System Administration

Updated on May 3, 2021
"whats new in platform"

New features for system administration provide your system operation staff with more options for managing your system and data in Pega Platform™. Enhancements for updating applications, managing background processes, upgrading, rolling back changes, and more, increase your administrative power and save administration time.

For example, you can now set a threshold for how long in-process job schedulers can run before an alert is saved in the performance log. Pega Platform saves an alert in the performance alert log at the moment the job exceeds the threshold value. You can analyze the alert directly in the log or by using Pega Predictive Diagnostic Cloud™ (PDC) to identify and address potential performance issues with long-running jobs.
