Settings administration

Purpose

Settings enable or disable functionality such as indexing, classification and optical character recognition (OCR). The tunings section provides settings which allow you to make adjustments that affect the runtime and resource consumption of both Aggregators and Collectors.

Usage

To access Settings, click Policies from the ribbon menu, then click the Settings tab just below.

On initial view, all options are grayed out because policies are inherited from the root organization. The recommendation is to keep the system default. However, to customize the application, clear the “Inherited from Organizations” checkbox shown in the upper right corner of the Settings page which will allow you to change any settings. Remember to click ‘Save All Changes’ button shown at the lower left to apply any changes.

Settings without Inheritance

Feature Settings

Enable Indexing

Indexing will allow for full-text search of all processed files. Once enabled, all supported files will be scanned and indexed as they are processed.

Enable Classification

Classification will assign each file to one or more classification policies. Once enabled, all supported files will be classified into one or more of the activated classification policies.

Enable Optical Character Recognition

Optical Character Recognition (OCR) will convert typed or handwritten text found in images into text. Once enabled, all image files such as jpgs will have text extracted for use in classification and search.

Upload Diagnostic Logs

Upload Diagnostics Logs allows for additional technical analysis of problem situations. Once enabled, logs and engine crash details will automatically be sent to the hosted platform for analysis.

Tuning

Maximum Concurrent Tasks

The maximum number of tasks such as scanning, indexing, and classification that are allowed to run simultaneously. The higher the number, the quicker the processes will take, but more resources will be consumed.

Maximum Threads per Task

The maximum number of concurrent processes per task that are allowed to run simultaneously.

Maximum CPU Utilization

Limits the CPU consumption of Aparavi processes. Before a new task starts, the CPU consumption on the Aggregator or Collector must be below this threshold else the task will not start.

Free memory Threshold

Limits the memory / RAM consumption of Aparavi processes. Before a new task starts, the memory consumption on the Aggregator or Collector must be below this threshold else the task will not start.

Maximum Normalized System Load (Linux)

Limits the CPU consumption of Aparavi processes. Before a new task starts, the CPU consumption on the Aggregator or Collector must be below this threshold else the task will not start.

Maximum Normalized System Load (Windows)

Limits the disk utilization of Aparavi processes. Before a new task starts, the IO utilization on the Aggregator or Collector must be below this threshold else the task will not start.

Maximum Historical Tasks

The number of historical tasks that will be saved on the Aggregator. The Dashboard Status widget uses the historical task information to visualize task history. Once the limit is reached, older task history will be removed.

Trace Flags

Trace Flags allow technical administrators to update logging levels for specific tasks such as engine, network, and queuing. The additional logging provides more information to help troubleshoot issues.
