Administration Window Overview

The Webspace Admin Console displays information about your Webspace Server. This information includes:

  • Server activity and processes taking place on the server.
  • A list of the users logged onto a selected Webspace Server.
  • Applications users are running.
  • Times that applications were started.

This information enables you to perform several administrative tasks, such as:

  • Determine which applications are no longer being used and whether additional servers are required.
  • Monitor clients.
  • Administer sessions and processes including: Terminate user and End processes running on the server.
  • Control client access to the Webspace Server.

Window Overview

The following figure shows an example of the Webspace Admin Console.

The following table outlines each of the areas in the Webspace Admin Console.

Screen Area Description
The Tools menu is where you access the Host Options dialog box to configure your Webspace Server.

The Tree View Pane

The tree view portion of this window displays a list of Webspace Servers on the network and their status. For a list of icons and descriptions, refer to the Tree View Icons section in this topic.
Important: You must belong to the Administrators group on each Webspace Server in order to access that server from the Webspace Admin Console. Without administrative rights on a server, you will be unable to add applications and terminate processes, and so on.
If a red X displays on the icon, the administrator does not have administrative rights on the server. If the server's icon has a red X and is grayed out, the server is no longer running the Application Publishing Service, or it has been turned off. A dependent server is orphaned when its relay server has gone down.

The Sessions Tab

Sessions can be connected, terminated or refreshed through this tab on the Webspace Admin Console window. Information displayed about each session includes: a unique identifier for the session name, the network user name for that session, number of clients connected to a session (2 or higher indicates the session is being shadowed), the IP address of the client computer from which the user is accessing the server, the date and time the user started the application, and the number of applications the user is accessing.

The Processes Tab

Process information can be viewed, refreshed, or terminated from this tab.
Note: Ending a process without giving users a chance to close their application can result in the loss of data.

The Applications Tab

The Status Bar The status bar provides the following for a selected Webspace Server currently being accessed:
  • Name.
