System

This option enables you to view system, database, security, configuration and workweek information.

From the System option on the Admin tab, you can view the status of the Monitor system. You can select from the following five pages:
Server Information
This shows the details about the Monitor system and enables you to reset and rerun internal daemons.
Database Information
This enables you to configure and control the database, check database status and review database statistics.
Security Information
This shows a list of the tags and ISV daemons that are currently in server memory, along with their security status.
Configuration Information
This shows scheduled maintenance tasks, which can be configured and existing configuration files, which can be edited.
Workweek Information
This shows you the work week definition, which can be edited.

Server Information

You can reread configuration files and restart Monitor's internal daemons, with the reset button.

Database Information

You can use the System page to configure and control the database, check database status and review statistics.



Figure 2. System Database Configuration

You can edit the path to the database storage location as seen by the specified host.

We highly recommend that you use a path that is located on the specified host's local disk for performance and reliability reasons.

We also recommend that you include this product's instance name (licmon_yb) in the path to help identify the directory's purpose.

System Tasks Configuration



Figure 3. System Tasks Configuration
These tasks require the vovdbd daemon to be running. You can perform the following tasks:
  • Control loading of sampled checkouts only. Checkouts and denials gathered through debug log parsing are loaded by the parsing job regardless of this setting.
  • Change the times to run daily maintenance tasks.
  • Change the backup storage location as seen by the database host. Network storage is acceptable for database backups.

It is recommended to include this product's instance name (licmon_yb) in the path to help identify the directory's purpose.

System Database Information



Figure 4. System Database Information

When you enter a date and click on Trim Database, it will trim the data to that date you selected, but in the database only. The checkout files will not be deleted or touched.

When you click on Deobfuscate Checkout, you will decrypt your data and load it into your database again, (once licensing has been updated or reissued).

Security Information

This shows a list of the tags and ISV daemons that are currently in server memory, along with their security status. The large page has been broken into three sections, so each can be explained.

The top portion of the Security Information page shows a list of the tags and ISV daemons that are currently in server memory, along with their security status.
