Managing your system

Updated on July 8, 2022

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. On-premises clients can use the Admin Studio System settings page to verify the system settings for a node or cluster, to diagnose configuration issues across the cluster, and to download the prconfig.xml configuration file. For clients on client-managed environments, this page shows you the nodes that you have defined in your Kubernetes deployment

  • Managing 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.

  • 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 system health

    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.

  • Improving database performance

    Monitor your database so that it robustly supports a production-level application. Modify your database to support quick data retrieval and to increase column lengths as your initial requirements change.

  • Managing your high availability cluster

    You can manage your high availability cluster using the HA Cluster Management page or in a Network Operations Center (NOC) integrated with the Pega API.

  • Preassembling rules in an application

    The static assembler preassembles and caches rules in your application. These actions improve the response time for interactive users after a system startup or when you import new rule set versions into the system.

  • Moving applications between systems

    You can migrate rules and data between instances of Pega Platform by using interactive tools in Dev Studio or by using command-line tools. You can develop rules on one system and deploy them on other systems. As a best practice, use Deployment Manager to promote applications.
