When inventory data is uploaded from a beacon to a FlexNet Manager Suite (on premises) application server, a process to perform a full inventory import (including running the “writers” phase of the import) is initiated. This process is run in addition to the full inventory import process that (by default) runs each night.
It may be preferable to have a full import process only executed once per day, and not whenever inventory data is uploaded from a beacon.
This can be achieved by upgrading to the FlexNet Manager Suite 2023 R1 (or later) release where the default configuration will operate according to this behavior.
Alternatively, it is possible to configure earlier FlexNet Manager Suite versions so that when inventory data is uploaded from a beacon the data will only be staged in the database for subsequent processing the next time the inventory import process runs. This can be configured by running the following query against the compliance database:
SET SettingValue = '0'FROM dbo.ComplianceTenantSetting cts
JOIN dbo.SettingName sn ON sn.SettingNameID = cts.SettingNameID
WHERE sn.Name = 'PackageUploadTriggersWriters'
This issue has been fixed in the following FlexNet Manager Suite releases: 2022 R2.5 / May 2023 (Cloud), 2023 R1 (On Premises)
