Scheduler

You can use this tool to create and edit scheduled capturing tasks. This is useful when you want CommView to start and/or stop capturing when you're not around, for example, at night or on weekends. To add a new task, click Tools => Scheduler, and then click on the Add button.

Use the Start capturing frame to specify the date and time when CommView will start capturing. Use the Adapter drop-down list to specify the adapter that should be used. Use the Stop capturing frame to specify the date and time when CommView will stop capturing. You don't necessarily have to check both Start capturing and Stop capturing boxes. If you check only the first box, capturing would go on until you manually stop it. If you check only the second box, you'd have to start capturing manually, but then CommView would automatically stop capturing at the specified time.

If CommView is already capturing packets at the time when the scheduled task is due and if the adapter you specified is different from the adapter currently being monitored, CommView will stop capturing, switch to the adapter you specified, and restart capturing.

It is important to understand that the scheduled tasks can be performed only when CommView is running.
