Re: Analytics schedule


Hi Edward,
If you are using later versions of DHIS2  (I think 2.29 and above) you can
schedule analytics to run as you would like with the built in scheduler
app. See the docs.

Many people also use custom cron scripts to trigger analytics via the API.
See the docs here

Depending on how much data you have, and the speed of your machine, you
should be able to run analytics much more frequently than once a day. Its
possible to perform "partial" runs, which would only run analytics on data
which is less than a year old for instance, but this too is configurable.

Best regards,
