Use the Delaypackage to add a timed delay to the logic.
You can use timed delay to add the amount of time a bot waits before
moving to the next task. You can specify the amount of time in milliseconds or
Example: If we give a timed delay of 5 seconds, the bot will wait for
5 seconds and then execute the action following the delay.
The Delaypackage includes the following action:
Adds a timed delay.
Select the delay type as Regular or
Select the Regular option to delay
the operation for a fixed period of time.
If you select Random, specify the
time range in the From and
To fields for the system to
select a random delay within the specified range.
You can add
Random delay with different
waiting time for each bot run at a given
command level without having to change the bot.
Example: Use Random delay when
running bots simultaneously on several
machines through a WLM queue before executing a database
or recorder, or the FTP action. This would reduce the
number of concurrent requests made to a database or the
FTP server and the performance of the systems will not
be adversely impacted.
Select the time units in seconds or milliseconds.
