This Knowledgebase article provides information about using the Engine Management Service.
The Engine Management Service is used to control Neverfail software and provides access to the status of Neverfail Continuity Engine and the configuration of the software.
Running the Engine Management Service (EMS) User Interface (UI)
The EMS UI is launched by opening a browser, entering the EMS server's name or IP address, and port 9727 (for example, http://localhost:9727).The Engine Management Service presents information gathered from all servers in the group (Primary, Secondary, and if installed, Tertiary) including:
- Server information from Neverfail Continuity Engine, such as logged events, connection status, file system and registry status, and channel throughput
- System settings, which may be altered by an administrator
Information displayed by the Engine Management Service user interface
The EMS UI displays exactly the same information regardless of where you log into the EMS UI from. It polls roughly every 10 seconds for server information. The system settings are loaded from the server only when Engine Management Service is first opened.
Multiple Engine Management Service User Interfaces
With Neverfail Continuity Engine running as a web service, you access EMS using your local browser. Because it runs as a web service, you can access EMS from any location that allows network access to the server running EMS. Additionally, EMS allows multiple instances of the User Interface to run without interfering with one another.
- System output from Neverfail Continuity Engine, such as logged events, connection status, file system and registry status, and channel throughput, is updated on all panels simultaneously.
Closing the Engine Management Service User Interface
It is recommended that the Engine Management Service be closed at all times when not in use.
Using Engine Management Service via Terminal Services
The Engine Management Service UI is designed to run on a remote client PC, and it is recommended that you run the EMS UI in this configuration. This will allow remote access to the server pair, regardless of which server is active, without using Windows Terminal Services or Remote Desktop.
