  • Create Date - The date in which the client was installed
  • Last Communication Date - The date in which the client last sent a message to central.
  • Total Syncing Tables - The total number of data sync tables enabled for this client.

  • DDL Audit Enabled - Checkbox for whether DDL Client Event Auditing is enabled at the client.
  • Group List - A semicolon separated list of all the Client Group Names in which the client belongs to.

The Central Client Control grid also has the following hidden columns:

  • Client Version - The Conductor4SQL version that is running at the client.
  • Current Issue - The issue that is discovered by the Service Diagnostic Tool (for clients that are behind)

You can filter the results to a specific group by using the Group drop down list in the top left hand corner of the tab

  • Enable All Central Client Queues - this will enable all Central message queues for all clients that are disabled, this option is useful if one or more of the central client queues are disabled. This is usually only useful if you manually disabled all the central client queues.
  • Disable All Central Queues - this button will disable all Central message queues for all clients. While a queue is disabled it can still receive messages but it doesn't process them. This is a useful option when you want to run maintenance jobs on your synced central databases.
