The scheduling manager's purpose is to manage the various scheduling requests initiated by the user. From the remote startup interface (StormTracker), which has a web interface, the user can setup a recording schedule, or request the current schedule's recording times. In order to provide this information, the scheduling manager sends requests via VRPN to the Storm Manager. These requests are either to request the existing schedule, or to modify the existing schedule. The user may request to see the existing schedule by pressing the "Existing Schedule" button. The user can add to the schedule by modifying the recording time boxes and then pressing the "Submit new Recording Time" button. Once the user has added a time period to the existing schedule, it becomes visible in a list of times displayed in a scrollable window.
