•
The IntelleView Server application collects
and interprets transaction data from the POS
system, saves the information to the
IntelleView database, provides data mining
functions, and controls the recording and
playback of digital video from Intellex Digital
Video Recorders.
•
The IntelleView Database is a relational
database that runs on the IntelleView
computer. All transaction data collected by the
IntelleView Server is stored in this database.
Both of these applications must be running in order
for the system to monitor POS transactions. If
either of these applications is not operating, no
POS information will be saved to the database.
This will prevent you from using the Administrator
or Operator Client applications to create exceptions
or data mine stored transactions.
Normally, the IntelleView Server and Database
applications start automatically and do not require
you to do anything. However, on rare occasions,
you may need to start these applications manually.
You may also need to shutdown the server and exit
the database for system maintenance purposes.

Determining if the Database
and Server Applications are
Currently Running
Starting Server Application

server application only, use one of the following
procedures.

Windows™ NT task bar if the IntelleView Database
and Server are currently running.

Double click the IntelleView Server shortcut
icon on the desktop.
Note: You must be working at the IntelleView
server computer to determine if the Database and
Server applications are running.
To determine if the Database and Server
applications are running:
OR
1. Display the Windows NT task bar.

Tip: This is where you find the Start Menu. It
normally appears at the bottom of the screen.
