DupScout Server Periodic Jobs

DupScout Server and DupScout Enterprise allow one to setup a number of periodic jobs with each one configured to perform one or more duplicate files search commands at specific time intervals. In order to add a periodic duplicate files search job, press the 'Jobs' button located on the main toolbar and press the 'Add' button.

On the periodic job dialog, specify the time interval and add one or more duplicate files search commands to execute. By default, in order to reduce the CPU usage and the memory usage on the server, DupScout Server performs selected duplicate files search operations sequentially, one after one while saving reports and executing automatic duplicate files removal actions. But, if required, the periodic duplicate files search job may be configured to execute all duplicate files search operations in parallel, which is especially useful when searching duplicate files in a number of servers and/or NAS storage devices via the network.

In addition, the user is provided with the ability to intentionally slow down duplicate files search operations, in order to completely eliminate performance impact on production servers. In order to slow down a duplicate files search command, open the duplicate files search command dialog, press the 'Options' button, select the 'Advanced' tab, select the 'Low Speed' performance mode and press the 'Save' button.
