ERP 2.50:User Manual/HeartBeat
Enable/disable and configure the heartbeat which sends non-commercial system information to Openbravo.
What is the Openbravo Heartbeat?
The Openbravo Heartbeat is a process which sends Openbravo periodic updates regarding your technical system specifications (e.g. Operating System, Database, and ERP Version).
When the System Administrator first logs into Openbravo ERP after installing the application, a popup window is displayed explaining what the Heartbeat is and giving the user the option of enabling or disabling it, or leaving the decision to enable/disable until a later date. If Enable is chosen, the user is redirected to the Heartbeat Configuration window to configure the Heartbeat. If disabled, the Heartbeat is disabled. If the decision to enable/disable is postponed, the System Administrator will be prompted with the popup again after 3 days.
During heartbeat processing, the data that is collected is as follows:
- System identifier
- Encrypted Database identifier
- Encrypted Mac Address
- Heartbeat date
- Activity and complexity rate (only up to MP22)
- Number of registered users
- Operating System and version
- Database and version
- Application server and version
- Web server and version
- Java version
- Apache-Ant version
- Openbravo version
- Openbravo install mode
- System external IP address
- Date of first login, date of last login, total number of logins
- Maximum number of concurrent users
- Average number of concurrent users
- Rejected logins due to concurrent users limit number
- Installed modules
- Number of http-requests done per installed module (optionally, enabled by default)
Additionally the Heartbeat server might return several queries to be executed locally to gather more information about the instance. The information gathered through these queries is restricted to the way the Openbravo software is being used in the instance and will never include any business information such as Business Partners or Products. Consult the following link for the historic list of Custom Queries . You can monitor the history of all the information gathered from your instance through the HeartBeat in the HeartBeat Log Tab within the Heartbeat Configuration Window.
The heartbeat data is stored in a file controlled by Openbravo S.L.U.
