Description:

Is there a way to monitor the activity for Clarity Business Process Management (BPM) Workflows? Can we see what activities are occurring on the Process Engines?

Solution:

Administrator privileges are needed to access the engine process within the Clarity Application > Admin Tool > Data Administration.

To access the process Engines, select Data Administration menu, click Process Engines to see a list of all the process engine instances. This view provides data on the status of the process instances, along with pipelines data to allow you to quickly evaluate if a particular area of the process engine needs further investigation.

You can drill-down on a process engine instance name to get more details regarding the process engine and see the Pipeline List section for that engine.

The following list provides a snap shot of the status and a description of the available Process Engines:

Name
The name of the process engine
Active Processes
Defines the number of active processes. Click the value to drill-down and view a list of all initiated process instances running on this engine.
Completed Processes
Defines the number of completed processes. Completed processes provide insight to the effectiveness and activity of this engine. Click the value to drill-down and view a list of all completed process instances running on this engine.
Last Heart Beat
Defines the date and time of the last heart beat. This indicates whether the process engine instance is active and running.
Start Date End Date
Defines the date and time the process engine instance started and when it terminated or stopped.
Process Errors
Defines the number of process errors that occurred on all process instances of a process engine.
Click the value to drill-down and view list of process instances that have errors running on this engine.
Status
Indicates whether the process engine instance is running, stopped, or cannot be determined.
Total Load
Defines the percentage of engine time that was used for processing.
Last load Snapshot
Defines he percentage of engine time in the last time window that was used for processing. A time window is a variable time slice driven by many factors, such as load on each engine.
Pre Condition/Post Condition/Action Execution
Displays the queue length for pre and post conditions and action pipelines. This value gives insight on how backed-up and busy each pipeline is so you can identify if there are any bottlenecks.
Pipeline Loads
Defines the total load for pipelines. This indicates how busy and backed up pipelines of a process engine instance may be. Click the Name link to view pipeline details.
