    Getting Started OverviewThis chapter includes the following topics:

    • Introducing Informatica Administrator, 1

    • Informatica Domain Overview, 1

    Introducing Informatica AdministratorInformatica Administrator (Administrator tool) is the administration tool you use to administer the Informatica domain and Informatica security.

    You can use the Administrator tool to perform the following tasks:

    • Domain administrative tasks. Manage logs, domain objects, and domain reports. Domain objects include application services, nodes, grids, folders, database connections, applications, and licenses.

    • Security administrative tasks. Manage users, groups, roles, privileges, and permissions.

    Informatica Domain OverviewInformatica has a service-oriented architecture that provides the ability to scale services and to share resources across multiple machines. The Informatica domain is the primary unit for management and administration of services.

    You can log in to Informatica Administrator (the Administrator tool) after you install Informatica. You use the Administrator tool to manage the domain and configure the required application services before you can access the remaining application clients.

    Informatica contains the following components:

    • Application clients. A group of clients that you use to access underlying Informatica functionality. Application clients make requests to the Service Manager or application services.

    • Application services. A group of services that represent server-based functionality. An Informatica domain can contain a subset of application services. You configure the application services that are required by the application clients that you use.

    • Repositories. A group of relational databases that store metadata about objects and processes required to handle user requests from application clients.

    • Service Manager. A service that is built in to the domain to manage all domain operations. The Service Manager runs the application services and performs domain functions including authentication, authorization, and logging.

    The following table lists the application clients, not including the Administrator tool, and the application services and the repositories that the client requires:

    • Task 3. Create a Data Integration Service, 16

    • Task 4. Create an Analyst Service, 18

    • Creating Application Services Summary, 21

    Creating Application Services OverviewUse the Administrator tool to create application services.

    Application services provide the functionality for the Informatica domain operations. Create the following application services for use with the Analyst tool:

    • Model Repository Service. The Model Repository Service manages the Model repository. The Analyst tool, Data Integration Service, and Administrator tool store metadata in the Model repository.

    • Data Integration Service. The Data Integration Service is an application service that performs data integration tasks for the Analyst tool and other external clients.

    • Analyst Service. The Analyst Service is an application service that runs the Analyst tool. The Analyst Service manages the connections between service components and the users who access the Analyst tool.

    You associate a Data Integration Service with a profiling warehouse and a data object cache database. When you create these application services, you select connections to these databases. A database connection is a domain object that contains connectivity information for a relational database. You create the connection objects before you create the Data Integration Service and Analyst Service.

    StoryAn administrator at HypoStores needs to create application services. An analyst needs a Model Repository Service, Data Integration Service, and Analyst Service to use the Analyst tool.

    Lesson 4. Monitoring Jobs and Applications

    This chapter includes the following topics:

    • Monitoring Jobs and Applications Overview, 25

    • Task 1. View Profile and Scorecard Jobs, 26

    • Task 2. View Connections to an SQL Data Service, 26

    • Task 3. View Requests for an SQL Data Service, 27

    • Task 4. View Requests for a Web Service, 27

    • Task 5. Monitor a Workflow Instance Run, 28

    • Task 6. View Event Logs for the Data Integration Service, 28

    • Monitoring Jobs and Applications Summary, 29

    Monitoring Jobs and Applications OverviewUse the Monitoring tab to monitor jobs and applications that run on a Data Integration Service.

    The Data Integration Service runs jobs and applications. A job is a profile, scorecard, mapping, SQL data service, preview or reference table process that is running or has previously run. An application is an object that contains one or more SQL data services, mappings, data objects, or workflows.

    The Navigator displays the list of jobs that run on the Data Integration Service. When you view jobs for a Data Integration Service, the content panel displays information such as job ID, state, and elapsed time.

    The Navigator also displays the list of applications that are deployed to the Data Integration Service. The content panel displays the SQL data services, deployed mapping jobs, logical data objects, web services, and workflows included in each application.

    You can monitor requests for SQL data service connections. An SQL data service connection is a connection from an external client. When you view connections to an SQL data service, the contents panel displays information such as the connection ID, state, and elapsed time. Each SQL data service connection can have multiple requests. When you view a request for an SQL data service, the contents panel displays information such as the request ID, state, and elapsed time.

    You can also view the event logs of the Data Integration Service on which the jobs and applications run to monitor how busy the service is. The event logs show the service activity, any errors encountered, and the severity of the errors.
