  • Access It! Universal
  • Access It! Universal.NET


By default, Access It! Universal.NET performs a system archive every time the AIUEvent database reaches 1 million events. This value can be modified using the database configuration utility (Start | Programs | Access It! Universal.NET | Utilities | Database Configuration Utility). On an hourly basis the Access It! Universal.NET service will compare the number of rows within the AIUEvents database to the configured Archive Settings. If the threshold is reached an archive is performed and the following steps are taken.

  1. A brand new AIUEvents database is created
    The AIUEvents database is named after the year, month, day, hour, minute, second it was created. 
  2. The stored procedure within the AIUniversal database is rebuilt so any new events are placed in the newly created database 
  3. The views vwEvents and vwEvents_composite are rebuilt so that the Access It! Universal.NET service queries the old and new AIUEvents database
