The Platform is the backbone of the product. Grid Manager is a key platform component that enables you to monitor and manage a environment.
A grid is a logical collection of servers, called peers, where the Platform is installed. The peers on the grid communicate with each other and work as a group. They communicate concurrently to every other peer in the group, and can detect which peers are running and the load on those peers.
This section includes the following topics:
- Grid components and their status
- Monitoring grid status
- Pausing and restarting grids
- Editing grids
- Viewing the status of processes
- Reviewing grid history
The following video (5:03) demonstrate the best practices for planning your grid. By preparing the grid appropriately for your environment and what you want the grid to do, you can prevent many issues with sizing, workflow load, and grid communications.
