Configuration Options

Genesys Predictive Routing uses configuration options to enable you to specify certain behaviors. Options relating to the AI Core Services (AICS) and the strategy subroutines are configured in a Transaction List object, configured in Genesys Administrator in the following location: PROVISIONING > Routing/eServices > Transactions > List Objects > DEV > AgentScoring.

Important
Before release 9.0.009.01, AI Core Services (AICS) was known as Journey Optimization Platform (JOP).

Agent State Connector (ASC) has its own Application object, where you configure options relating to specifically to ASC functionality.

Agent Occupancy Options

Agent occupancy is the percentage of time that an agent is working while logged in, a service objective that can be specified when building a staffing forecast. Agent occupancy data is taken from Stat Server by URS using the SData function. Stat Server collects agent occupancy data using the StatAgentOccupancy statistic. The routing strategy filters agents by occupancy in the ScoreIdealAgent callback subroutine. The agent occupancy results are used to sort the agents in the target agent group; over-occupied agents drop down lower in the sorted list.

agent-occupancy-factor
agent-occupancy-threshold
use-agent-occupancy

Agent Holdout Options

Agent hold-out enables you to have an interaction wait a specified time, even when an agent has become available, if the available agent is has a low score for the interaction and there is a chance a better-matched agent might become available within the configured time window.

initial-threshold-timeout
score-base-threshold
threshold-relaxation-timeout
threshold-relaxation-step

Dynamic Interaction Priority Options

If an interaction has a low matching score for all targeted agents, it can stay in a queue for a long time. To avoid such situations, you can configure a schedule for incremental priority increases. The schedule is set once for each interaction processed by GPR. The following options control interaction priority increments.

Important
If you already use priority increments for the strategy into which you are inserting the GPR subroutines, you doo not need to configure these options. If you are using priority increments only for predictive routing, use the following options to configure it.

priority-increment
priority-init-interval
priority-interval=10

prr-mode

Specifies whether an instance of Predictive Routing should run as a production instance or as a test instance.

  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default­-predictor] or [<predictor_name>] section
  • Default value: off
  • Valid values:
    • prod - All the interactions that pass through the ActivatePredictiveRouting strategy subroutine are processed using Predictive Routing.
    • off - No interactions use Predictive Routing.
    • ab-test-time-sliced - The periods of time when Predictive Routing and skill-based routing are alternately turned on. The duration of each period is configured in the [<predictor_name>].ab-test-time-slice configuration option in the Predictive_Route_DataCfg Transactions List object.
    • dry-run - Predictive Routing scores agents for your interactions, but does not use the scores for routing.
  • Changes take effect: Immediately


jop-api-key

Specifies an access key that is used by the Agent State Connector or the ActivatePredictiveRouting subroutine in URS—depending on where the option is configured—to access the Genesys Predictive Routing API. To obtain the value of this option, open the Accounts tab in the Predictive Routing user interface and open your account (or create, to add a new account).

  • Changes take effect: After restart


ab-test-time-slice

Specifies the length, in seconds, of the periods of time when Predictive Routing and skill-based routing are alternately turned on when you have set the prr-mode configuration option to ab-test-time-sliced. Genesys recommends that you do not set the value of this option to less than 600 seconds in a production environment.

  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default­-predictor] or [<predictor_name>] section
  • Default value: 1741
  • Valid values: Any positive integer
  • Changes take effect: Immediately


context-id-key

Specifies the name of the user data key containing an ID for the current interaction, using which the Predictive Routing scoring engine can retrieve a record from an internal database of customer profiles (CRM database) and use features from the record to compute agents scores for the interaction.

To incorporate customer profile data into models for matching the agents, a copy of the CRM database must be uploaded into JOP before you train a predictor model. The URS ActivatePredictiveRouting subroutine attaches a context_id key to the scoring request body and provides the value of the user data key defined by this option as the context_id value.

If the returned customer ID is empty or you set the option value to ANI, the interaction ANI is used.

