The ILLiad Connection Manager downloads and updates requests from OCLC and other systems. It runs in the background as a service on your ILLiad server. The Connection Manager connects to OCLC every 10 minutes, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, to perform all of the ILLiad downloading and updating functions. Since the connection schedule is built-in, no scheduling is necessary. The full Connection Manager schedule is as follows:
- Every 10 minutes, it checks for OCLC requests that have been created or updated in the last 12 minutes and updates the corresponding ILLiad requests.
- Every 12 hours, it performs a resync to check all currently active OCLC requests and update the corresponding ILLiad requests.
- Every 24 hours between 12am-3am server time, it restarts itself and performs another resync.
You can check the Connection Manager Log, the current status of the Connection Manager, and work with errors by double-clicking on Connection Manager in the System section of the ILLiad Main menu. This will display the Connection Manager form with a System Information ribbon and tabs for Transactions and Log sitting below the Connection Manager tab.
