Understanding the Scheduler Assistant [BETA]

The Scheduler Assistant app gives users and admins insights to the number and nature of searches taking place within their environment. It also includes a list of all scheduled searches. 

The “Scheduler Activity” tab contains three dashboards: “SERVER CONCURRENCY & LIMITS,” “SCHEDULED SEARCHES,” and “HISTORICAL PERFORMANCE”. 

“SERVER CONCURRENCY AND LIMITS” includes an explanation of the search scheduler and a hardware dashboard. 

This section also contains a “LIMITS.CONF” table, which displays descriptions and values for each setting. Next to the “LIMITS.CONF” table is a dashboard displaying computer currency limits.  

From this section, users can filter by keyword, search denomination, instance, apps, users, and actions. 

The “SCHEDULED SEARCHES” section includes a dashboard of scheduled, historical, real-time, and auto-summarization searches. 

Clicking on any of the numbers within the dashboard will open a detailed table of the corresponding inventories. 

The Scheduled Searches feature also includes a table of Cron Schedule Details and a graph of searches scheduled in a certain time range. This graph can be filtered to report within a custom time range and a time unit. 

The final section, “HISTORICAL PERFORMANCE,” includes a dashboard of data regarding searches performed within a specified time range. Underneath the dashboard is a table labeled “AVERAGE PERFORMANCE BY SCHEDULED SEARCH”. 

This section also includes a table showing performance over time and a graph displaying CPU usage >25% capacity by search type.

The other tab within Scheduler Activity is “Cron Helper.” This tab is designed to effectively schedule searches by translating and explaining Cron expressions. To learn more about Cron Helper, click here
