InetSoft Reporting Software - Report Scheduler Properties

The report scheduler properties in InetSoft's reporting software are simple to use and require little to no training for even novice users. View the information below to learn more about the Style Intelligence solution.

Notes on Scheduler Properties

  • Use the 'Restart' and 'Stop' to restart and stop the Scheduler. The RMI Registry will be started automatically.
  • If you must specify additional parameters to the Java executable, add a line to your file.
  • Since the Scheduler runs in its own Java Runtime Environment, you must specify the product's jar files in the 'Scheduler Classpath'.
  • For WebSphere 3.5, add the etools.jar and product jar files (sree_pro.jar, visual_pro.jar, or bisuite_pro.jar) to the property in the WS_HOME/appserver/bin/admin.config file.

The table below lists the Scheduler properties.

Concurrent Threads

Set the maximum number of threads that can be executed concurrently.

Schedule Task File

The task file (schedule.xml) is stored in the sree.home directory. This file contains the definition information for tasks, and their conditions and actions.

Schedule Activity File

The activity file (schedule-activity.xml) is generated dynamically when tasks are created. It is stored in the sree.home directory. The activity file is used to maintain the status of tasks and actions, and is used to implement rollback/recovery if the Scheduler should fail.

Scheduler Log File

Contains log messages generated by the Scheduler

RMI port

The Scheduler server is an RMI application. By default RMI uses port 1099. If the default RMI port is not used, it can be changed here.

Scheduler Classpath

The classpath that will be prepended to the system classpath when the Scheduler process is started. The scheduler is a separate process with a separate JVM.


Shows whether Scheduler is Running or Stopped

Auto Start

Allows the scheduler to be started automatically on initialization of repository servlet. This option does not apply for the cluster environment.

Auto Stop

Allows the scheduler to be stopped automatically when the repository servlet terminates. This option does not apply for the cluster environment.

Scheduler Options

Select options available to a user when they schedule tasks, such as Notification Email, Save In Archive, etc.

Memory Usage

Sets the minimum and maximum memory usage for the Scheduler.

Notification When Scheduler is Down

Enter the email address to which a one-time message should be sent if the Scheduler stops abnormally. The 'Mail Host' and 'From Email Address' must be specified on the 'Mail Configuration' page.

Customer Quote

"The business case for this kind of self-service reporting software was clear given the bottleneck we had in our data access processes. We needed to reduce our reliance on IT for basic access to information that our staff depends on to serve our members. We evaluated several options including developing a solution internally, but given the reasonable initial investment, broad functionality, and ease of use of the software, we chose InetSoft. We were particularly interested in the data grid caching technology built into the application, and we are excited to see the system in action." - Kevin Watkins, Vice President of Engineering at PNGC Power.
