About Siebel Application State Values
State values contain information about the current operation of a task or the component for which the task is running. Component tasks periodically update their state values to indicate information about their current processing, such as the current phase of operation. State values are defined at the component and task levels. Component-level state values refer to the state of the component as a whole. Task-level state values refer to the state of an individual process for a Siebel Server component.
Two types of state values exist for components and component tasks:
- Subsystem state values. Kept for every component (such as Component Start Time and Component Stop Time) and component task (such as Task Start Time and Task Stop Time) that uses that subsystem.
- Component-specific state values. Kept for every component and component task. Only applicable to the component for which they are defined.
