Scheduled processes

You can start RAD applications, known as scheduled processes, as unattended background processes. Scheduled processes are also known as background agents, schedulers, processors, and background tasks. Scheduled processes run at set intervals and check for specific conditions before executing a RAD application. Each scheduled process has one or more schedule records that determine the conditions that must be met for the RAD application to run. You can start scheduled processes from the Scheduler form.

Note: There can be only one kmupdate process running at any time. Starting more than one kmupdate process causes unpredictable behavior on the search engine server.
