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.
