System Status, Settings, and Activity

V‑Spark system administrators may manage system-wide settings, and may view system status, processing and performance information, and user activity and system events by using two options in the fa-gear.svg Settings menu: System and Activity Log. These options are available only to system administrator accounts.

System and Performance Monitoring

Note

The System Status page was revamped with V‑Spark version 4.0.2-1. Systems using any 4.0.1 release will see data laid out differently from how it is described on this page. Systems using any release prior to 4.0.1-7 do not have access to the System Status page.

Click fa-gear.svg Settings > System to view the System Status page. Data on this page can be used to view system attributes, service status, and data processing flows.

System information is divided into two tabs: System Status shows basic information about host system hardware, along with service uptimes, usage, and other metrics. Processing & Performance shows audio call, folder, ASR, and callback queue and processing metrics. The data fields displayed in each tab are listed in the following tables:

Table 1. System Status Tab Fields

Section

Load Averages

Displays the average system load over the last minute, 5 minutes, and 15 minutes.

Memory

Displays memory usage, including slab and sreclaimable memory.

Services Overview

Uptimes

Table 2. Processing & Performance Tab Fields

Section

Description

Queue Status

Displays metrics for call submission and processing queues.

Calls

Lists how many calls (audio files) there are at various points of system data flow:

Submitted

The number of calls submitted but not yet active in the ASR processing flow.

Active in ASR

The number of calls submitted for ASR transcription, but not yet complete.

ASR Complete

The number of calls successfully transcribed by the ASR engine.

Analysis

The number of calls with transcription results in active analysis.

Waiting for Callbacks

The number of calls with enqueued callback results.

Callbacks

The number of callbacks completed.

Total

Time to Analysis Completion

Displays the minimum, average, and maximum audio processing turnaround times over the following time increments:

  • the last 15 minutes

  • the last hour

  • the last 4 hours

  • the last day

  • the last week

Note

Analysis completion time values do not include callback processing time.

Submitted Queue

Displays the number of calls submitted to each folder for transcription and analysis.

Active in ASR Queue

Displays the number of calls in active processing in each folder.

Folder Activity

Displays a data table of all system folders sortable by the following activity fields:

Files Ingested

The total number of audio and metadata files added to Elasticsearch and assigned a transcriptID in each listed folder. Files deleted after ingestion are not represented in this count.

Audio Duration