  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default-­predictor] or [<predictor_name>] section
  • Default value: ANI
  • Valid values:
    • ANI
    • A valid user data key name holding a customer ID
  • Changes take effect: Immediately


emergency-scoring-token

Provides an emergency token in the event of continued authentication errors. It is intended for use only in scenarios where the strategy is unable to automatically update the token required to access the Predictive Routing API.

Warning
This option should only be used in an emergency situation.
  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default­] section
  • Default value: empty string
  • Valid values: Any valid security token string
  • Changes take effect: Immediately


format-as-map

The IRD subroutine ActivatePredictiveRouting_v<version_number> and the Composer subroutine ActivatePredictiveMatching now support two types of responses to, and score requests to, the Predictive Routing API, either containing both list and list_ranks fields or just the list field.

If set to true, the response and the score request to the Predictive Routing API contains two fields, list and list_ranks. The 'list' field contains a JSON dictionary with agent employee IDs as the keys and agent scores for the current interaction as the values. The list_ranks field contains a JSON dictionary with agent employee IDs as the keys and agents ranked according to their scores in the target group as values.

If set to false, the response and the score request to the Predictive Routing API contains only the list field. The value of this field is a JSON list object, where the items in the list are JSON dictionary objects. Each dictionary item contains the fields: id (agent employee ID), score (the score that agent has for the current interaction), and score_type (the type of a model, local or global, used to compute the score). The list is sorted by agent score in decreasing order.

  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default­] section
  • Default value: true
  • Valid values: true, false
  • Changes take effect: Immediately


global-map-timeout

Defines the time period, in seconds, during which supporting information about an interaction (such as the predictor name and ID, the model name and ID, the Predictive Routing operation mode, and the interaction time in queue) are stored in the Universal Routing Server (URS) global map. If option value is set to 0, the records are stored indefinitely.

  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default­] section
  • Default value: 7200
  • Valid values: (integer) any non-negative integer
  • Changes take effect: On the next interaction
Important
To improve URS performance, agent scores are stored in the URS global map with a timeout value of 0 (indefinitely). To remove them, you must call the PrrIxnCleanup subroutine after the interaction has been successfully routed.


orig-connid-key

Defines a user data key that the routing strategy used for Predictive Routing must attach on initialization. It holds the original connection ID of an interaction, which is used to uniquely identify the interaction for the Scoring engine. The ActivatePredictiveRouting subroutine checks for the presence of this key when it starts processing an interaction.

  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default­] section
  • Default value: None
  • Valid values: Any valid user data key holding the original interaction connection ID
  • Changes take effect: Immediately
  • Mandatory: Yes


overload-control-timeout

Defines a timeout value that sets the maximum delay, in milliseconds, between the moment when URS receives an Event from T-Server and when URS starts to process the Event in the strategy. If the delay is greater than the value set in this option, Predictive Routing considers the URS application overloaded and temporarily turns off. Once the URS overload ends and the strategy is processing events within the limit defined by this timeout, Predictive Routing restarts.

  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default­] section
  • Default value: 1000
  • Valid values: Any positive integer
  • Changes take effect: Immediately


scoring-token-expiration

If configured, overrides the default token expiration time of 43200 seconds. For example, if set to 3600, the token expires in the URS memory map in one hour, and a new token is requested from the JOP Scoring Engine.

  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default­] section
  • Default value: 43200
  • Valid values: Any positive integer
  • Changes take effect: Immediately


send-user-event

When set to true, the routing strategy used with Predictive Routing sends the EventUserEvent TEvent, which includes the following attributes:

  • AttributeThisDN with a value indicating the virtual queue where the strategy is executed. This is set in the vq-for-reporting option.
  • AttributeUserData containing the Predictive Routing-specific key-value pairs which provide the foundation for reports on routing outcomes presented in Genesys Interactive Insights/GCXI.

