Scheduling an hourly or daily cache refresh means that information is fetched from the enterprise information server (EIS) and populated into the cache on either of these hourly or daily frequencies according to the schedule and range of time you configure.
The Schedule tab in the Cache Property dialog displays options
appropriate for configuring this type of schedule.
- Select either Hourly or Daily as the Schedule Repeat criteria.
- (Optional) If you want to set a range to control which days the
schedule refresh runs, configure a start date and time, an end date and time, or
day of week (if applicable).
- Select Start Date to set a date
for which the first execution of the scheduled refresh is performed. To be
more specific, you can also select Start Time to
specify a start time.
If you do not set a start date and time, then, by
default, the date and time that SAP Mobile Server starts is used.
- Select End Date to set a date
that ends the repeating refresh transactions for a package. To be more
specific, you can also select End Time to specify an
end time. An end date and time are exclusive. This means that a refresh
transaction runs up to, but does not include, the end time.
If you do not set an end date and time, then, by
default, the date and time that SAP Mobile Server stops is used.
- Select Specify Week Days to
select the days of the week that the refresh transaction runs. This means
that for the days you select, the refresh runs every week on the day or days
you specify. A weekday is inclusive. This means that any day you choose is
included in the frequency. All others are excluded.
For example, if a schedule has a start time of 13:00 and an end time of
16:00 and repeats every hour, the refresh task would execute between 13:00 and
16:00 as determined for a custom schedule (based on the interval expiry).
For an hourly or daily schedule, the refresh is triggered in that time range on
an hourly or daily basis.
When the schedule expires, the automatic refresh you
configured terminates, unless the end user initiates a refresh.
- Click OK.
