VX Search Server Periodic Jobs

VX Search Server allows one to setup a number of periodic jobs with each one configured to perform one or more file search commands at specific time intervals. This feature is especially useful in conjunction with automatic file search actions allowing one to save reports and/or send E-Mail notifications when a file search operation finds a user-specified number of search results. In order to add a periodic file search job, press the 'Periodic Jobs' button located on the VX Search Server home page and press the 'Add' button.

On the periodic job page, enter a unique periodic job name, specify the time interval and select one or more file search commands to execute. In order to reduce the CPU load and memory usage on the host, VX Server performs selected file search operations sequentially, one after one while saving reports and executing automatic file search actions if required.

In addition, the user is provided with the ability to intentionally slow down file search operations, in order to completely eliminate performance impact on production servers. In order to slow down a file search command, open the command page, press the 'Options' button, select the 'Low Speed' performance mode and press the 'Save' button.
