Managing processes across the server group

The Manage Process screen provides a single location to view the list of all processes running in your environment. This includes all the processes running on the servers, mid tiers, and any other environment where armonitor is present.

Use this screen to:

Required permissions 

You must have either of the following permissions to access the Manage process screen:

  • AR System Administrator
  • AR System Configuration Administrator
  • Integration Administrator
  • Email Administrator

Considerations

  • (Windows) You cannot add an external Windows service such as Tomcat.exe, Email Engine, and Flashboard by using the Manage Process screen.

  • (LinuxEmail Engine and Flashboard processes are considered as processes and are a part of the armonitor.conf file. Therefore, these processes are listed in the Manage Process screen.

  • You cannot delete a process command that you have already added.

    Note

    You can delete the process command only from the armonitor.cfg (armonitor.conf) file. You need to restart the AR System services after deleting a particular process.

  • A fully qualified server name is displayed only for the AR System server. However, a fully qualified server name is not displayed for mid tier (File Deployer process) and Smart IT (File Deployer process).

  • You can disable the Execute Operation button on the Manage Process screen by setting the Disable-Manage-Process-Operation property in ar.cfg to true. This restricts any random operation on the processes and enables you to only view the processes and their status.
