    New Task Wizard

    The New Task Wizard is used for adding a new scheduled task to the Task Manager, and is accessed by clicking the New Task button at the bottom of the Task Manager window.

    The first step of the wizard is to select which type of task to add. There are many types of tasks available, as shown in the figure below. Clicking on a task type icon will display a description of the task type in the text area below the icon panel. The following sections describe how to configure each type of task.

    New Task Wizard: Selecting the Type of Task

    Select the task type and, if desired, give it a Task Name and a Comment, both of which are optional. After the initial step of selecting the type of task to create, two more steps are involved in creating the task:

    • Task Parameters: This step allows the user to select the routers and specific network data to be collected from the network.
    • Scheduling Parameters: This step allows the user to specify the start, stop times, and the frequency of collection.

    The following sections describe the Task Parameters step for each type of task, as these options vary depending on the task type. The Scheduling Parameters step, however, is uniform for all tasks, and will be described after all Task Parameter options have been covered. Below is a table of the different types of tasks available.
