Total Visual Agent

 

Total Visual Agent, by FMS Inc., lets you easily specify the tasks, files, and when events should execute.  The hierarchical display makes it easy to see your scheduled events, and what's assigned to them. 

 


Individual databases can be assigned with specific tasks to be performed on the database.  The new Task Group to an event, and then assign a common set of tasks to be performed on multiple databases. (click on image to enlarge)

New Features for Total Visual Agent 2003!

Total Visual Agent Service: Total Visual Agent 2003 includes the option to run the program as a Windows NT Service. This service runs even without a user logged on to the computer, providing increased security and automated restart if the machine crashes. This feature has been requested over the years, but it required the latest Microsoft technology to enable the management of multiple Access security workgroups.

Support for Access 2003: Total Visual Agent 2003 includes support for Microsoft Access 2003, plus continued support for all previous versions of Access, Visual Basic, and the Microsoft Jet Database Engine.

Description

Once configured, Total Visual Agent runs in the background using a minimal amount of system resources while waiting for the next event. When the scheduled time arrives,  Total Visual Agent wakes up, performs the task, then goes back to sleep to wait for the next scheduled time. If you do not have tasks scheduled during the day, you don't even need a dedicated machine. Just let Total Visual Agent run in the background and leave your machine on when you go home!

Total Visual Agent lets you define and schedule these tasks:

  • Database repair and compact

  • Database copy and zip backups

  • Data extraction while users are in the database

  • Launch Access and run a macro which can run your code

  • Collect database statistics like record counts to monitor usage

  • Run any command line

Define Your Own Schedules

Total Visual Agent lets you schedule and automatically perform these tasks multiple times per hour, once per hour, daily, weekly, monthly, or at a specific time in the future. Perform your tasks in the middle of the night! You can even back up data while users are in the database (ideal for 24/7 environments) or execute your own custom code such as printing reports or data uploads and downloads.

Manage an Unlimited Number of Databases

Total Visual Agent can manage an unlimited number of Microsoft Access/Jet Engine databases across your network. Simply launch it from any PC that can see the databases. When the time arrives, it performs its tasks, then goes back to "sleep" to await the next event.

Total Visual Agent supports secured databases and lets you assign the security workgroups, user name, and passwords necessary to perform the tasks you need.

Manage individual databases or specify a directory and manage all the databases within it and its subdirectories automatically. You can also define a list of tasks in a Task Group and assign databases or directories to it.

A Professional Solution

Total Visual Agent offers a professional solution to ensure your Access/Jet databases perform optimally and are administered properly. 

A complete audit trail is maintained for every task performed, and if an error occurs, an email is automatically sent to alert the system administrator. System administrators will also appreciate the ability to specify a cut-off time for tasks be completed. This ensures that as your databases grow and your tasks require more time to complete, Total Visual Agent never interferes with your business needs and alerts you if it runs out of time to finish.

Licensing Information

Total Visual Agent is licensed on a per installation basis. Each installation can manage multiple databases across the entire network (assuming the machine has sufficient rights).

A runtime version of Total Visual Agent is not available since it cannot be bundled within an Access or VB application (like a control). Total Visual Agent is a system administrative tool and usually runs on a machine separate from the deployed applications. Since it can manage databases across the entire network, its usefulness goes well beyond your application.
Many developers and consultants, who need to bundle scheduled database maintenance with their applications, purchase multi-license copies of Total Visual Agent and resell it to their clients.
