Managing and maintaining Gateway Servers
The Gateway Manager node in the Administration tab allows you to manage multiple Gateway Servers through a web browser.
The Gateway Manager Client is a web-based client that is set up on the local host, on a specific port. The Gateway Server is a standalone executable, and it begins execution as soon as the Gateway Manager Client is launched. This server includes a web services server that runs as a standalone service.
The Gateway Manager page offers various management operations for the Gateway Server and the Manager runs that are created for collecting data. This page also lets you look at the available consoles and configure additional ones. The Gateway Manager page offers various management operations to deal with the Gateway Server and their Manager runs that are producing data.
If data is missed for any reason, you can "recover" it using existing vis files provided you have been retaining them according to the recommended procedure above. For recovery, you can use a Gateway Server vis files parser ETL with a special configuration. Note the Data Retention section above; the main reason to keep vis files for three months is to enable data recovery. For more information, see Recovering data using the vis files parser.
When you use the vis files parser as a recovery ETL, you can use a single one to recover all the Gateway Server ETLs in a task chain. The particular vis files to be recovered are automatically identified by recovery scripts on the Gateway Server and made available in a predefined directory for the vis files parser to consume. For more information, see.
