To be able to speed up sending SMS text messages you can use System Database option of Ozeki NG SMS Gateway that allows storing messages in a database instead of a file. To introduce this option first you need to import your messages from file to database. This page provides you a detailed description on how to import your messages into system database with System Database Importer.
When you switch to System Database, you can receive an
error message since the system cannot find messages.
Import SMS text messages to system database
For demonstration I send 200 SMS text messages from a file using Ozeki Performance Tester. Ozeki SMS Gateway has already been installed on the computer and I store messages in a file (Figure 1).
Ozeki SMS Gateway sends out the 200 messages (Figure 2).
Now I switch to System Database. In Edit menu
select Server Preferences. On Databases tab click on System
database settings tab. Here enable Use a database server instead of file
system to store message option.
After the configuration stop Ozeki SMS Gateway by right clicking on its icon in the system tray and select Stop service option (Figure 4).
Download System Database Importer if you haven't done so and start it. Click on the browse button (Figure 5).
Select Ozeki SMS Gateway directory and click 'OK' (Figure 6).
After the form is filled automatically, you just need to click on Import (Figure 7).

Finally, if you followed the instructions you receive a notification if the Import completed successfully.
Start Ozeki SMS Gateway by right clicking on its icon in the system tray and select Start service option (Figure 8).
Finally, I sent the imported messages - in this time from the database and not from the file - and you can see that Ozeki SMS Gateway has sent the messages out (Figure 9).
With the implementation of System Database Importer you can avoid problematic cases derive from the fact that the system searches for messages still in the file and not in the database. With this solution you can be sure that messages will be imported from the file to the database. In this way you can introduce System Database option easily and successfully into your system to speed up sending great numbers of SMS text messages.
