Manage and monitor compute and storage

Users can view the processing (compute) and storage utilization of the ArcGIS Velocity subscription directly in the ArcGIS Velocity application. Overall processing (compute) and storage consumption are summarized on the Home page and detailed information is available to administrators on the Feeds and Analytics page (the Compute Utilization page for the Dedicated license) and the Storage Utilization page.

Subscription utilization dashboard

For organization administrators, the Home page in the ArcGIS Velocity application displays a dashboard reporting the subscription utilization. For the Standard and Advanced license levels, this is percentage of running feeds and analytics (out of the maximum allowed) and the percentage storage utilization. For the Dedicated license, this is the percentage compute and storage utilized.

Home page showing subscription utilization

The compute and storage gauges will appear green if the percentages are under the alerting thresholds and in shades of orange and red as the percent utilized approaches 100%.

For storage, administrators will receive an alert if storage utilization exceeds 50%. For the Advanced and Dedicated license levels, if the percent of utilized storage exceeds 75%, additional storage is automatically added to the subscription. Once storage is added, it cannot be removed.

For compute capacity in the Dedicated license, administrators will receive an alert if utilization exceeds 75%. If the percent compute utilization exceeds 90%, users may begin to receive error messages when starting new feeds or analytics if there is insufficient capacity to run that feed or analytic.

Subscription utilization over time is displayed in the time series chart. This can be used to understand the rate of increase for the number of running items (compute) or storage consumption. The time series information can be displayed over the last hour, the last day, the last week, or the last month. Use Auto-Refresh if you are actively starting and stopping feeds and analytics to see the immediate impacts.

Running items (compute) utilization

The Feeds and Analytics page in the ArcGIS Velocity application provides information on the feeds and analytics that are actively running, including ownership, start time, and item type information. Each item's title links to the details page for that item in the Velocity application. Organization administrators can stop any running items if necessary.

For the Dedicated license, this is the Compute Utilization page. Compute usage is broken down between feeds, real-time analytics, and big data analytics. The percent compute utilized is reported for each item in the item list. By default, the items are sorted in descending order by compute usage.

The Feeds and Analytics page (or Compute Utilization page) are only visible to organization administrators.

Storage utilization

The Storage Utilization page in the ArcGIS Velocity application provides information on the storage consumed by different feature layers hosted by ArcGIS Velocity. This includes ownership, creation date, and record count information, as well as the percent storage each layer is consuming out of the total storage included in the subscription. By default, the layers are sorted in descending order by storage used. Each item's title links to the ArcGIS Online item details page for that layer.

Email notification settings can be modified here to change the frequency storage notifications emails are sent to organization administrative contacts. For the Dedicated license, this page also provides additional information on how much of the available storage is being used by the system components in Velocity.

The Storage Utilization page is only visible to organization administrators.

Summary

Organization administrators can use the information provided on the Feeds and Analytics page (or Compute Utilization page for a Dedicated license) and Storage Utilization page to review the running feeds and analytics as well as the relative size of different feature layers consuming available storage. Additionally, this information can be used to coordinate with users on the necessity or status of various items if subscription capacity needs to be freed up to accommodate other use cases across the organization.
