Period: How often the system should send backups to an external server
Hour: During which hour the database backups should be scheduled. The time is taken from the currentl servers time.
Device history database cleanup
The following options allow you to control how often the database should be cleaned. This is used to avoid overflooding the database, which will cause issues to the softwares availability.
The system allows 2 methods of cleanup:
Server time - this option cleans up the database every 30 days for every device since the first start of the software.
Last connection - this option cleans up the database every 30 days since the devices first connection.
Current database size - how much the database is taking up hard drive space.
From this tab you can enable certain tools and features which are not enabled by default.
