3.2 Mobile Manager Overview

A Mobile Server Farm is a group of Mobile Servers configured to run against the same repository. Information pertinent to Mobile Server Farms is stored in a table in the Mobile Server Repository.

Your Mobile Server is registered on the Mobile Server Farms page during installation. To register the current instance of a Mobile Server, the following information is inserted into the repository.

The Mobile Server Farms page contains Mobile Server and Mobile Devices tabs. The following sections describe each component of the Mobile Server Farm. Topics include:

3.2.1 Mobile Servers

The Mobile Servers tab lists all Mobile Servers that are configured to run against the same repository. As Figure 3-4 displays, this page lists Mobile Server information such as Host name, Port, SSL enabled, Up or Down Status, the MGP instance, start time of the instance, and Mobile Server version.

Figure 3-4 Mobile Servers List

This image displays the Mobile Servers list.

If a Mobile Server instance is not running (status column displays down), the hyperlink for such host names is not enabled. If this page is refreshed after a Mobile Server instance is started or stopped (by clicking on Mobile Server link), the Mobile Server's status is reflected on this page. Using search criteria based on host name, you can filter the Mobile Server display list.

The Mobile Server provides mobile application management and configuration functions. It groups existing mobile servers in a Mobile Server farm and manages mobile applications developed for every mobile server through the utility known as the Mobile Manager. The following sections describe the Mobile Manager's components.

3.2.1.1 Mobile Manager Home Page

Your Mobile Manager home page maintains the following Mobile Server information.

  • General information such as current Mobile Server status, version, and mode.

  • Database information such as database version, JDBC URL, JDBC Driver, JDBC version, and schema name.

  • Data Synchronization information such as MGP Status, In Queue, Out Queue, and Error Queue details.

  • Alert details that describe alert severity and the date and time on which the alert was triggered.

  • Mobile Server components such as Data Synchronization and the Job Scheduler that enable you to schedule synchronization job sessions.

  1. Publish applications.

  2. Create or edit application properties.

  3. Resume, suspend, and delete applications.

  4. Grant or revoke application access to users and groups.

  5. Create or edit data subsetting parameters.

  6. When required, provision mobile application files for public use.

  7. Add WAR files.