The KVP data is stored in Genesys Info Mart, and is then available to the Genesys reporting suite and to Predictive Routing, which can use this KVP data to refine predictor and model performance.

For more information on creating reports based on Predictive Routing data, see Deploying: Integrating with Genesys Reporting.

  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default­] section
  • Default value: false
  • Valid values: true, false
  • Changes take effect: Immediately


vq-for-reporting

Indicates the virtual queue or DN where URS sends the Genesys Predictive Routing (GPR) user event data describing the routing decision made for the interaction. The user event data, in the form of key-value pairs, is attached to EventUserEvent in the AttributeUserData attribute. This should be the same value as AttributeThis DN in the EventUserEvent event.

For more information on creating reports based on Predictive Routing data, see Deploying: Integrating with Genesys Reporting.

  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default­] section
  • Default value: ""
  • Valid values: Any valid virtual queue or DN name
  • Changes take effect: Immediately


use-crm-query

Option name reserved for future use.

  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default­-predictor] or [<predictor_name>] section
  • Default value: true
  • Valid values:
    • true
    • false
  • Changes take effect: Immediately


use-double-selection

Specifies whether URS uses a double selection mechanism, applying a custom statistic when agents have the same score to select the target agent for an interaction.

If the Predictive Routing routing solution is configured to use the agent hold-out feature (the use-setreadycondition option is set to true) and the use-double-selection option is set to false, when two or more agents are in ready state and have the same score for an interaction, the target agent for an interaction is selected at random. If the use-double-selection option is set to true, URS selects a target agent from a group of agents with equal scores based on a predefined statistic. This is a statistic passed as an argument to the SelectDN function by the routing strategy or one defined in an IRD routing block.

  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default] section
  • Default value: false
  • Valid values:
    • true: Predictive Routing uses the double selection method.
    • false: The double selection method is turned off.
  • Changes take effect: Immediately


use-setreadycondition

If option is set to true, the strategy executes calls to the isAgentScoreGood subroutine, which temporarily removes low-scoring agents from consideration for routing. If option is set to false, the strategy does not execute calls to the isAgentScoreGood subroutine.

Important
This option takes effect only when the prr-mode option is set to prod for the same predictor.
  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default-­predictor] or [<predictor_name>] section
  • Default value: false
  • Valid values: true, false
  • Changes take effect: On the next interaction


udata-keys-to-exclude

Use this option to exclude unnecessary user data keys from the scoring context.

  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default-­predictor] or [<predictor_name>] section
  • Default value: ""
  • Valid values: a list of KVP names to be excluded, separated by commas and no spaces
  • Changes take effect: On the next interaction


agent-occupancy-factor

If you set the value of the use-agent-occupancy option to true, and the value of the agent occupancy statistic is higher than the threshold specified in the agent-occupancy-threshold option, the ScoreIdealAgent subroutine multiplies the score received for an agent for the current interaction by a coefficient defined by this option.

  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default­] section
  • Default value: 0.5
  • Valid values: Float number between 0.0 and 1.0
  • Changes take effect: On the next interaction


agent-occupancy-threshold

If you set the value of the use-agent-occupancy option to true, the isAgentScoreGood subroutine compares the value of the occupancy statistic with the value you set in this option. If the occupancy value is higher than the specified threshold, the subroutine multiplies the score received for an agent for the current interaction by a coefficient defined in the agent-occupancy-factor option.

  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default­] section
  • Default value: 0
  • Valid values: Any non-negative integer
  • Changes take effect: On the next interaction


use-agent-occupancy

The value you set for this option determines whether the isAgentScoreGood subroutine checks for agent occupancy. If you set the value to true, the subroutine compares the value of the occupancy statistic with the value you set in the agent-occupancy-threshold option. If the occupancy value is higher than the specified threshold, the subroutine multiplies the score received for an agent for the current interaction by a coefficient defined in the agent-occupancy-factor value.

  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default­] section
  • Default value: false
  • Valid values: true, false
  • Changes take effect: On the next interaction


priority-increment

Specifies the increment by which priority is increased each time.

