Automatic Platform Updates and Daily Tasks

Each night, there are a number of updates & tasks that occur on every World Manager platform. These are run overnight, as to not affect day-to-day performance.

Please refer to the full update & task list below (in no particular order):

  • Update Performance Monitor data
  • Update Stats and Reports data

Tip: Anytime you generate reports in your platform, that do not match up with live data, this is almost always due to the fact that you are viewing cached data. These discrepancies will be rectified once the Cached Data script has run (overnight). Cached Data is information that is stored in the short term so that is can be easily retrieved.

Certain tools in the platform, such as; accounts, locations & statistics rely on cached data to retrieve information faster.

What is Cached Data?

Cached data is information that is stored in the short term, so that it can be retrieved as quickly as possible (i.e. without having to re-fetch the same data over and over again).

Certain tools in the platform, such as; accounts, locations & statistics rely on cached data to retrieve information faster. This cached data is updated daily (overnight), meaning the data is most accurate first thing in the morning each day.
