OptoMizer® Lighting Audit System - Online Product Tour

The OptoMizer database system can be configured for two different ‘modes’ of operation. The mode of operation affects how the database handles the importing of export files. The two different modes of operation are ‘Master’ and ‘Slave’.

All export files created from the OptoMizer system contain full copies of all configuration tables. Configuration tables are all tables in the system that do not contain project specific data. These configuration tables are shared information that all projects within the system use to pull information. These tables mostly consist of parts tables, but also include design and budget cost templates, design id components, and daily and operating schedules.

In order for an audit to be imported into an OptoMizer database successfully, all parts, schedules, etc. that the audit was created with must also be present in the importing database system.

In order to provide database synchronization among multiple copies within a company, and still have the ability to pass audits back and forth among database copies, the ‘Master’ and ‘Slave’ system has been implemented. In a master / slave database setup, only one OptoMizer database system within the organization should be configured as the ‘Master’ database. All other copies (branch offices) should be configured for ‘Slave’.
