Changing SCM Services Configuration and Settings

You can change the following SCM Services Configuration and Settings from the SCM Services Setup application.

IMPORTANT: After making any changes, remember to click [OK] to save them.

General Options

For both Upload Service Settings and Results Service Settings, you can adjust the number of threads used, the time delay between threads (in seconds) and the intervals (in seconds) at which each thread "wakes up" to check for files to be uploaded to and results to be downloaded from Sensitive Content Manager.

NOTE:  The default values for these settings should be acceptable for most Sensitive Content Manager analysis jobs.  However, you may want to adjust them if, for example, you are processing an exceptionally large number of large files and have sufficient system resources to handle multiple (up to four) threads.  Be aware, however, that if you increase the number of threads and decrease the delay and/or thread interval, you may significantly increase the size of the log file(s).

SCM Services Setup

Trace Settings

You can use the Trace Settings drop-downs to change the level of logging for components of each SCM Service.

SCM Services Setup Trace Settings

Monitoring the Status of ControlPoint Interactions with SCM

You can monitor the progress of active file scans via the SCM Services Setup - Monitor tab.  You can also choose to Auto Refresh the monitor at a rate of anywhere from 1 to 5 seconds.

NOTE:  You can monitor the progress of files submitted/returned even if the ControlPoint Scheduled Job Review is being used as the interface with SCM.

SCM Services Monitor

When all active jobs have been processed, the following Files statistics are reset to 0:

·Files Pending Submission to CA, both "Assigned to Worker" (that is, files for which an upload thread has been designated) and "Not Assigned to Worker."

·Files Submitted to CA that are "Waiting on Results," "In Progress," and "Waiting in Queue."

Viewing SCM Job Detail

You can view the details of ControlPoint SCM Upload Service and Results Service activity in the applicable log file, located in the folder where SCM Service files reside (by default, C:\Program Files\Metalogix\ControlPoint\ControlPointFeatures\Services\ContentAnalysis.   At a minimum, a new log is created each week (with the date that the log was created appended to the file name).  Once a log file exceeds 10KB, however, a new log is created with both a date and time stamp.

SCM Services Logs

The level of detail recorded in the log depends on the SCM Trace Switch values.  The size of the log file is also influenced by General Options.
