Session history

The History displays the complete history of the selected multicast session and its targets.

Parameter

Description

Server Status

This field displays the general status of the Multicast transfer for all target devices together.

Failure Reason

In case of a session failure, this field displays an error message indicating as to the reason why it failed.

Start Mode

Defines the start condition for a transfer. The following values are available:

  • None (clear both check boxes): No automatic start. The transfer can only be started manually through the Start button.
  • After (Min.) : The transfer automatically starts after the defined number of minutes after the connection of the first target to the server.
  • Registered Targets : The transfer automatically starts once the defined number of targets are connected to the server.
  • Both conditions : The transfer automatically starts when either the defined number of machines are connected or the defined number of minutes after the first targets connected to the server are reached, whichever comes first.

Project Name

The name of the deployment project of which the session is part.

Proxy

The short network name of the OSD server executing this session.

Interface

The IP address of the OSD server or its local interface on which the multicast is transferring on.

Max Speed (Mbps)

Defines the maximum speed network allowed in megabit per second (Mbps). The default value is 0 , which means the speed is adapted according to the conditions. The speed is re-estimated on a regular basis or if packets start to fail. You may adjust this parameter during a transfer.

Total Size (MB)

The total size of the transfer.

Progress (%)

The progress of the transfer expressed as a percentage.

Creation Time

The date and time at which the multicast transfer session was created.

Start Time

The date and time at which the multicast transfer of the session was started.

End Time

The date and time at which the multicast transfer of the session was finished.

Last Update Time

The date and time at which the data of the multicast transfer of the session displayed in this view were last updated by the OSD Manager.

Average Speed (Mbps)

The average speed at which the deployment packets were transferred to the target.

The table below the dashboard provides the following information about the transfer to the individual devices that are part of the session:

Parameter

Description

MAC Address

The MAC address of the device.

IP Address

The IP address of the target.

Quarantine

Shows if the device is set in quarantine, possible values are Yes if quarantined or No otherwise.

Sent (%)

Shows the advancement of the transfer as a percentage. If the device has been set in quarantine, this is the size of the all data that were transferred before it was set in quarantine.

Update Time

The date and time at which the data of the multicast transfer of the session displayed in this view were last updated by the OSD Manager.

Register Time

The date and time at which the multicast transfer for this device was started.

Editing the Multicast Speed of a Specific Session

If you notice, that for example the transfer takes too much bandwidth you can modify the transfer rate.

  1. Click Edit next to the Max Speed (Mbps) field.
    The Properties window appears.
  2. Click the editable Max Speed (Mbps) drop-down list and select the desired value or manually enter it.
  3. Click OK to confirm.

The new transfer rate will become effective immediately.

Note:

Be aware, that if you define different bandwidths for the target devices, devices with lower bandwidth might not be able to follow the pace. These devices will then be put in quarantine and another multicast session will be planned for them.
