You can review the performance of individual servers or a group of servers using the Administration Console. The servers are arranged in a tree structure.
A series of tabs is displayed along the top of the Manage Servers panel. From here, you can perform the following actions:
Review the performance statistics for the computer where the applications are running.
Review information about connections to the server.
Review information about the applications located on the server or virtual hosts.
Review server licenses and, if necessary, add serial keys.
Review the access log and server log.
The Servers panel occupies the left side of the screen in this section of the Administration Console. The panel lists the servers and virtual hosts that you can access and manage.
Add a new server to the list.
Edit server login information (user name and password) and select options such as remembering the password and automatically connecting when logging in to the server.
Delete a server from the list.
Connect to the selected server.
Ping the server to verify that it is running.
Restart the server or a virtual host.
Run garbage collection to clear unused server resources, such as streams and application instances, from memory. (Automatic garbage collection intervals can be set in the Server.xml and VHost.xml configuration files.)
Stop a server or virtual host.
The Administration Console Applications panel displays detailed information for all the applications running on the selected server or virtual host.
Select a server from the list. The name of each application, along with the following information, is displayed:
Number of instances of the application that have been loaded on and unloaded from the server
Number of users that are connected
Number of users that have connected and disconnected
Number of instances currently active
Number of instances that have been unloaded from the server
Total number of connections that have been accepted or rejected for each application
The Administration Console License panel is where you add serial keys. The panel also displays detailed information for all serial keys authorizing you to run Adobe Media Server on the selected server. The lower frame displays information about custom licenses.
Serial numbers that are added manually (that is, added by editing configuration files directly) to either ams.ini or the <LicenseInfo> tag of the Server.xml file cannot be removed using the Administration Console. Only serial numbers that are added using the Administration Console can be deleted using the Administration Console.
