How ClockWatch Enterprise works

Following is a summary of the steps ClockWatch Enterprise performs when a time check is made:



  1. ClockWatch Enterprise is started.
  2. A command is initiated by either:
    - User presses “Start” button
    - The alarm time set in the Once or Daily mode goes off.
  3. ClockWatch Enterprise contacts the individual client running the Enterprise Service Module by making a TCP/IP connection over the LAN.
  4. The client returns its current time.
  5. ClockWatch Enterprise checks to see that the string returned is valid.
  6. ClockWatch Enterprise converts standard time to local time and compares it to the internal system time on the computer.
  7. 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.
