',' is the separator if there is more than one disk drive to scan. The default is to scan all available disk drives.

STARTIME (<n>)

Start time for the disk scanning in hours of the day, eg. enter 18 for 1800 being 6pm. The default is 0.

STOPTIME (<n>)

Stop time for doing the disk scanning collection in hours of the day, e.g. enter 18 for 1800 being 6pm. The default is 6.

If scanning is still running when the STOPTIME is reached, scanning will cease and a message will be logged to the WVLOG file to indicate that the scan interval is not sufficient to complete scanning. In addition, the File Collector will remember that the last scan was not completed and will send an unsolicited message to any online Displays indicating that the sample data may be inaccurate.

If you have set a STARTIME and STOPTIME and selected to use the 'Buffered' mode (i.e. Mode 1), the program priority will be NORMAL during these times. Outside the time span the program priority will be LOW.

DAYDEL (<n>)

The number of days to keep a deleted file in the record. Default is 7.

MAXREC (<n>)

Max. number of record to be shown on the Windows Client. Default is 2000.

SCAN-CHK (<n>)

During disk file scanning, this is the number of files before doing a sleep (ChokingPauseInMiliSecs) to reduce the program CPU usage percentage. Default is 18.

SCANPAUS (<n>)

The duration in milliseconds for doing a sleep() for the noOfFilesPerChoke parameter above.
Default is 150.

RECSEND (<n>)

Number of records to be send to Windows Client before doing a sleep() during a start collection of records. Default is 25.

BUILDLST (<n>)

Number of directories to scan before building a temporary list of records to send to the Windows Client, according to the where clause set.
Default is 50.

This only happens when the program is doing a records collection and disk files scanning simultaneously.

REC-RATE (<n>)

The maximum rate of records to send per second to the Windows Client. By default, this is 50 records per second. This setting is to prevent sending too many records within a short period of time, as this will slow down the Windows Client.

DOFRAGMT ({0|1})

To scan the disk with file fragmentation flag. 0 value here means no fragmentation done during file scanning (this is the default value). Default is 0.

SCANNOW ({0|1})

To scan the disk immediately after installation flag. 0 value means no file scanning until the next due time (usually midnight) after installation (this is the default value).

This only happens when the program is doing a records collection and disk file scanning simultaneously.

RECBUILD (<n>)

Number of records to scan when building a temporary list of records to send to the Windows Client, according to the where clause set. The larger this number is, the faster the records are displayed, but the higher the CPU usage. Default is 100.

BUILDBRK (<n>)

Break time in milliseconds when building a temporary list of records to send to the Windows Client according to the where clause set. The larger this number is, the slower the records are displayed, but the lower the CPU usage. Default is 100.

This only happens when the program is doing a records collection and disk files scanning simultaneously.
