My Alerts display

You can view the current Alert log on the server node produced by your own requestor session using the My Alerts display. Select Alerts from the Dev Studio developer toolbar.

Note: This display is limited to the current Alert log; alerts in older logs are not visible. Depending on your log file systems settings, a new log may start each time a node is started, at specific time each day, or on another basis.

The following summary information is displayed for each alert:

  • Date and Time : Date and time of the alert, converted from GMT to the time zone of the server.
  • Alert Type : A text description of the alert type. For example, the text BrowserInteraction corresponds to alert type PEGA0001, interaction times. Other types are Database ( PEGA002 to PEGA007 ) .
  • Value : The measured value of the Key Performance Indicator, recorded in seconds, as a count, or in bytes.
  • Interaction : The sequence number of the browser-to-server interaction since the requestor session began, as indicated by the Performance tool display.
  • Work Pool : Work pool that the requestor is using, or none.
  • Last Input : A portion of the URL received in the most recent interaction. Typically the text Stream= or Activity= and the name of an activity or stream rule run by the URL.
  • First Activity : For alerts from interactive requestors, the first activity or stream run by this requestor in the current interaction. (This activity or stream may or may not have caused the alert.)

The alerts are ordered by date and time; the first row is the most current. Click the arrow in the first column to expand the row to view more details about the alert.

Note: When using this tool for Customer Service chat interactions, be aware that a single browser session can be served by multiple requestors.
