Monitoring Channels

Monitoring for Failure

To maximize reliability, you can monitor the status of channels as they run.

  1. In the main menu, choose Channels to display the Channels screen.

  2. Look for channels that have yellow or red background shading. Yellow indicates that there are active alerts on the channel that you have not yet read and suppressed. Red indicates that the status of the channel is Error.

  3. Choose any red icon to go to the Status > Messages screen. This screen shows all messages for this channel. The error message is shaded red and have the same red icon.

  4. Choose any orange icon to go to the Status > Alerts screen. This screen shows detailed information about any alerts for this channel.

  5. Review the alerts and messages to determine why the channel failed and work to resolve any issues.

Monitoring Channel Activity at the Node

You can view information about the channel activity that is happening at any worker node.

On the Channels screen, choose the ID or Name of any channel. The Channels Details screen appears.

When a channel is running, information appears in three tabs: Status, Parameters, and Logs.

AWS Elemental Live constantly forwards _eme and _ eme_ve logs to the Conductor.

Note that channel logs are displayed for 24 hours. Logs that are from 24 hours to one-week old are held in zip files and can be unzipped if needed.

Viewing Channel History

View a summarized history of the channel by choosing the History tab on the Channel Details page.
