Pulse Configuration Options

The application templates for Pulse might contain other configuration options that are not described in this chapter. These options must remain set to the default values that are provided in the application templates. Changing these values might cause unexpected behavior.

You are not required to configure any options to start Pulse. Pulse supplies default values for all options that it requires to function.

GAX Application Object

[pulse] Section

access_url
Valid Values: http://<gax_host>:<gax_port>
where:
gax_host—The name or IP address of the GAX host computer
gax_port—The port of the GAX server
For example: http://pulsedev01:8280/gax
Default Value: http://host:port
Changes Take Effect: After restart
Specifies the URL of the Genesys Administrator Extension (GAX) in which Pulse has been configured. Configure this option only for High Availability (HA) configuration. You must configure this option for every GAX instance. For example, configure GAX1 host computer information for «access_url» GAX1 and GAX2 host computer information for «access_url» GAX2. If Pulse is behind a network load balancer, then both URLs should be empty.

Pulse shows the Collector does not respond error containing a link to the Pulse backup if available when the access_url option is configured and not empty.

Pulse shows the latest available data even if Collector is down, along with a Collector does not respond error when access_url option is empty.

Note: The URL must be accessible from the Pulse user network. If Pulse is behind a load balancer, then access_url should be empty. In scenarios with a load balancer, the health-check must be configured.

cache_expire_timeout
Valid Values: zero or any positive number
Default Value: 1200
Changes Take Effect: After restart
Specifies how long, in seconds, that Pulse stores the results of the object accessibility check in order to reduce the load on the Configuration server.

editable_templates
Valid Values: true,false
Default Value: false
Changes Take Effect: After restart
Enables users with appropriate permissions to edit Genesys-provided templates. If false, even an Administrator cannot edit the default templates. Use this option to remove obsolete or unused templates (for example, iWD or Email). Use in conjunction with the install_templates option.

health_expire_timeout
Valid Values: zero or any positive number
Default Value: 30
Changes Take Effect: After restart
Specifies how long, in seconds, Pulse stores result of previous health check, which includes the heartbeat, DB connection, and Configuration Server connection.

install_templates
Valid Values: true,false
Default Value: true
Changes Take Effect: After restart
Used in conjunction with the editable_templates option, specifies whether Pulse installs or updates the Genesys-provided templates for the current release when Pulse starts. In most cases, when editable_templates is true this option should be set to false.
For example, if you set editable_templates option to true, delete or edit some templates and the install_templates option is set to true, then Pulse restores all original Genesys-provided templates after restart for the current release. Pulse restores only templates from the current release, not earlier releases, which may be obsolete.

snapshot_expire_timeout
Valid Values: positive integer
Default Value: 24
Changes Take Effect: After restart
Specifies how long, in hours, that the snapshot file remains before Pulse automatically removes it. This setting should be no more than 24 hours, unless you plan to provide enough disk space to store additional snapshots.

[configuration-monitoring] Section

check-layout-presence-timeout
Valid Values: 0-3600
Default Value: 900
Changes Take Effect: After restart
Specifies how often, in seconds, Pulse Collector checks for the deleted layouts. A zero (0) value completely disables the check.

db-poll-period
Valid Values: 3-3600
Default Value: 30
Changes Take Effect: After restart
Specifies how often, in seconds, Pulse Collector obtains updates from the Pulse database.
Note: Genesys recommends that you set this option to no less than 15 seconds.

excluded-objects-propagation-delay
Valid Values: 0...3600
Default value: 60
Changes Take Effect: Immediately
Specifies the delay in seconds before Pulse Collector attempts to propagate excluded objects in the affected layouts after an object is deleted. A zero value eliminates the timeout and Pulse Collector attempts to propagate excluded objects immediately after an object is deleted.

metagroup-contents-recheck-delay
Valid Values: 0...3600
Default Value: 60
Changes Take Effect: Immediately
Specifies the delay in seconds between when Pulse Collector verifies metagroup contents (such as Agent Group, Place Group, and DN Group) after notification from Configuration Server notifies Pulse Collector about changes in the contents of the metagroup object. Zero value of this option eliminates timeout and metagroup change is processed immediately.
Note: This configuration option impacts ANY changes in the metagroup (for example, both adding and deleting objects), so new objects added to the metagroup appear in the layout after the specified delay.

new-object-delay
Valid Values: 0-86400
Default Value: 0
Changes Take Effect: Immediately
Specifies the delay, in seconds, between when Pulse Collector receives notification of a new object in Configuration Server, and when it starts to process this notification. Setting this option to 0 enables Pulse Collector to process new objects without delays.

Valid Values: 0-600
Default Value: 60
Changes Take Effect: After restart
Specifies the time, in seconds, that Pulse Collector waits before excluding and closing statistics for the Agent from affected layout that was excluded from the StatServer-based VAG. A zero value turns off the delay and Pulse Collector processes changes immediately.

[heartbeat] Section

  • <number> hr—Sets the number of hours for which the segment stays open. The minimum number is 1 hour.

Default Value: 10 MB
Changes Take Effect: Immediately
Specifies if there is a segmentation limit for a log file. If there is, this option sets the unit of measurement along with the maximum size. If the current log segment exceeds the size set by this option, the current file is closed and a new file is created.

verbose
Valid Values:

  • all—All log events (that is, log events of Standard, Trace, Interaction, and Debug levels) are generated if you set the debug-level option in the statserver section to all.
  • debug—The same as all.
  • trace—Log events of the Trace and higher levels (that is, log events of Standard, Interaction, and Trace levels) are generated, while log events of the Debug level are not generated.
  • interaction—Log events of the Interaction and higher levels (that is, log events of Standard and Interaction levels) are generated, while log events of the Trace and Debug levels are not generated.
  • standard—Log events of the Standard level are generated, while log events of the Interaction, Trace, and Debug levels are not generated.
  • none—Produces no output.

Default Value: all
Changes Take Effect: Immediately Determines whether a log output is created. If it is, this option specifies the minimum level of log events that are generated. The log-event levels, starting with the highest-priority level, are Standard, Interaction, Trace, and Debug.
