Subject Re: The Schedulars are not starting automatically

Hi Anupam,

I'm having difficulty understanding what you posted here, but I will
try to explain the difference between "rescan dynamically" and "scan
every document once".  You may find more help also in ManifoldCF in
Action, at .

The first option causes your job to run forever.  The job runs only in
the schedule windows allotted for it.  It periodically "discovers" new
documents, and (depending on the crawling model of the connector) may
check for existence or modification of an already-crawled document.
Each document has its own schedule for doing this.

The second option is more likely to be what you want.  Each job
starts, runs, and completes, being sure to run only in the scheduling
windows you provide.  You then run it again, and again (or your job
schedule makes that happen).  It will do the minimal work to keep your
index up to date.

There are significant differences between how you would set up a job
using one model vs. the other.  I strongly suggest you read at least
the first few chapters of the book.
