Managing your system
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.
- 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.
- Quiescing a high availability node
Quiesce is a process for cleanly taking a Pega Platform node out of service for maintenance or other activities.
- Migration by using the Distribution landing page
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.
- Best practices for writing background processing work
To maintain and manage your work resources and to ensure that resource performance is not compromised if a node becomes unexpectedly unavailable, design your work assignments to be thread-safe and use a multi-threaded environment.
A keystore is a file that contains keys and certificates that you use for encryption, authentication, and serving content over HTTPS. In Pega Platform, you create a keystore data instance that points to a keystore file.
