The administrator should perform certain ongoing maintenance tasks to assure the continued performance of the Actuate iServer System. In addition to maintaining the Reports Server performance, the administrator should perform user administration, which includes setting up users and roles, creating and modifying their preferences, configuring printers, creating auto-archive policies, and maintaining security of the encyclopedia. For details of administration tasks, refer to the Administering Actuate iServer System manual in the Actuate folder of the Siebel eBusiness Third-Party Bookshelf.
The administrator may create new Factory/View/Print Process Groups as part of managing the Reports Server resources. The administrator may increase the number of factory processes to have multiple reports generated simultaneously. For more information on managing process groups, see the Administering Actuate iServer System manual in the Actuate folder of the Siebel eBusiness Third-Party Bookshelf.
The administrator can open more free ports to the Reports Server (particularly in a firewall environment) to enhance the number of concurrent user connections for report generation and viewing. Actuate's Administering Actuate iServer System describes port configuration both for report generation and viewing.
The Actuate iServer System maintains a lookup table of the contents of the encyclopedia volume and updates this table when the Reports Server is shut down and restarted. The lookup table size increases with the number of completed request notifications, report files (ROI), users, or roles. The lookup table does not always automatically decrease in size when these are deleted unless the report server is restarted. Therefore, the administrator should periodically shut down and restart Actuate services (in Windows) or processes (in AIX and Solaris).
