When you are using Kyvos in the cloud with autoscaling enabled, you can manage system scheduling and capacity.

Kyvos allows you to manage scheduling and system capacity. 

You can create a schedule to:

  • Shutdown cluster for any time interval
  • Start cluster for any time interval
  • Increase/decrease query engine capacity for any time interval

Depending on your deployment, the system modes are Running, Default, or Suspend mode. 


You can view and set schedules for the Kyvos cluster and query engine capacity. If you are using the Kyvos BI Acceleration Platform, you will also see information about costs.

To view and manage schedules

  1. From the Toolbox, choose Setup and Schedule Cluster Scaling.
    From here, you can view the current schedule for that item. At a glance, you can see what times the cluster is running at which capacity.
  2. To view more details or to change settings, click Settings.
  3. From here you can: 
    • Change the query engine capacity for the cluster to be online or offline.
    • Change which days this schedule applies to.
    • Change the time format between 12 or 24 hours.
  4. If you have made changes, click Save.

Sample schedule

To add a new schedule

  1. From the Toolbox, choose Setup and Cluster Scaling.
  2. Right-click a time in the schedule and click Add Schedule.  
    Or click Add Schedule found at the top right of the page.
  3. For Title, choose a name that provides information such as "Running with 50% query engine capacity". 
  4. Click to choose which days the event occurs and specify the time.
  5. Choose whether the service should remain online or offline.
    For example, you may want the service to be offline on the weekends at certain times.
  6. Choose a query engine capacity. 
  7. Click Add.

Adding a new schedule

To edit an existing schedule

  1. From the Toolbox, choose Setup and Cluster Scaling.
  2. Right-click a schedule entry in the schedule and click Edit.  
  3. Make changes as needed and click Save.

Users will see a message when they try to sign in before a cluster goes down according to its schedule. If they are currently using the system, they will see a message that the server is scheduled to be down in 10 minutes and after that, no requests will be served. When the cluster is down, users are prompted to wait and retry the request later. 

Subscribe to notifications

Click Subscribe Here in the lower right of the page to subscribe to the Notify when the cluster shuts down as per schedule event notifications. You will receive an email with details on how to manually restart the cluster if you need to.


You can adjust the capacity to accommodate peak demand times. For each event you add to the schedule, you can set a query engine capacity. Over time, as you monitor usage, you will learn when you need to increase the capacity and when you can reduce it or take the service offline. Remember to optimize cubes to improve performance which also effects capacity.
