Monitoring system health and performance

Monitoring system health and performance

Whenever a BizDataX Job starts, a regular system process is started on one of the machines that has a hosting environment installed. What happens next depends on the job. Typically, job would establish connections to one or more databases, create some files on a local drive, allocate some system memory or utilize some processor time. Managing a hosting environment is important because it supports efficient execution of jobs and is a prerequisite to avoid collisions with the rest of the processes that could share resources.

Users are free to use any tool they like to manage the health of the hosting environment but we recommend using tools that provide MMC Snap-In like UI so users can share common user experience (UX) of both the tool and the BizDataX Management Console. For example, you could add a Microsoft’s Performance Snap-In to monitor different system counters or CPU utilization statistics graphically. You could use Task Scheduler Snap-In to configure scheduled job execution to better utilize resources during off-hours. You could use Event Viewer Snap-In to inspect events from BizDataX or other event logs.
