Lire::ReportJob(3) Object used to configure periodical report generation


use Lire::ReportJob;
use Lire::ReportSchedule;
my $store = Lire::DlfStore->open( 'aStore' );
my $job = new Lire::ReportJob( "webServer" );
my $cfg = $store->get_report_config( 'my_report' );

The Lire::ReportJob object is used to configure and execute report generation jobs. These objects are usually configured in a store through the lire(1) command.

new( $name, );

Create a new Lire::ReportJob(). The constructor takes one parameter which is an identifier.


Returns the name of this ReportJob.

add_schedule( $schedule, ... )

Adds one or more Lire::ReportSchedule to the ReportJob objects.


Returns the Lire::ReportSchedule related to this object.

run( $store, $period, [$time] )

Executes all the configured generation with a period of 'period' using the $store DlfStore. Once the method returns, XML report will have been generated in the DlfStore and OutputJob associated with the ScheduleJob will have been sent. The $time parameter will be used to determine the time window covered by period. It defaults to the current time.
