Power Down at Weekend

Shutdown LUMBERJACK properly to avoid problems later.

Weekend power down are notorious for powering up… powering down… up…down… This is not good for databases. The system will recover very well if turned off and given enought time to recover. Where time is not given before the next power off this can be problematic. Much safer to power off on Friday night.

Most systems have been set up to log the call records via Fo-Net so you will not lose any data. When you restart the system on Monday morning, the stored logs will be processed automatically.

If your data does not go through a Fo-Net, the decision is all yours! Leave the system up and hope that the power downs are clean or face the potential of a dead database on Monday. Obviously this is recoverable after a call to the Help Desk, but you will lose data until this is reset.
