About System Tasks

System Tasks are generic tasks specific to an operating system, such as:

·         Shutdown the computer

·         Restart the computer

·         Stop service X on a computer

·         Kill Process Y

Many system tasks can also be implemented through script tasks.  They are provided in OptiTune for your convenience, as some of them would be difficult to write as scripts.

OptiTune lets you execute system tasks on a client computer, or group of computers.  Once you have created a system task, you can “deploy” it to a computer or group of computers by selecting the task using its checkbox, and hitting the “Deploy” button.  You can deploy a system task to as many groups as you want.
