By default, the ControlPoint application session timeout property is set to 600. This value represents the number of minutes between requests after which a ControlPoint session times out. ControlPoint Application Administrators can modify the session timeout by changing the Value of the ControlPoint Setting Idle Time Before Session is Ended.
NOTE: This is an Advanced Setting.
NOTE: Remember that this value is specified in minutes. The maximum value for this setting is 525600.
When either Discovery or an interactive Web Part analysis is run, document libraries are searched for Web Part Pages from which Web Parts are collected. Because this can be a resource-intensive process, by default only document libraries that have 50 items or fewer are searched. ControlPoint Application Administrators can, however, specify a different threshold by changing the Value of the ControlPoint Setting Maximum Size of Library in Which to Search for Web Part Pages.
Note that, at a higher threshold, more Web Part Pages will be searched, but the process will become more resource-intensive.
NOTE: If you want to include all document libraries in your search, regardless of size, set the threshold to 0.
These configuration settings display in the ControlPoint Settings list under the category Discovery Performance.
When ControlPoint is first installed, the Nightly Discovery scheduled task is disabled by default. If the ControlPoint Discovery Service has not been configured*, operations and parameters which depend on data collected by the Discovery process are disabled. These include:
·Trend Analysis for Storage
·the following ControlPoint analysis parameters (where applicable):
§the Use cached data option
§the Site Collection Storage Analysis View storage for option.
ControlPoint Application Administrators can choose to enable the Nightly Discovery job (via the Schedule Monitor). Once Discovery has run at least once, ControlPoint Application Administrators may choose to enable the applicable operations and parameters by changing the Value of the ControlPoint Setting Show Menu Items That Require Discovery from False to True.
*When the ControlPoint Discovery Service is configured, the value of this setting is set to True automatically.
