Chapter 5. Scheduling Events
Table of Contents
After an event is created, Power Manager stores the event in an internal event store. The event store’s contents are visible in the Power Manager application.
Power Manager schedules events. A scheduled event is an event whose triggers are active and enqueued.
Power Manager’s Scheduling Engine coordinates and schedules your events and ensures they are triggered appropriately and performed only if their criteria is met.
Starting and Stopping the Scheduler
You can stop and start Power Manager’s Scheduling Engine at any time. When stopped Power Manager will stop scheduling new events and remove any previously scheduled events. When the Scheduling Engine is stopped no event will be triggered or performed.
