Using the MULTECM Utility
For larger operations managing hundreds of ECM stations across a number of different subsidiaries, setting up batch jobs to run simultaneously can get a bit cumbersome.� This is where the ?MULTECM.exe? utility comes in handy.� This tool allows you to continuously run a user-specified number of ECM tasks at the same time.�� As one task is completed, another task automatically takes its place. �
For example, let?s say the server needs to process in data for 100 ECM stations (representing 100 store locations).
- Start by using a text file to store the command line parameters necessary to process in each of the 100 ECM stations.�� This is basically a master task list.�
- Then, using a batch file, configure and run the ?MULTECM.exe? utility.
- The tool will launch the appropriate ECM program and run the specified number of tasks from the master task list.� As tasks are completed, the tool will automatically load more tasks to take their place.� This process continues until all tasks in the master task list are completed.
