Monitoring System Status
You can also monitor the performance of your Application as well as Vault.
Navigate to System → System Status → Performance.
Here you can keep a track of the performance based on the following parameters:
Information: Sectona provides information about application and vault such as property and the current value of Computer System, Processor, Environment Variable, Memory, Network, Operating System, Services, and storage.
Utilization: It is the percentage of time that a component is occupied as compared with the total time that the component is available for use. For instance, if CPU processes transactions for a total of 40 seconds during a single minute, its utilization during that interval is 67 percent.
Sectona regularly measures and records utilization of the following system resources:
Processes: Sectona also lists the multiple processes and threads running on the application and vault. This helps in maintaining the System Health as we get to know about the number of processes and threads concurrently executing.
