Sawmill Scheduled Tasks

Sawmill’s built-in scheduler is very powerful and very flexible and allows you to setup and run many types of operations in an unattended manner. With this power it’s possible to quickly run into trouble and overwhelm your server if you set up too many concurrent tasks. We recommend that you do not schedule multiple database builds or multiple database updates concurrently. Sawmill tasks use a large amount of resources (memory, processor, disk space and disk access) on your server when you are processing and building large datasets. To avoid issues it’s best to schedule large operations consecutively, even on systems with multiple processors.
