I have been on holiday for the last few weeks and during that time I managed to get some articles written. Whilst on holiday I was asked by 2×4 if I wanted to have a play with their backup tool and of course I excepted. This article is about that app and it shows you what it can do and how you can do it in the first release. To be honest , and I get nothing for saying this , I think this will turn into a “Must Have App” for all those users out there , and I know a few , that struggle with or do not even do backups. With a couple of clicks you have backed up a project or restored it. No Complicate procedures , just a few clicks and you are done. Anyway , here is what I did and the screen shots that go with it.
Did you know that you can write dos batch files to execute your mrs and dms scripts , Ace asked us the other day how he could sucessfully parameterise these scripts to make them generic and easy to use for multiple projects. In this post we will show you how this can be done.
As you know , Xceed have just released Version one of their excel export. In this article we will show you how it works and how fast it is compared to the IBM SPSS Excel Export.
In this article we are going to show you how you might change a quantum output file into something that can be loaded up into Excel. You might want to do this if you just want to look at the data file.
It’s been a while since our last article on printing to word, but we thought that we should continue as we have completed some more work on this. In this article you will see how to take the code that has already been written and use it inside of a DMS script to produce a word document for every record.
We noticed the other day that Colbalt Sky has added a demo survey to thier site and we though that you should now about it. This survey is another great example of what can be achived with the Data collection Software. Is there nothing it cannot do !!!
Now that we have seen a basic cluster setup , we should expand on it and show you how you can make your cluster as tolerant as possible. This article will talk about splitting out the tiers to different machines and highlight the advantages of doing this.
In this article we are going to talk about a simple cluster setup. If there was ever a setup that you should start with , this is the one. Whilst it may not be cheap as it uses 3 machines , it does begin to give you the redundancy that you really should have in a data collection setup.
In the previous article we discussed the single machine setup and how fault tolerant a setup like that would be. This article will expand on the single machine install and discuss the advantages of introducing additional machines to the setup.
