Monitoring App Controller

Jun 14, 2013

The App Controller Dashboard displays a summary of application and user access in App Controller. The Dashboard refreshes information every minute. You can also refresh the data manually at any time.

You can review the following information:

  • Total number of users who logon by Receiver type
  • Total number of sessions
  • Total number of configured applications in App Controller
  • Total number of applications started by users

The Apps Used counter shows data from the previous 24 hours. If you delete applications, the number of applications configured might not be the same as the number of applications started. For example, if you configure 10 applications and users start all 10, and then you delete 3 applications, all within 24 hours, the Dashboard shows 7 applications used, but still shows 10 apps started. Refreshing the Dashboard does not affect this counter. App Controller removes deleted applications automatically from the counter 24 hours after the last time users started the application.

You can configure App Controller to send log files to either a syslog server or to a server in your secure network. You configure log settings in the App Controller management console as part of the system settings.

You can also use the command-line console to configure logs to troubleshoot issues that may arise with App Controller. You can revert back to the default log level control, create a new log, or display the current log.

You can transfer information and audit logs to a syslog server or file server in your network. You can also transfer the counters log to a file server in your network. If you select Audit, all logs are sent to the syslog server or file server. Audit logs contain a chronological record of system activities for App Controller.

Administrator logs are stored in the file AdminAuditLogFile.txt. User logs are stored in the file UserAuditLogfile.txt.

If you deploy App Controller with StoreFront, the following user activities do not appear in the audit logs:

  • Subscribing to applications
  • Unsubscribing from applications
  • Logon
  • Logoff
