Job activity charts

This area shows the summary for current jobs, policy jobs, and regular jobs in the form of bar charts:

Current Activity: The individual bars represent the number of jobs that are in active, waiting, pending, and scheduled states.
Policies: The individual bars represent the number of policy jobs that have completed successfully, completed with warnings, and failed. The Healthy count of policies shows the number of policy jobs that have completed successfully when all the jobs in the policy are successful. It shows 0 count if one or more jobs in the policy have warnings or errors.
Regular Jobs: The individual bars represent the number of regular jobs that have completed successfully, completed with warnings, and failed.

You can click a bar in the activity chart area to display the job details for that category in the activity table. For example, you can click the Active bar in the Current Activity area to display the jobs that are in progress. Similarly, you can click the Errors bar in the Regular Jobs area to display the regular jobs that have failed.

To return to the default view type for the activity table, click the View all current activity link.

Job activity table

By default, the table lists all current job activities (All activity category).

For the All Activity category, you can view the following information: start date and time, job title, client name, job type, job ID number (also shows the instance and phase), next run time (date and time when the next instance is scheduled to run), progress (current or average transfer rate), and run status.

You can change the view type and also filter the records displayed in the table:

Change the view type: To view the job details for a different job category, click the corresponding bar in the activity chart area. For example, to view the jobs that have completed with warnings, click the Warnings bar in the Regular Jobs area.

Filter the records: To filter the records displayed in the activity table, click the View icon, and set the following filter options:

Plug-in type: To view jobs for a particular plug-in, click all jobs, and then select the plug-in.
Age filter: The configuration setting Number of days to keep job status determines which records are shown on the Job Status page.
