The Notifier runs on the same computer as the MobiLink server. The Notifier polls the consolidated database on a regular basis, looking for push requests. When it detects a push request, it sends a message to a remote device. It also contains functionality for executing custom SQL scripts, handling delivery confirmation, deleting push requests, and reconnecting after lost database connections. You may use the custom SQL scripts to monitor your data and create push requests.
You can have more than one Notifier running within a single instance of the MobiLink server. Each Notifier keeps one database connection open all the time.
For an example of multiple Notifiers, see the sample located in the samples-dir\MobiLink\SIS_MultipleNotifier. For more information about samples-dir, see Samples directory.
