Previously, the cron jobs for dashboard and advanced reporting used to coincide, which could cause a hike in CPU consumption. The dashboard reporting job was performed every 15 minutes, while advanced reporting job was executed every 6 hours. That means, every 6 hours both jobs would run simultaneously, and there could be a noticeable reduction of system efficiency.
In Ephesoft Transact v.188.8.131.52, the cron job for advanced reporting has been readjusted so that it never overlaps with dashboard reporting job. Now, it is set at 6 hours and 5 minutes in dcma-reporting.properties file (<Ephesoft Installation Directory>\Application\WEB-INF\classes\META-INF\dcma-reporting) and will run 5 minutes after the dashboard reporting job.
