Viewing the Store and Forward Schedule List
Use the Store and Forward window to see a list of schedules. The schedules include statistics that help you evaluate the status, performance, and progress of your schedules.
You must create a schedule. By default, the first time that you access the Store and Forward window, no schedules are listed.
You can use options on the toolbar and the Display list box to change your view of the schedule list. Change your view of the list to focus on the statistics from various points of view. For example, if you want to view the statistics for a particular Event Collector, you can select Event Collectors from the Display list. The list then groups by the Event Collector column and makes it easier for you to locate the Event Collector that you want to investigate.
By default, the Store and Forward list is configured to display the list that is organized by the schedule (Display >Schedules).
- On the navigation menu (), click Admin to open the admin tab.
- In the System Configuration section, click Store and Forward.
- In the Store and Forward window, view the parameters
for each schedule.
The following table describes some of the parameters for the schedule.