  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default­-predictor] or [<predictor_name>] section
  • Default value: 1
  • Valid values: (integer) any integer
  • Changes take effect: On the next interaction


priority-init-interval

Controls the time interval, in seconds, the strategy waits before starting to increment priority for a queued interaction.

  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default­-predictor] or [<predictor_name>] section
  • Default value: 300
  • Valid values: (integer) any non-negative integer
  • Changes take effect: On the next interaction


priority-interval=10

Specifies the time period, in seconds, between priority increments for a queued interaction.

  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default­-predictor] or [<predictor_name>] section
  • Default value: 10
  • Valid values: (integer) any integer greater than 5
  • Changes take effect: On the next interaction


initial-threshold-timeout

Defines a timeout, in seconds, during which the isAgentScoreGood URS callback function uses an initial minimum agent score, defined by the score­-base­-threshold option, to match agents to an interaction. After this timeout expires, the minimum score required to allow an agent to handle the interaction is gradually decreased.

  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default-­predictor] or [<predictor_name>] section
  • Default value: 0
  • Valid values: (integer) 0 - <max>
  • Changes take effect: On the next interaction processed


score-base-threshold

This option defines the initial minimum agent score required for an agent to be considered a match for an interaction. After the timeout defined by the initial­-threshold­-timeout option expires, the minimum score required to handle the interaction is gradually decreased. If you set the value to 0, no initial minimum score is required and agents with any score are considered for an interaction.

  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default­-predictor] or [<predictor_name>] section
  • Default value: 0
  • Valid values: (integer) 0 - <max>
  • Changes take effect: On the next interaction processed


threshold-relaxation-timeout

This option defines a timeout, in seconds, after which the minimum agent score required for matching an interaction is decreased by the amount defined by the value of the threshold-­relaxation­-step option.

  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default-­predictor] or [<predictor_name>] section
  • Default value: 1
  • Valid values: (integer) 1 - <max>
  • Changes take effect: On the next interaction processed


threshold-relaxation-step

Defines an increment by which, while an interaction remains queued, the minimum agent score required to match the interaction is decreased after each period defined by the value of the threshold-­relaxation-­timeout option, following the initial period defined by the initial­-threshold­-timeout option.

  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default-­predictor] or [<predictor_name>] section
  • Default value: 1
  • Valid values: (integer) 1 - <value of the max-­score option>
  • Changes take effect: On the next interaction processed


max-score

Defines the maximum score that an agent can be assigned for an interaction. The value of this option is used by the ScoreIdealAgent callback function to re-scale the agent score as the distance from an ideally matched agent for the interaction (assumed by URS to be 0).

The value you set should correspond to the largest possible value returned by this Predictor from the scoring engine. To function properly, this value must be the consistent with the value configured for the Predictor Score expression field. Because the GPR scoring engine and URS have different scales, you might need to adjust returned scoring values using the Score expression field in the Predictor configuration. See the instructions for how to configure this field in Settings: Creating and Updating Predictors in the Genesys Predictive Routing Help for more information.

To take advantage of the most precise values, set max-score to 10000 and the value for Score expression in the Predictor configuration to 10000 * p_score. For example, if scores range from -4 to 10, use the following p_score - ((p_score + 5) / 16) * 100.

  • Configured in: Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default-­predictor] or [<predictor_name>] section
  • Default value: 100
  • Valid values: (integer) 1 - <max>
  • Changes take effect: On the next interaction processed

  • Changes take effect: On restart
  • Introduced in: 9.0.006.03


confserv-monitoring-reconnect-count

Specifies the maximum number of reconnect attempts to Configuration Server before ASC generates log event 60706, for which you should set an alarm. To be exact, if ASC detects a switchover or disconnection the number of times set in this option during the time period set in the confserv-monitoring-reconnect-min option, ASC generates the log event. The cancel event for this alarm should be 60707.

  • Configured in: Agent State Connector object, [default­] section
  • Default value: 1
  • Valid values: Integers from 10–1000
  • Changes take effect: On restart


confserv-monitoring-reconnect-min

Specifies a time interval, in minutes, that ASC uses when monitoring multiple Configuration Server switchover events. If ASC detects as many switchovers or disconnects as specified in the confserv-monitoring-reconnect-count during the time period configured in this option, ASC generates log event 60702, for which you should set an alarm.

  • Configured in: Agent State Connector object, [default­] section
  • Default value: 1
  • Valid values: Integers from 10–1000
  • Changes take effect: On restart


ignore-ascii-characters

Enables you to specify how Agent State Connector (ASC) handles Agent Profile columns with the following unsupported ASCII characters: [Space], -, <, >.

  • To have ASC remove the specified characters for Agent Profile schema columns, but add the affected columns to the schema, set the option to true.
  • To have columns with the specified characters entirely omitted from the schema, set the option to false (the default value), .
Important
Columns with other unsupported characters continue to be omitted from the schema. For a complete list of unsupported characters, see Configuring Agent Profiles.
  • Configured in: Agent State Connector object, [default­] section
  • Default value: false
  • Valid Values: true, false
  • Changes take effect: On restart


ignore-employee-ids

Enables you to instruct Agent State Connector to skip processing for specified employee IDs. For example, the employee configuration might include symbols, such as $, that the database cannot process.

Additional use cases:

  • An employee has an unusually large profile, which would create an unacceptable impact on predictive routing performance.
  • An agent profile contains some data that produces an error when it is submitted to for predictive routing analysis.
  • Configured in: Agent State Connector object, [default­] section
  • Default value: none
  • Valid values: Valid employee ID numbers, separated by commas
  • Changes take effect: On restart


ignore-person-annex-sections

Specifies which sections on the Annex tab of a Person configuration object the Agent State Connector (ASC) should skip when uploading the agent profile to AI Core Services. By default, ASC skips the sections related to Genesys Interaction Workspace.

Use this option to reduce startup time by stopping ASC from loading unnecessary data.


include-person-annex-sections

Specifies which sections on the Annex tab of a Person configuration object the Agent State Connector (ASC) should take information from when uploading the agent profile to AI Core Services. All unspecified sections are skipped. If both this option and ignore-person-annex-sections are configured, ASC disregards the value set for ignore-person-annex-sections and loads information only from the sections specified in the include-person-annex-sections option.

  • Configured in: Agent State Connector object, [default­] section
  • Default value: none
  • Valid values: One, or comma-separated list if more than one, valid section names on the Annex of a Person configuration object. For example, interaction-workspace,interaction-workspace-recents,interaction-workspace-favorites.
  • Changes take effect: On restart

Use this option to reduce startup time by preventing ASC from loading unnecessary data.


include-groups

Use this option to specify a list of agent groups for ASC to monitor. This list is a subset of the total list of groups present in agent profiles. ASC ignores all groups except those you list. To monitor all groups, leave the option value empty (the default setting).

For example, you might set the value of this option as follows to have ASC monitor only two groups: "GROUP1,GROUP2"

  • Configured in: Agent State Connector object, [default­] section
  • Default value: ""
  • Valid Values: A comma-separated list of valid agent group names

  • Mandatory: yes
  • Default value: none
  • Valid values: (string) A valid common substring of AICS endpoint URLs, in the following format: <aics_server_host_name>/api/v2.0
  • Changes take effect: After restart


jop-password

Specifies a user password valid for use with the Genesys Predictive Routing.

  • Configured in:
    • Predictive_Route_DataCfg List object, [default] section
    • Agent State Connector, [default] section
  • Mandatory: yes
  • Default value: none
  • Valid values: (string) The password for any valid Predictive Routing user
  • Changes take effect: After restart


jop-update-thread-wait-timeout

Specifies the thread waiting timeout, in milliseconds, applied to the AI Core Services (AICS) subscribe process. This timeout can prevent a polling loop from taking up unacceptable CPU bandwidth at busy periods.

  • Configured in: Agent State Connector object, [default­] section
  • Default value: 50
  • Valid values: Any positive integer
  • Changes take effect: On restart


jop-username

Specifies a user's username to access Genesys Predictive Routing.

  • Mandatory: yes
  • Default value: none
  • Valid values: (string) Any valid email address registered with Predictive Routing.
  • Changes take effect: After restart


reset-jop-on-startup

Important
This option is removed in Agent State Connector (ASC) release 9.0.006.08 and higher. To delete agents, delete your current agent profile schema in the Predictive Routing application, and then upload an updated schema.

Specifies whether agent profiles are recreated at startup. These profiles are used to query Stat Server about agent statistics.

  • Configured in: Agent State Connector object, [default­] section
  • Default value: true
  • Valid values:
    • true—When Agent State Connector (ASC) starts up, it deletes all agent profiles previously stored in the AI Core Services (AICS) database and recreates agent profiles from the Person data from Genesys Configuration Server for the Tenants that ASC monitors.
    • false—ASC uses the previously-stored agent profiles.
  • Changes take effect: On restart


skip-groups

If this parameter set to true, ASC ignores all Configuration Server data about groups and events connected with updates to groups.

Set this option to true if the scoring request action_filters field contains only the skill expression filters and does not include filters by Agent Group names. ASC then skips reading Agent Group information from Configuration Server, which should significantly reduce ASC initialization time on start up.

  • Configured in: Agent State Connector object, [default­] section
  • Default value: false
  • Valid values: true, false
  • Changes take effect: On restart
  • Introduced in: 9.0.006.03


ss-custom-statistic-name

Reserved for future use.


ss-subscription-timeout

Specifies a timeout, in milliseconds, between each subscription to avoid overloading Stat Server.

Important
  • A series of Stat Server switchovers from primary to backup indicates that Stat Server is overloaded. If you see this pattern, increase the value of this option.
  • To resolve this issue, you might also need to adjust the value of the threads-max-size option.
  • Configured in: Agent State Connector object, [default­] section
  • Default value: 10
  • Valid values: Integers from 10–1000
  • Changes take effect: On restart


ss-monitoring-reconnect-count

Specifies the maximum number of reconnect attempts to Stat Server before ASC generates log event 60703, for which you should set an alarm. To be exact, if ASC detects a switchover or disconnection the number of times set in this option during the time period set in the ss-monitoring-reconnect-min option, ASC generates the log event. The cancel event for this alarm should be 60704.

  • Configured in: Agent State Connector object, [default­] section
  • Default value: 1
  • Valid values: Integers from 10–1000
  • Changes take effect: On restart


ss-monitoring-reconnect-min

Specifies a time interval, in minutes, that ASC uses when monitoring multiple Stat Server switchover events. If ASC detects as many switchovers or disconnects as specified in the ss-monitoring-reconnect-count during the time period configured in this option, ASC generates log event 60701, for which you should set an alarm.

  • Configured in: Agent State Connector object, [default­] section
  • Default value: 1
  • Valid values: Integers from 10–1000
  • Changes take effect: On restart


stat-srv-ws-conn

Important
This option has been removed in Agent State Connector (ASC) release 9.0.006.08 and higher. ASC now supports warm standby connections by default.

ASC can now establish a warm standby connection to a primary/backup Stat Server pair.

  • Configured in: Agent State Connector object, [default­] section
  • Default value: true
  • Valid Values:
    • true—ASC establishes a warm stand by connection to a primary and backup Stat Server (if a backup Stat Server is configured). On startup, ASC reads the connection parameters for the primary Stat Server from the ASC Application object.
    • false—ASC establishes a connection only to the primary Stat Server.
  • Changes take effect: On restart


timebased-statistic-interval

Specifies the interval (in seconds) between statistic update requests to Stat Server for any statistics you have configured Agent State Connector (ASC) to monitor. See Configure ASC to Monitor Statistics for how to configure ASC and, if necessary, Stat Server. Use this option to ensure that you do not overload Stat Server. Environments with very large agent pools (30,000+ agents) might need to adjust the value of this option.

Important
In the initial release of this functionality (9.0.012.01), the only supported statistic is StatAgentOccupancy.
  • Configured in: Agent State Connector object, [default­] section
  • Default value: 60 (seconds)
  • Valid Values: Any positive integer
  • Changes take effect: On restart
  • Introduced In: 9.0.012.01


threads-max-size

Specifies the maximum number of threads used to subscribe for agent updates from Stat Server using a multithreading approach. Adjust the value for this option as needed in your environment to ensure that you do not overload Stat Server.

Important
  • A series of Stat Server switchovers from primary to backup indicates that Stat Server is overloaded.
  • To reduce load on Stat Server decrease the value of this option.
  • To resolve this issue, you might also need to adjust the value of the ss-subscription-timeout option.
  • Configured in: Agent State Connector object, [default­] section
  • Default value: 100
  • Valid Values: Any positive integer up to 2000
  • Changes take effect: On restart


[log] Section

Configure the following options in the [log] section:

standard
all
verbose

standard

Specifies the outputs to which an application sends the log events of the Standard level. The log output types must be separated by a comma when more than one output is configured. For example:

standard = stderr, network

  • Configured in: Agent State Connector Application object, [log] section
  • Mandatory: yes
  • Default value: stdout
  • Valid values: (string)
    • stdout—Log events are sent to the Standard output (stdout).
    • stderr—Log events are sent to the Standard error output (stderr).
    • network—Log events are sent to Message Server, which can reside anywhere on the network. Message Server stores the log events in the Log Database.
    • memory—Log events are sent to the memory output on the local disk. This is the safest output in terms of the application performance.
    • <filename>—Log events are stored in a file with the specified name. If a path is not specified, the file is created in the application's working directory.
  • Changes take effect: Immediately


all

Specifies the outputs to which an application sends the log events of the all level. The log output types must be separated by a comma when more than one output is configured. For example:

all = stdout, logfile

  • Configured in: Agent State Connector Application object, [log] section
  • Mandatory: yes
  • Default value: stdout
  • Valid values: (string)
    • stdout—Log events are sent to the Standard output (stdout).
    • stderr—Log events are sent to the Standard error output (stderr).
    • network—Log events are sent to Message Server, which can reside anywhere on the network. Message Server stores the log events in the Log Database.
      Setting the all log level option to the network output enables an application to send log events of the Standard, Interaction, and Trace levels to Message Server. Debug-level log events are neither sent to Message Server nor stored in the Log Database.
    • memory—Log events are sent to the memory output on the local disk. This is the safest output in terms of the application performance.
    • <filename>—Log events are stored in a file with the specified name. If a path is not specified, the file is created in the application's working directory.
  • Changes take effect: Immediately


verbose

Determines whether a log output is created. If it is, specifies the minimum level of log events generated. The log events levels, starting with the highest priority level, are Standard, Interaction, Trace, and Debug.

  • Configured in: Agent State Connector Application object, [log] section
  • Mandatory: yes
  • Default value: standard
  • Valid values: (string)
    • all—All log events (that is, log events of the Standard, Trace, Interaction, and Debug levels) are generated.
    • debug—The same as all.
    • trace—Log events of the Trace level and higher (that is, log events of the Standard, Interaction, and Trace levels) are generated, but log events of the Debug level are not.
    • interaction—Log events of the Interaction level and higher (that is, log events of the Standard and Interaction levels) are generated, but log events of the Trace and Debug levels are not.
    • standard—Log events of the Standard level are generated, but log events of the Interaction, Trace, and Debug levels are not.
    • none—No output is produced.
  • Changes take effect: Immediately
