Universal Messaging Scheduling : Tasks
Tasks are executed by either time based (calendar, see Universal Messaging Scheduling : Calendar Triggers Schedules) or conditional triggers (see Universal Messaging Scheduling : Conditional Triggers). There are a number of tasks that can be executed by the Universal Messaging Scheduling engine. Each task corresponds to a unit of work that performs an operation on the desired object within a Universal Messaging realm.
This section will discuss the available tasks that can be declared within a Universal Messaging scheduling script :
*Task Expressions
*Store Tasks
*Interface Tasks
*Memory Tasks
*Counter Tasks
*Timer Tasks
*Config Tasks
To view examples of scheduling scripts, see Scheduler Examples.
Task Expressions
Task expressions are comprised of the object on which you wish to perform the operation, and the required parameters. For more information on the grammar for task expressions, please see the writing scripts help file (see Universal Messaging Scheduling : Writing Schedule Scripts). The following sections will describe the task objects and the parameters required to perform them. The example below demonstrates both Interface, Logger and Counter tasks.
scheduler realmInterfaceSchedule {

declare Interface myNHP ("nhp0");
declare Counter myCounter("myExhaustedThreads");

when (myNHP.idleThreads == 0) {

Logger.report("NHP0 Interface has no idles Threads");
myCounter.inc();

}

when (myCounter >= 5) {

Logger.report("Increasing the accept thread count on NHP0");
myNHP.threads("+10");
myCounter.reset();

}

}
Store Tasks - Channel / Queue operations
Store tasks can be used by first of all declaring the desired object as in the following syntax:
declare Store myChannel("/customer/sales");
The table below lists those tasks available on a Store object, such that the task expression will look like :
when (myChannel.numOfEvents < 100) {

myChannel.maintain();

}

"tag", "key1=value1:key2:value2" );
