More About Flexera Analytics

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)

Data for reports is automatically copied from the compliance database to the data warehouse database once a week, by default at 6am (central server time) on Sunday mornings. You can adjust the schedule with the Data warehouse export scheduled task. Because this scheduled task calls the batch scheduler for FlexNet Manager Suite, this task waits until other running tasks are completed. For more information, see Server-Side Scheduled Tasks.

The system preserves the 12 most recent weekly snapshots. As well, the last snapshot taken within a month is preserved as a monthly snapshot, and the 36 most recent monthly snapshots are preserved. (The other weekly snapshots taken earlier each month are automatically culled as they are outside the 12 most recent.)
Tip: Snapshots have been collected since the FlexNet Manager Suite 2014 R1 release.
