Total Visual Agent

For your Access databases to run optimally and not grow larger and larger over time, you need to periodically perform database compaction. It also goes without saying that you should back up your data.

Fortunately, FMS, Inc. produces a product, Total Visual Agent, that handles these administrative chores. This powerful product allows you to automatically manage and maintain the databases and applications that you create. It allows you to schedule the process of compacting, backing up, and repairing your databases. You cannot perform these important tasks during the day when users are in the applications that you build. Using Total Visual Agent, you can schedule these tasks to be performed in the middle of the night when no one is using the applications. I often use this wonderful tool to schedule complex management reports to run in the middle of the night. Because Total Visual Agent runs the reports when no one is in the system, processing involved in creating the reports does not degrade the performance of users trying to get their jobs done during the day. Furthermore, the reports are ready and waiting for the users when they arrive at the office in the morning.
