The 'Service Configuration Tool' will be installed by default on both 'Basic' and 'Advanced' installations of a Master or Slave Migration Service and is useful for controlling service settings, starting and stopping the migration service and viewing service logs from CloudMigrator.
This can be accessed from within CloudMigrator from the Tools menu or by clicking
'Start' > 'All Programs' > 'Cloud Technology Solutions' > 'CloudMigrator Service Manager'
Most of the options for the CloudMigrator service can be left at the default settings. The setting that you are most likely to change is Maximum User Migrations, which controls the number of users that can be migrated simultaneously on one server.
This tool will allow you to :
- Make configuration changes to the service running on the machine this application is installed on. If any changes have been made and applied by clicking the 'Update Configuration' button you will be required to restart the service. This can be done by clicking on the arrow next to 'Stop' and then clicking on 'Restart' The following configuration items can be updated
- Endpoint - the endpoint name for the migration service, should normally not be changed.
- Run Master Service - determines whether the master service is run. Only one master service per migration network should be run.
- Run Slave Service - determines whether the slave service is run. Many slave services can be run within one migration network. Slave and master can run on the same server.
- Heartbeat - the interval between heartbeats, where the slave services provide information to the master service about their state.
- Maximum Start Attempts - the number of times to attempt to start the service.
- Start Attempt Delay (ms) - the time to wait before retrying to start the service if startup fails.
- Migration Limits
- Maximum Complete Migrations - the maximum number of concurrent overall migrations. Has no meaning for the desktop application.
- Maximum User Migrations - the maximum number of user migrations to run per slave service.
- Migration Queue Scan Interval - the interval at which the migration queue will be scanned to check whether any migrations are waiting to process.
- System Timeouts
- Unresponsive Slave Timeout (mins) - the maximum time to wait for statuses from slave services before they are marked as inactive and possibly removed from operation.
- Ignore Unresponsive Slave (mins) - the amount of time to ignore a slave services that has previously failed.
- Migration Item Processing Timeout (mins) - the amount of time to ignore a slave services that has previously failed.
- Available Slave Wait Time (mins) - the time to wait from the start of a migration before failing if no slave service is available.
- Client Master Timeout (mins) - the timeout to apply to messages processed when communicating between clients and the master service. If the master sees a message older than this setting it will be ignored.
- Master Slave Timeout (mins) - the timeout to apply to messages processed when communicating between the master services and slave services. If the slave sees a message older than this setting it will be ignored.
- Service Health Check Interval (mins) - the interval at which the Windows service will checked to determine the health status.
- Master Heartbeat (ms) - the interval between heartbeats, where the master services updates alive status.
- Unresponsive Master Timeout (ms) - the maximum time when master considered as dead. Used to avoid multiple masters running simultaneously.
- Slave Maximum Error Count - the maximum number of serious system errors that can occur on a slave service before it will taken out of operation.
- Failed Migration Retry Count - the maximum number of times to retry a migration if it fails due to a system error.
