APEL Server and Accounting Portal
Currently the Accounting portal retrieves database tables directly from the APEL server. When the new APEL server is in place, the data will be sent to the portal via the SSM. The portal will therefore need to run the SSM code so that they can receive the messages containing the Summary and SpecIntHistory records. They may also use the Record Loader code to insert the data into their database.
The message types sent will be:
- SpecIntHistory Record messages (in place of specIntHistory table)
- Summary Record messages (in place of UserCPU and SumCPU tables)
The portal runs the apelProcessor decryption code at the moment, however, the messages sent via the SSM are encrypted so it will not be necessary to run this apelProcessor code in future.
There are also some other tables which are currently downloaded from the APEL server, one set:
may be created by the portal as they can now access the data directly.
The other table:
is under review, as it may no longer be required.
