Syncing two events over network

9 posts in this topic

My queestion, is what is the best way to synchronize autoit scripts running on different computers in a network? to the effect that I could sync them, and then beep() and they would both beep at the exact same time

I'm not sure even where to start. Has anyone done anything like this before?

you do know that commonly pc's are already sync'd by time source, right? so if your scripts operate independent of each other, then just use the system time.

if they are dependent - i.e. if there is some communication between them - then the communication itself should suffice. e.g. pc1 says to pc2: "beep at 17:00 exactly".

This >UDF might be interesting.  Something simple like a beep would be a good way to learn.  Then use it for more comples network stuff.

As always the devil is in the details: the "exact same time" is already pretty hard to define just from the physics point of view. Now over a network is yet another beast.

I'm also going to hazard a guess that you're not trying to just play a Beep (as this could be done much more easily through Task Scheduler on each machine), so how about more information about what you're trying to accomplish?

down to 10ms, although down to one would be optimal

Actually, that's exactly what I want to accomplish. Think beeping computer orchestra. I just need a way to sync them properly

You can use NTP or even better PTP. From what I gather, current Windows NTP implementation doesn't guarantees below 1 to 2 seconds.

I hope this is for a legitimate use.

Another method which doesn't depend / rely on / use computer network: if you really need/value excellent sync is to use GPS clocks like Spectracom, Trimble or similar devices.

Sweet! PTP sounds promising. Lol at GPS clocks, that would be nuts :P

I'll post back if I find anything

As a old member of time nuts I do have a couple of used Trimble GPS clocks (and some Rubidium clocks as well) for sale but I suppose it would be a bit overkill (and costly) for your use.

      TeraCopy Timer - A program of mine, front end really, that I have been working on (on & off) for some time, but not shared here before, that I recall. Third party program TeraCopy is required.
      Many of you will be familiar with TeraCopy, and it has been discussed here at AF on several occasions, in various sub forums, including Chat.
      BE ADVISED - I still use an older version of TeraCopy (v2.27), a goody but an oldy, so have only tested my program with that. It may work with the newer v3.xx, or may be easily adjusted to do so, but I have not yet gone that route. Likewise, I only use it with Win 7 and Win XP, but I don't imagine there should be any issues with newer Windows. Add to that, my program being devised and created in AutoIt v3.3.0.0.
      So what is TeraCopy Timer and why might you need it?
      I devised my program for two main reasons really, based on giving me greater control, using the Free version of TeraCopy, which has some limitations (perhaps even with the paid full version). My program utilizes the features of the TeraCopy command-line.
      1. I was fed up with Thumbs.db files regularly halting the process in Win XP or preventing a folder being deleted after a move. Only happens with Win XP.
      2. I wanted to automate delays between jobs, allowing all HDD's to rest periodically when doing large and lengthy jobs. Letting HDD's heat up too much, can have tragic results or considerably shorten their lifespan. Prevention is better than cure or just relying on monitoring software etc.
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Those familiar with TeraCopy use, know you can run multiple copy or move jobs either simultaneously or concurrently (one immediately after another has finished). With the free version at least, you have no control over precise order or timing, and no way to deal (without manual interaction) with the pesky Thumbs.db files in Win XP. TeraCopy Timer allows you to do all those things, and in a batch fashion.
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Some screenshots and brief explanation
      Main Window

      You can browse to set the Source and Destination paths, or like me, just use Drag & Drop to those inputs.
      Once the Destination path has been set, the MIN (minimalist GUI) button becomes available. In Minimal mode, you get a further level of automation, once initial options are set, and thus less prompts ... none in fact, as jobs are created automatically based on either COPY or MOVE.
      Minimalist Window

      In the Minimalist mode, you can only use Drag & Drop to add a source file or folder, and COPY or MOVE is permanently set when the window first opens, via a choice prompt.
      Assigning a WAIT is simple and easy, and is the latest feature added to the program ... I used a much more complex variant before that (see Advanced Delay).

