ClockWatch Enterprise Technical Specs
How Does it Work?
How ClockWatch Enterprise works
Following is a summary of the steps ClockWatch Enterprise performs when a time
check is made:
- ClockWatch Enterprise is started.
- A command is initiated by either:
- User presses Start button
- The alarm time set in the Once or Daily mode goes off.
- ClockWatch Enterprise contacts the individual client running the
Enterprise Service Module by making a TCP/IP
connection over the LAN.
- The client returns its current time.
- ClockWatch Enterprise checks to see that the string returned is valid.
- ClockWatch Enterprise converts standard time to local time and compares it to
the internal system time on the computer.
- If the time difference is within program thresholds the time adjustment is
made on a subsequent time set. A summary of the action is written to the log file.
