How to determine if accelerator is setup or enabled

VMG asked on June 4, 2019
I am taking over a flex reporting system without knowing how it was setup. I see in docs the sql Data Compressor and accelerator is recommended for mssql but not sure if we have it setup. After reviewing the docs I do not see a service on the windows server and not sure where in the linux server to check if this is configured. I am new to Flex.

Thank you for writing to us.
We would like to point out that the Data Compressor is used when working with databases whereas Flexmonster Accelerator is used when working with Cubes.
Depending on the type of your data source either Flexmonster Data Compressor or Flexmonster Accelerator could be used in your case.
Please note that Flexmonster Data Compressor is available for the following technologies: .NET, Java, PHP, and Node.js.
Regarding Flexmonster Accelerator, there are three ways how it can be used :

  1. using the console application
  2. install Flexmonster Accelerator as a Windows Service
  3. refer the Accelerator as a DLL

Please let us know if this helps to figure things out.
Feel free to contact us in case any further questions arise.
We are looking forward to hearing from you.
