Working with ARM

As a system admin, you can configure settings and leverage ARM functionality. The ARM tab appears in the tab list when you are in Home mode. It is not visible in the workspace in which it was installed, and it is only visible to system admins.

To work with ARM, select one of the subtabs. Clicking ARM Jobs takes you to the Job list screen, and clicking Configuration takes you to the ARM Configuration page.

Note: It is recommended that the maximum number of ARM jobs running in parallel must be less or equal to the number of enabled ARM Agents.

Job list screen

The Job list screen displays all workspace jobs with the following statuses:

  • Not Started—the job has been created but not started.
  • Paused—the job has been created and was started, then paused.
  • Processing—the job has been created and is in the process of running.
  • Errored—the job has been created and was started, then encountered an error.

The Job list screen includes the job’s name, type, priority, and status, as well as the name of the user who submitted the job and the job’s creation date. Click the name of any job to view more details for that job. If a job has been created but not yet run, you can click the Edit link to edit the job from the Job list screen.

Job statuses and options

The Job Details pages display different content and options based on the status of each job.

Not Started

For jobs that have not yet been run, you can run or cancel the job from the Job Actions console. Canceling the job stops the job if it is already running, and then removes the job from the job list whether or not it has started running. When you click Run Job or Cancel Job, a confirmation dialog appears. Click OK to proceed with running or canceling the job.

Errored

When a job encounters an error, you can click Retry Job to restart it or click Cancel Job to stop the job. In ARM, each stage is broken into a set of tasks. The tool makes note of the tasks that failed during the job so that you can resolve the error and retry the job.

For jobs with a status of Errored, the Stage column on the Job history page displays the stage the job was in when the error was encountered. With this information, you can attempt to resolve the error. Once the error is resolved, click Retry Job.

Processing

For jobs that are currently running, a Progress Bar pane appears. This pane identifies the stage that the job is currently along with a visual display of the stages and percent completed.

The stage name displays with the progress bar. The timer next to the progress bar indicates the amount of time since that particular stage was started. The Time Elapsed timer indicates the amount of time since the job was started.

Processing a Restore job

When running a Restore job, after the workspace upgrade has been complete the following warning message will display above the Progress Bar pane.

Note: ARM will also send an email notification with the same warning message if you are subscribed to receive them.

This warning message indicates that the archived workspace is available with limited accessibility while the job is still processing.

More job statuses and options

Refer to the Console buttons under Job Actions and Error and Status sections for additional options based on the status of each job.

Job Actions

For currently running jobs, you have the option to Pause or Cancel the job from Job Actions console.

  • Pause job—When a job is paused, it will continue to execute tasks and pause it after the stage is completed. Status of the job will change to Pause Requested.
  • Cancel job—When a job is canceled, it will continue to execute tasks until it reaches a safe spot to cancel. This provides a stable location to continue processing from if you retry the job.
  • Terminate job—When a job is terminated, it will permanently remove it from database, and it will no longer be available for any action.

When a job has finished running, a new Job Status pane appears. This pane displays the status, the Job Id, the Time Elapsed, and the name of the user who submitted the job.
