|Theory of Operation|
Tracking is a
builtin system which can help to get a better insight in your running
workflows. Typically it is very useful for hotfolder workflows which span
more then one daemon and/or server. With tracking you can define "Groups"
which contain "Flows". A Flow consists of a specified number of Steps and
each Step is a certain point in your (work)flow that you want to monitor.
These Steps can then be assigned to the properties of actual workflows.
Everytime these workflows are active they will log tracking-data to the
tracking-database and this data is visualized on an ASP.Net website (IIS
an SQLserver database where it can create the necessary tracking tables.
This database must be accessible for all Integration Tool which you plan
to include in the tracking system.
If Integration Tool WEB was configured correctly you can now login to Integration Tool WEB and use the "Overview" and "Detail" pages to view the tracking information. The "Overview" page contains an overview of all the Flows in a Group. The "Details" page shows more detailed information about a specific Flow in a Group. On this page you will see the different Steps in a Flow and the status of these Steps.
