Robo-FTP Enterprise Framework
Robo-FTP Framework (available with Enterprise Edition) makes it easy to monitor and manage a large number of Robo-FTP jobs. The Robo-FTP Enterprise Framework helps you harness the power of the Robo-FTP scripting language by providing a standard set of scripts that covers the kinds of things most customers need to do. You automate your tasks by configuring “jobs” which are made up of one or more “steps,” where each step covers some basic chunk of functionality like compressing, encrypting, uploading, sending notification, etc. The pre-built scripts handle all the heavy lifting like error handling and storing state so they can recover from catastrophic failure (power loss, etc.). The framework also includes a web-based UI and database back-end which you can use to monitor and manage all your jobs (including scheduling).
The Robo-FTP Enterprise Framework web UI gives you total control over all your Robo-FTP jobs. You can remotely create, edit, and delete jobs and control job execution with start / stop / suspend functionality.
Run jobs on a schedule or on demand through a web UI.
Monitor job execution.
Restart incomplete jobs on restart in case of a system outage.
Control access with Active Directory
The Robo-FTP Enterprise Framework includes a built-in full-featured scheduler for managing jobs.
Set up repeating jobs
Numerous options for intervals
Custom CRON support for advanced scheduling requirements
Jobs are made up of steps where each step covers some basic chunk of functionality. We include a bundle of built-in steps that cover what most customers need to accomplish: Compress, Decompress, Decrypt, Encrypt, Monitor, Pull, Push, Retrieval, Deliver, Notify, Name, and Validate. However, these steps are simply Robo-FTP scripts which you can use as templates to define your own steps.
Define jobs using an extensible set of steps in a simple, drag ‘n’ drop format instead of writing your own scripts.
Web UI for editing job configuration.
All Robo-FTP activity is stored in a SQL Server database to provide fine-grained reporting abilities. Use the Robo-FTP Enterprise Framework web UI to see when jobs ran and see the results of each step.
See job results in simple compact web UI.
Drill down for more details: files processed by steps, log files, execution time.
Enable users to access the web UI to check job status and save calls to your IT help desk.
One of the serious problems with most automation solutions, whether they are off-the-shelf or home-grown, is the inability to recover gracefully from a power outage or other system failure. Often, files are transferred twice or not at all – and either outcome is potentially disastrous! Robo-FTP Enterprise Framework job steps keep track of state at all times so they can always pick up where they left off after an outage.
Jobs keep track of their state in the filesystem. If they are restarted after an outage they will spin up to the step they were executing when they stopped.
Database transaction management guarantees that no file operation is ever duplicated on compatible systems.
Minimum 512 MBs of ram plus 50 MBs per job that will execute simultaneously.
Minimum 1 processor core per 4 jobs that will execute simultaneously.
