Talend Activity Monitoring Console

Note

In Talend Administration Center, Talend Activity Monitoring Console is a Web application that has to be deployed in the Tomcat server before it can appear in the Talend Activity Monitoring Console menu. For more information, see Talend Installation and Upgrade Guide.

You can monitor your Talend Job activities from Talend Administration Center when database tables are used as the datasources.

To access Talend Activity Monitoring Console through the Talend Administration Center interface for the first time, proceed as follows:

Prerequisite: Make sure that the AMC URL has been defined on the Configuration page of Talend Administration Center before. For more information, see Talend Administration Center User Guide.

  1. In Talend Administration Center, expand the Monitoring node. Then, click Activity Monitoring Console.

  2. Next to the Connections list on the Activity Monitoring Console page, click the [+] button to open the [Edit/Create Connection] configuration window.

    Later, you can click to edit the connection or to delete the connection if needed.

    Warning

    By default, the Monitoring node allows you to connect to the MySQL database. If you want to establish a connection to any other database, you must first put the corresponding jar file in the Tomcat lib folder. Otherwise, your database connection cannot be initialized.

  3. Enter the relevant connection information.

  4. Click Save to add the database connection to the Connections list. You can click Check connection to test the database connection or click Cancel to close the window without saving any changes.

  5. Select the connection from the Connections list. The corresponding view is displayed with the connection.

If more than one connection exists in the Connections list, select the active connection of the database where you save the log tables and then view the monitored information.
