There are several options when choosing when an Analysis Script is triggered on the SystemLink server.
Configure Logic for Intelligent Analysis
The first step is to configure the logic the SystemLink Server will use to decide which script is run on which files it detects. This logic uses the search technology included with the SystemLink TDM DataFinder Module to detect when new files arrive or if files are edited and then can search for files based on metadata located at the file, group, or channel level. The SystemLink TDM Analysis Add-on enabled SystemLink Server will only run the selected scripts when data files meet the search criteria. Each Analysis Script defines which queries are run to enable Script A to run only on files detected from Tester A and Script B to run only on files detected from Tester B for example.

Manual, Triggered, and Scheduled Tasks
There are three ways scripts can be executed on the SystemLink server. Scripts can be triggered to execute as soon as new files are detected for immediate analysis and report generation, at scheduled times to avoid peak server load times, or manually with a click of a button.
