Extended Server Properties

The Extended Server Properties screen displays when you click on the 'Extended Properties' button on the Main screen. It helps you to configure the global options applied to the Pro Cloud Server. Each of these options can also be set in the configuration file; however, the service does not require a restart if the options are changed using this screen.

Description

Audit Time Period

Read-only value showing the number of seconds between audit reports.

Default Max Simultaneous Queries

Default Value:  10

Provides a default value for the setting of 'Max Simultaneous Queries' when defining new database managers.

Logging File Count

Default Value: 3

Read-only value showing the number of log files that should be retained. All logging is written to files named 'SSProCloudServerLog-X.log' where X represents the file number.

File 'SparxCloudServicesLog-1.log' is always the current file. When the maximum file size is reached, all existing files are renamed by incrementing the file number and a new 'SSProCloudServerLog-1.log' file is created.

Logging File Size

Default Value: 1048576

Read-only value showing the maximum file size (measured in bytes) of each log file. When the file reaches this maximum, a new file is created.

Log Level

Click on the drop-down arrow and select the level of information to be written to the log file. The valid options are:

  • OFF - No logging is performed
  • FATAL - Only fatal errors are logged
  • WARNING - Warnings are logged
  • INFO - Information messages that provide general advice on what actions are occurring
  • SYSTEM - More detailed messages
  • DEBUG - (new in PCS v4.1) Normally only used to help debug potential issues
  • TRACE - (new in PCS v4.1) The most detailed level of logging

Log Levels are cumulative; for example, the INFO level includes all messages of type FATAL, WARNING and INFO.

Logging Directory

Read-only value showing the physical directory into which the log files are saved.

Floating License Store

Displays the path of the floating license store file. By default this is:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Sparx Systems\Pro Cloud Server\Service\sskeys.dat.

Floating License Group Config

Displays the path of the floating license group configuration file. By default this is:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Sparx Systems\Pro Cloud Server\Service\ssflsgroups.config.

Temp Directory

Read-only value showing the physical path of the temp directory; by default this is:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Sparx Systems\Pro Cloud Server\Service\Temp.

Set New Password

Select this checkbox to set or change the administrator password for the currently connected Pro Cloud Server.  If a password is set then all users attempting to access the Pro Cloud Server Configuration Client will be required to provide the specified password.

White List

Added in Pro Cloud Server v4.1.

Default Value:  127.0.0.1 and ::1

The White List control shows the list of client machine IP numbers that are allowed to log onto the Configuration Clients and maintain the Pro Cloud Server's settings.

When a client attempts to connect to a Configuration Client the request will contain the client's IP number, whether it presents as IPv4 or IPv6 depends on a number of factors (like the connection method, the type of client application, the client's operating system etc) however Sparx Systems would recommend that for each authorized user both their IPv4 and IPv6 numbers should be defined in the white list.

Use the Add, Edit and Delete buttons to maintain the client IP numbers.

Note:

- An empty White List will allow all clients without any restrictions.

- If you are accessing WebConfig on the machine which hosts the WebConfig website and using localhost in the URL then the browser will typically provide the Pro Cloud Server with an IP of 127.0.0.1 or ::1
