Administration Guide

Job Queue

In this page, users can view the current pending job number, average scan time, and arrival rate of each job queue. The associated VM is also displayed for each queue. The user can click the VM name to go to the Scan Profile page and change its settings.

Users can use this page's information to ensure each Job Queue is not piling up with too many jobs. If there are a lot of jobs pending in the Job Queue, the user can try to associate it with less VM types and/or allocate more clone numbers to its associated VM types.

To refresh the data, click the Job Queue menu again or the Refresh button on the top of the web site.
