Activity Monitor View

The Activity Monitor view measures throughput of remote servers and displays different activity related to processes, job queues, and Server Cluster status. It is used to monitor and in some cases configure different server resource activity. This view is available on the Admin Console perspective only when connected to a remote Server.

This view has several sections:

  • Queues (and Queue Activity graphical display)
  • Active Processes
  • Active Servers (and Server Activity graphical display)

Queues

The Queues section lists Events and related attributes. From here you can manage the number of processes assigned to a queue, their priority, and maximum size. The checkbox to the left of each Queue toggles its display in the Queue Activity line graph.

The Queues section has these columns:
  • Name - This value represents the fully-qualified name of the queue.
  • Active Processes - This value displays the number of processes/jobs currently running. This value corresponds with the Active Processes section, which displays those processes.
  • Queue Size - This value represents the number of processes that are currently queued (and waiting).
  • Max Size - This value represents the maximum number of processes available for this queue.
  • Max Active Processes - This value represents the number of maximum processes that can be assigned to the queue. This maximum value cannot exceed the number of Active Processes based on your Server license.
  • Priority - This value represents the priority of the queue as it pertains to other queues; the lower the number, the higher the priority. There is no maximum number for this scale as it simply organizes the priority by lowest number to highest number. Important and time-essential processes should have a value of 1 in order to process before other queues with higher priority numbers.

The Edit Queue Info button, available in the Queues toolbar, allows you to modify the queue's Max Size, Max Workers (Maximum Active Processes), and Priority. Specific licensing determines if this editing ability is available.

Queues can be suspended and resumed by using the appropriate buttons on the toolbar. You must have the specific queue(s) selected.

Queue Activity

The Queue Activity section displays a line graph representing the Queue Size and time.

Active Processes

The Active Processes section displays files or data currently being processed.

Active Servers

This section lists all available Active Server nodes by IP Address and port, including the maximum number of Available Workers, Busy Workers, CPU and memory usage. The checkbox to the left of each Server Node (Host column) toggles its display in the Server Activity line graph.

To suspend a Server Node, select it and use the Suspend button. An example of a suspended node is shown below. This prevents the selected Server Node (and its workers) from processing jobs/documents/data.

The Resume button brings it back to active status.

Running the -workerStatus in clarify_ctl confirms this:

Server Activity

This section displays a line graph representing activity by percentage of CPU and Memory Usage (as indicated in the Active Servers section), by color and time.
