Business Objects - AURA-Grants Data Warehouse Load and Maintenance Schedule
This article provides information about the AURA-Grants Data Warehouse Load and Maintenance Schedule.
Beginning July 11, 2011, the AURA-Grants data warehouse will normally be available to Business Objects users 24x7 with a 10-minute nightly outage window at midnight for routine Business Objects back-up. Periodic system work and other database maintenance activities are typically scheduled to occur outside regular business hours of 8:30AM to 5:00PM, Monday to Friday.
Data from the AURA-Grants module will be updated nightly; data from the previous night’s update becomes available at 6 a.m. each morning. Users are notified by email if a nightly update fails.
NOTE: System problems or other delays in maintenance activities could result in unanticipated outages beyond the published schedule.
Conversion and Data Refresh
The AURA-Grants reporting system is built on a data warehouse that is refreshed nightly with data from the AURA-Grants module. In addition to this nightly refresh, the data warehouse also provides historical data converted from TRACS, University Research Administration's prior system, for proposals dating back to July 2001.