      The program now displays three file size reports.
      Individual Size of the current (last added) job (Blue label).
      Total Size of all jobs combined (Black label).
      Subtotal Size for each grouping of jobs, defined by a WAIT selection (Red label).
      You toggle between Black and Red, by just clicking that label. If no WAIT has been set, then the values will be the same.
      The wait of 5 minutes in the screenshot above is set for the source shown. It means wait 5 minutes before copying (or moving) that source.
      More sources added from that point, add to a new subtotal. To see the previous subtotal, you need to be at the main (MAX) window, and select the prior job.
      So every time a WAIT is clicked for a source a new subtotal count is started.

      In the screenshot above, you can see the Job name, and that it is Job number 5 order wise. MOVE has been set for that job.
      Selecting Job 4, you will see the previous (complete) Subtotal. Selecting job 3 (in this instance), you would see the subtotal up to that job.
      Click the red Total label and it will change to Black, and show you the total size over all, as shown in the second screenshot above.
      This new WAIT feature is the simplest and best way to use the program generally (in my view) ... but check out the following, as it is not always the case.
      Advanced Delay Window

      The Advanced Delay Options, are a further level of automation, added during the early stages of development, before I thought to create the Minimalist window and show Sizes. It was before I decided to put a lot more effort into the program. As with all my programs though, it is continual use that eventually dictates what I ultimately want to happen, to make my life easier ... simpler, better, smarter, quicker.
      The main difference between this older method, and the new WAIT one, where you specify delays precisely, is that the program attempts to determine the best moments to pause, based on various factors, which you setup and can vary between different types of Job sessions.
      The chief purpose for all the advanced options, is an attempt to cater for the difference between moving a small number of big files and a lot of small files. Moving or Copying lots of small files (hundreds or thousands), as many would know, can heat up a HDD far quicker and to a much higher temperature than a small number of (even very) large files. I guess that is primarily due to the sheer number of indexes that need to be created, and with small files are done at a staggering rate.
      Which method you use, is up to you, and should be governed by the type of job. Both methods can be used together, but not advised if you don't want the possibility of unnecessary extra long delays. EDIT - That said, you could use the WAIT option just for a delayed start of the first job ... perhaps your PC is busy doing something else until then, but you want to go and do something else for a bit, and have it all done by the time you return (i.e. watch a movie).
      WARNING - It should go without saying, that you take all the usual precautions. For instance, don't use move with the only copy you have of precious files. BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP! Don't hold me liable for anything, except for being a nice guy who likes to share.
      TeraCopy Timer v2.0.zip
      Enjoy!
      P.S. I am not affiliated in any way with those who created and provide the excellent third party program - TeraCopy.

Do $rawtimer = ToolTip(@Hour & ':' & @Min & ':' & @Sec & ':' & _MSec()) until $rawtimer = $infotime if $rawtimer = $infotime Then msgbox (0,'Worked','Worked') Else EndIf Case $iMsgBoxAnswer = 7 ;No Exit EndSelect EndFunc Func _MSec() Local $stSystemTime = DllStructCreate('ushort;ushort;ushort;ushort;ushort;ushort;ushort;ushort') DllCall('kernel32.dll', 'none', 'GetSystemTime', 'ptr', DllStructGetPtr($stSystemTime)) $sMilliSeconds = StringFormat('%03d', DllStructGetData($stSystemTime, 8)) $stSystemTime = 0 Return $sMilliSeconds EndFunc I have also tried _GUIToolTip_GetText in order to read the tooltip until the time specified, but it still doesn't work.  Any help would be great.

      Whenever we try to access a network share it will prompt for credentials based on the shared folder settings.
      Like the below prompt


      Once you save them, they are saved in Windows Credentials of Credentials Manager in Control panel (run --> control keymgr.dll).

       
      But not able to found exact file or registry for this setting.
       
      So, can anyone suggest how to do this process of adding network credentials using AutoIT.
