Viewing OpenEdge ABL application requests

You can view the OpenEdge ABL application requests by using the ABL Application: < ABL application name> page. To collect the time and count metrics related to the requests, set the AppServer-specific collectMetrics property to 3 in the file.
Note: Until you reset statistics or until you set the collectMetrics property to 3 in the file, the agent continues to track both active and completed requests. This tracking can consume a lot of memory.
To view the list of requests:
1. Click Resources > Go to Resources in the OpenEdge Management console menu.
All resources managed by your console appear in the grid frame.
2. Filter or search for, and select the required PAS for OpenEdge instance.
For example, type the default PAS for OpenEdge instance name, oepas1, in the Filter field or select Progress Application Server as the selection in the Type drop-down menu and select the PAS instance.
The Progress Application Server: <instance name> page appears.
3. Click an ABL application listed in the ABL Applications section.
The ABL Application: <ABL application name> page appears.
Note: The OpenEdge manager web application, oemanager, must be installed on PAS for OpenEdge for you to manage OpenEdge ABL applications and transport services while the PAS for OpenEdge instance is running.
4. Click Requests.
The OpenEdge ABL Agent Requests page appears. You can view the following ABL agent request properties:
Table 4. OpenEdge ABL agent request properties

Request Start Time
The time at which the client request has been made

You can filter from a long list of requests by selecting an request state from the Request State list and then clicking the Refresh icon to view the requests for that state.
Note: You can also sort the columns in ascending or descending order by clicking the arrow next to the selected column name and then clicking Sort Ascending or Sort Descending, respectively. You can also select or deselect a list of columns by clicking Columns
5. Optionally, select any agent request from the list and click Stop to stop the request.
Note: To stop an ABL agent request, you must have execute permissions (start and stop) that are granted by the administrator. You can stop only one request at a time.
