I've installed Asset Inventory in a test environment and so far it looks
great but I'm having difficulties finding how to configure schedules of an
enterprise installation to fit the Centralized Control, Distributed Access
model as described on page 10 of the Asset Management Installation guide.
Maybe I'm blind but I don't see how to control when the collection server
passes it's inventory data up to the centralized database. To conserve
bandwith I would want the local site servers to be able to inventory clients
anytime but only pass that information up to the central database at night.
If someone could direct me to the page in the documentation that explains
this that would be great.

Also, does anyone know if the remote servers create a direct connection to
the database over the WAN and insert their own data or does it get sent back
compressed for a server near the database to insert the data?
