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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
