SAM - Scheduled Activity Manager

Pharmaceutical and crop science organizations use a number of workflows and data pipelines 24 hours a day in order to remain competitive. The Scheduled Activity Manager (SAM) provides an interface to manage regularly occurring tasks (activities). Examples of tasks that can be scheduled with SAM are nightly downloads and integration of public sequence databases like GenBank, data maintenance functions such as taxonomy table updates, and automated runs and analysis of sequencing pipelines such as the Illumina Genome Analyzer Pipeline ™.

Controlling Activities From the Dashboard
The HTML bt_samlist page is the main dashboard for controlling scheduled activities. The page consists of controls, filters, and a table of activities which provides a summary for the status and control of all activities where each activity is in one and only one row.
Clicking on the activity instance icon will launch a page showing activity instance settings and logs. SAM scheduling, downloads, and tertiary processing scripts logs are stored in the database as desired.
