Monitor tasks that DataPower appliance manager is handling

Use this page to view the status of long running requests, or tasks, that are queued for the DataPower appliance manager to complete.

There are additional tasks that the appliance manager automatically runs used to maintain the state of the managed sets. These tasks are not included in the list of long running tasks. However, if an error occurs while one of these tasks are running, the error is recorded in the log to help diagnose the problem.

Complete the following steps to use the console to view the long-running tasks that are in queue for the DataPower appliance manager.

  1. From the console, click Servers > DataPower > Tasks.

  2. From the Tasks collection page, view information about the tasks.

  3. Optional: Select the Task ID of the task to delete, and then click Remove.

    When you click Remove, the task is removed from the view, but the appliance manager still runs the task as soon as it is able to do so.

    Tasks are automatically deleted after 24 hours to save memory.

    We cannot remove a task to stop the task from being completed. The only way to interrupt a running task, or prevent the appliance manager from running a task, is to shutdown the appliance manager. Shutting down the appliance manager terminates all running and queued tasks.
