Grinder comes with 4 tools along with the service itself. Here is a brief description of each. I’ll go in to great depth soon.
Grinder Configuration Editor
This is the tool where all configuration for Grinder is done. You specify which workflows are available, what types of files are being processed, and which directory the files are to be picked up from.
Grinder Workflow Designer
The workflow designer is a basic workflow editor that will produce Workflows specifically for Grinder. It provides access to Grinder’s workflow activities.
Grinder Service Monitor
This is a simple diagnostic tool that allows you to stop and start the grinder service. It will also register and unregister the Grinder service with the Windows Service Manager.
The Grinder console is a console version of the Grinder service. This allows you to run Grinder without installing it as a service.
