Hide Interactive Analysis Link (RESTRICTSL)

By default, when ControlPoint is used to manage a 2007 or 2010 SharePoint farm, all ControlPoint users can initiate an interactive analyses via a link that displays in the analysis results header.

Interactive Analysis LINK

NOTE:  The Interactive Analysis feature is not available for SharePoint 2013 or later.

ControlPoint users can run Interactive analyses only if Microsoft Silverlight is installed on the local machine.  (If it is not already installed, when the Interactive Analysis link is clicked they will be prompted to download it from the Microsoft Silverlight website.) If you want to restrict this functionality—for example, if your company policy prohibits local installation of Silverlight—you can hide the Interactive Analysis link by changing the Value of the ControlPoint Configuration Setting Hide Interactive Analysis from false to true.

NOTE:  This is an Advanced Setting.

Config Setting RESTRICTSL

 

Use Minimum Activity Date as Start Date (USEACTIVITYDBDATES)

By default, when an Activity analysis is invoked, users are allowed to enter a Start Date that precedes the earliest record of activity retained in the database.  ControlPoint Application Administrators can, however prevent an earlier Start Date from being entered by changing the Value of the ControlPoint Configuration Setting Use Minimum Activity Date as Start Date from False to True.

NOTE:  This is an Advanced Setting.

WARNING:  Depending on the size of your SharePoint environment, setting this value to True may result in significantly longer page load times, as ControlPoint must perform a query to determine the first valid Start Date that can be entered.

Config Setting USEACTIVITYDBDATES

NOTE:  If this value is set to False, ControlPoint can only retrieve data as far back as the oldest record of activity retained in the database, regardless of the Start Date entered.

Changing Default Settings to Improve Application Performance

These configuration settings display in the ControlPoint Settings list under the category Application Performance.

 

Time to Run an Operation Before Timing Out (OPERATIONTIMEOUT)

When you initiate an operation in ControlPoint, ControlPoint will use WCF to start the operation on all farms that are part of the operation.  By default, this WCF request will time out if it has not been completed within 24 hours.  For an operation performed on a home farm, a timeout message will be recorded in ControlPoint Administration Log (xcAdmin.log) stating that the operation was taking too long; however, the operation will be completed normally and you will see results in the ControlPoint user interface.  For a remote farm in a multi-farm installation, the same message will be recorded, but the operation will not be completed but the user interface will "hang" until it is cancelled.

ControlPoint Application Administrators can change the amount of time it takes for an operation to complete before timing out by updating the Value of the ControlPoint Configuration Setting Time to Run an Operation Before Timing Out.

Note that this time is expressed in hours.

Config Setting OPERATIONTIMEOUT

If this value is increased, the execution timeout value in the ControlPoint web.config file should also be increased to the same threshold (although, in this case, the time is expressed in seconds).
