The Monitoring Time Filtering Parameter



Monitoring time filtering allows you to reduce the amount of information received from the Windows Client by defining the days of the week and hours during which the Client will record user activity.

Monitoring time filtering can be performed in one of the following three states by selecting the option required in the Filter State drop-down list (on the Editing Client / Editing Client Group page, on the Monitoring Time Filtering tab, in the Monitoring Time Filtering section):

• Disabled: User activity is recorded 24/7 (i.e. 24 hours per day, every day).

• Monitor only during defined hours: User activity is recorded only on the defined days of the week, and during the defined hours. User activity outside of the defined days of the week and the defined hours is not recorded.

• Monitor only outside of defined hours: User activity is recorded only outside of the defined days of the week, and the defined hours. User activity on the defined days of the week, and during the defined hours, is not recorded.


NOTE: In the .ini file, the monitoring hours must be defined in the 24-hour time format.
