Every system requires ongoing administration, housekeeping, and management. Pega Platform provides extensive facilities for managing the system and managing system-wide data.
- Managing system resources
Admin Studio is a workspace for system administrators, database administrators, and security administrators which provides runtime information and configuration options for system resources.
- Managing background processing resources
Meet highly challenging background processing requirements by creating job scheduler rules to run scheduled tasks and queue processor rules for asynchronous processing.
- Monitoring the health of your system
Pega Platform provides a variety of tools to help you monitor the health of your system. It is important to monitor the system logs to be alerted of possible problems. For ways to identify and resolve system issues, refer to the topics listed below.
- Managing your Pega Platform database
The Pega Platform relational database holds the rules, data instances, work items, history, and other concrete objects from the internal classes of your Pega Platform system. External classes, by definition, correspond to tables in other databases and are not part of the Pega Platform database.
- Distributing applications between systems
The Pega Platform provides several tools to archive rules, data instances, and work items into .zip files and move them from one Pega Platform system to another. This procedure does not alter or delete the source rules.
- Understanding Requestor Type data instances
Users and external systems connect to Pega Platform using one of four requestor types. Requestor type data instances define the types of requestors that can access your system, such as a browser session, an external application, or an internal background process.
