Read the Operations Log

Applies To: Windows HPC Server 2008

The operations log allows you to track recent changes to your cluster and monitor the progress of ongoing operations. You can view the operations log for the entire cluster, filter it to view only specific nodes, or pivot to operations to correlate log entries with specific nodes or diagnostic tests.

For information about using HPC Cluster Manager, see Overview of HPC Cluster Manager.

To view the operations log

  1. In Node Management, in the Navigation Pane, click Operations. The view pane displays a list of all cluster operations from the past seven days.

  2. Use the filter fields to filter operations by Definition, Node, and Last Updated. You can also click the filters in the Navigation Pane, under Operations, to view operations by state.

  3. Click an operation. A detailed log of the selected operation appears in the Details Pane. If the operation is in progress, the log is updated in real time.

Additional considerations

  • You can pivot to the operations log from the node view or from the diagnostic view. This takes you to an operations view that is filtered by the nodes or diagnostics that you selected.

  • To open HPC Cluster Manager, click Start, point to All Programs, click Microsoft HPC Pack, and then click HPC Cluster Manager. If the User Account Control dialog box appears, confirm that the action it displays is what you want, and then click Continue.
