The SLOffload tool allows the user to manually trigger a database offload to an Oracle or a MySQL database.
This tool cannot be used if a Cassandra general database is used.
To trigger a database offload:
Start the tool by double-clicking the file “SLOffload.exe” in the folder C:\Skyline DataMiner\Tools.
A window will open that lists the different DMAs in the cluster, and the databases to be offloaded.
If there is a configuration issue, the Start Offload button is not available. If so, click the tools button next to Details, adjust the configuration as required and click Save.
If there is a configuration issue, the information in the pane on the right in the main window of the SLOffload tool can be used to determine what the problem is. The pane displays a log that details any issues that the application encounters, e.g. failed authentication.
If the configuration is correct, click Start Offload to start the database offload.
