[SOLVED] ReportCaster Runs - Data Service Used.

When I see our ReportCaster procedures running on the Report Console Workspace, I see them running under the 'DEFAULT' Data Service.

Shouldn't they be running under the 'SCHED_DEFAULT' Data Service?

We are not having any issues, but as we plan to increase the number of Report Caster jobs we run, I was thinking it would be better if they didn't run in the 'DEFAULT' Data Service.

I didn't see this topic address in neither the 'Server Administration' manual, nor the 'ReportCaster' manual.

I believe SCHED_DEFAULT is a service intended for a DataMigrator Server implementation. If you want to segregate the processing you could create a new service dedicated to scheduler by adding a new node block.

To take this a step further once you establish the new data service you need to use the ReportCaster console and under Configuration / Data Servers set it to be the default server. You will probably have to re-cycle the ReportCaster service for it to see the new data server.


Thank you for using Focal Point!

We run thousands of Report Caster jobs every month and they all run under the 'default' data service. The data service used depends on the procedure executed by the report caster job.

Thank you all, for your thoughts and clarifications.

OK, I get now that it is normal that the ReportCaster runs are running in the DEFAULT Data Service.

In the Web Console I see where I can create a new Data Service.

Let's say I do create a new Data Service with the intention that my Report Caster jobs run there. For sake of example I'll call the new Service - RC_Service.

How do I get my ReportCaster runs to use the new service - RC_Service?

[As far as I can tell the 'Data Servers' node, on the 'Configuration' tree, of the ReportCaster Console is for changing/adding a SERVER (EDASERVE), which is not what I want to do.]

Is Data Service to be used, controlled at the procedure level?

Hi David

No in the RC Configuration console you can set the default data service RC will use.

Under Data Servers folder you should see a list of all the data services. If the RC_Service doesn't show up then you will need to restart the RC Service. Once you see the RC_Service click on it and then check the Default check box, save and restart.
