PowerServer Monitor is a small program installed along with PowerServer, which contains four monitors: server state monitor, CPU usage monitor, memory usage monitor, and recycle monitor.

  • Server state monitor automatically backs up PowerServer session information, monitors if PowerServer is in "running" status, and in the event that PowerServer shuts down it automatically restarts PowerServer and recovers the runtime information.

  • CPU usage monitor and memory usage monitor detect the server resource usage, if the usage reaches the peak, they automatically back up PowerServer session information, restart PowerServer, and restore the session information.

  • Recycle monitor automatically restarts PowerServer periodically.

The monitor backs up PowerServer session information that includes:

  • User authentication information

  • References to PowerServer transaction components

The monitor does not back up:

  • Information being processed in active transaction

Important note: to ensure the monitor runs successfully:

  1. The version of PowerServer Monitor must be the same as the version of PowerServer.

  2. PowerServer's license must be Enterprise Edition.
