• Gyrolab Database Explorer

    • Does the system have a data security strategy included?
    • Yes, all data is stored in a secure persistent database. A backup tool is included in the software package.

    • How do I create a gyr file?
    • Go to Gyrolab Database Explorer. Click ‘Main View’ and then ‘Results’. Select the run of interest, right click and select ‘Generate Result Report’. Save the report on the local disc. The file will be stored with a .gyr extension (compressed format). The gyr file for data from a full single-CD run is approximately 15 MB.

    • Are the loading lists stored automatically in the Gyrolab database?
    • Loading lists are stored in the database as part of the audit trail.

    • How do I backup the data stored in Gyrolab Result Database?
    • Backup of the database is not performed automatically by Gyrolab software. Gyrolab users must create their own routines and set time intervals for data backup. Backup can be performed manually at certain time points or set up as a scheduled, repetitive task. Please see Chapter F4 of the User Guide to learn more about how to perform and schedule Gyrolab database backup.

    • Can Gyrolab runs be saved on the network and if so with the ‘Copy file(s) to disc’ option?
    • Runs are stored in the Gyrolab database. You should backup the database regularly onto a network. File copies can be generated from the Gyrolab database at any time, directed to any destination.

    • Are file names unique and not replaceable?
    • Every file has a unique database ID. Files cannot be replaced.
