Workflow Monitor Overview

Workflow Monitor Overview

You can monitor workflows and tasks in the Workflow Monitor. A workflow is a set of instructions that tells an Integration Service how to run tasks. Integration Services run on nodes or grids. The nodes, grids, and services are all part of a domain.
With the Workflow Monitor, you can view details about a workflow or task in Gantt Chart view or Task view. You can also view details about the Integration Service, nodes, and grids.
The Workflow Monitor displays workflows that have run at least once. You can run, stop, abort, and resume workflows from the Workflow Monitor. The Workflow Monitor continuously receives information from the Integration Service and Repository Service. It also fetches information from the repository to display historic information.
The Workflow Monitor consists of the following windows:
  • Navigator window.
    Displays monitored repositories, Integration Services, and repository objects.
  • Output window.
    Displays messages from the Integration Service and the Repository Service.
  • Properties window.
    Displays details about services, workflows, worklets, and tasks.
  • Time window.
    Displays progress of workflow runs.
  • Gantt Chart view.
    Displays details about workflow runs in chronological (Gantt Chart) format.
  • Task view.
    Displays details about workflow runs in a report format, organized by workflow run.
The Workflow Monitor displays time relative to the time configured on the Integration Service node. For example, a folder contains two workflows. One workflow runs on an Integration Service in the local time zone, and the other runs on an Integration Service in a time zone two hours later. If you start both workflows at 9 a.m. local time, the Workflow Monitor displays the start time as 9 a.m. for one workflow and as 11 a.m. for the other workflow.
Toggle between Gantt Chart view and Task view by clicking the tabs on the bottom of the Workflow Monitor.
You can view and hide the Output and Properties windows in the Workflow Monitor. To view or hide the Output window, click View > Output. To view or hide the Properties window, click View > Properties View.
You can also dock the Output and Properties windows at the bottom of the Workflow Monitor workspace. To dock the Output or Properties window, right-click a window and select Allow Docking. If the window is floating, drag the window to the bottom of the workspace. If you do not allow docking, the windows float in the Workflow Monitor workspace.
