7.5. Real Time Variables


Data Filter Clues can also include Real-Time variables that monitor the NetLink's internal clock and calendar

Real-Time variables do not use the Data Filter Format, or monitor the contents of the call record. When Real-Time variables are used, NetLink will check its internal clock and calendar as each record is received. If the time and/or date matches the Clue definition, the call is flagged and stored or rejected as specified by the Data Filter Action prompt. NetLink's internal clock, rather than the contents of the call record, determines whether the record is stored or rejected.

The following Real-Time variables can be used to monitor the internal clock and calendar.


Example 1: To create a Data Filter Clue that will reject call records received on Sunday, match parameters would be defined as w=1. Where w is the Real-Time variable for the day of the week, and 1 indicates Sunday.

Example 2: To create a Data Filter Clue that will reject call records received after 6:00 pm (18:00) or before 7:00 am (07:00), match parameters would be defined as follows:


Where t is the Real-Time variable for the time of the day, and + is the logical OR operator.


•                      Real-Time variables are not defined in the Data Filter Format.

•                      Match parameters can include both Real-Time variables and regular variables, as well as logical and relational operators.

•                      Real-Time variables function independently from the Time/Date Stamp. The Time/Date Stamp does not have to be enabled in order for the Real-Time variables to function.

•                      Values from the internal clock/calendar are not included in the call record, unless the Time/Date Stamp is enabled.
