The MOGen utilities can be run once, or run continuously. If run continuously, you can specify how often MOGen should check the integration source for new data. If a large amount of data is added infrequently, set the Minutes field to a large number so the utility has time to complete processing before attempting to start another import, and so that it does not check for new data with excessive frequency.
If a previous process is still running, the timer will not attempt to start again until the previous process has completed.
When running continuously the GP client may be left unattended. Each time the MOGen timer checks for new data to import, it updates a “heartbeat” table. The Heartbeat table is W7158MOGenStatus and is located in the company database. This table can be added to SmartList and monitored to see if MOGen is running. If the last run time set by MOGen is significantly beyond the normal “timer minutes”, something has probably caused MOGen to quit processing.
