Alternative way to manage uploading for Flexera logs and inventories
This KB article will provide an alternative to help customer who has a lot of child beacons and discovery rules, which may generate a massive amount of activity log files waiting for upload, and holds up inventory upload.
- Open Windows task scheduler, click on Flexera Inventory Beacon folder on the left panel.
- Duplicate the existing task called “Upload Flexera logs and inventories” with a new task name, so now we have two upload tasks.
- In the newly created task, right click and choose property, find the Actions tab, edit the action, in the Add arguments textbox, change it to “-o uploadRule=ActivityStatus -t machine”, so from now on this task will only upload Activity logs.
- Open up the existing “Upload Flexera logs and inventories” task, edit the argument to “-o uploadRule=Inventory -t machine”, this set the task to only perform inventory files upload.
The above change will result as two scheduled task which only uploads Inventory files and Activity log files, and both can run in parallel and not holding up each other.
The default setting in the argument “-a -t Machine” is doing everything by a single task.
Extra rule names can be viewed in the following registry path:
