Global Monitoring

Every Workbench view has a global notification area on the top next to the repository selection menu. The area displays various statuses and notifications related to cluster status, backup and restore operations, running queries and updates, and Workbench imports.

Icons in the notification area are color-coded:

Blue (informational)

Represents operations that do not affect the performance of your repository or cluster, such as running queries

Dark orange (warning)

Represents a transient drop in performance, such as when a backup is being created or a cluster node is being replicated. In this state, the system is fully writable and no action is required.

Red (critical)

Represent a state where writes are not possible, such as when a backup is being restored or there are not enough cluster nodes to form a quorum. This state may or may not require some user action for faster recovery.

In addition to that, the background color of the area itself will blink in a paler orange or red color whenever any of the operations is in the warning or critical state.

Clicking on the notification area opens a drop-down menu with additional details. Clicking on individual items in that menu will open the respective monitoring view in Workbench.

The operations that can be displayed in the notification area are:

Queries and updates
