The Servers page lists the server that hosts the Entwine EMP system, along with its connection status, processing cores, quantities of jobs (completed, running, queued), mean run time and mean queue time. In addition, it includes a control that allows an administrator to set the server for maintenance mode.
Server connection indication
The Status column in the Servers list displays an icon indicating the server status as follows:
- Connected — The server is operational.
- Maintenance mode — The server is in maintenance mode. The Maintenance control is selected and the server continues to process existing jobs and tasks, but it does not accept new jobs. Any running processes continue until they are completed.
If processing is not completed, the recording might indicate (in the Recordings list) that it is pending, and services are listed in the Services page as not running.
- Disconnected — The server is offline.
Server maintenance mode
If the server requires maintenance, select the Maintenance checkbox to change server from standard mode to maintenance mode . When this mode is selected, the Status indicator changes from a green circle to a yellow circle, the server continues to process existing jobs and tasks, but it does not accept new jobs. Recording processes that are in progress run until they are completed. When the Jobs running column indicates that 0 jobs are running, you can perform any required maintenance tasks.
When server maintenance has been completed, deselect the Maintenance checkbox. The indicator changes back to green and the system accepts new jobs for processing.
This information can be useful during troubleshooting.
