System Information

The Process List panel provides an overview of the processes running on the machine and their resource use. If required, the CPU usage can also be measured, by checking the Measure CPU Usage check box in the upper right corner. The Process list lists the following information:

  • The process identifier (PID) and name of the process executable.

  • The number of handles and threads used by the process.

  • The current and peak Working Set (WS) size in bytes.

  • The number of input/output (IO) operations performed in read (RO), write (WO) and other (OO) operations.

  • The number of input/output (IO) bytes read (RT), written (WT) and other (OT) transfers.

  • The number of page faults.

  • The current and peak pagefile usage.

  • Estimated CPU usage (if enabled).

The system information panel lists details regarding the current system’s hardware and software configuration. This includes:

  • Other installed Graphic Hub applications, such as the Graphic Hub Manager and Graphic Hub Deploy Agent.

  • The amount and usage of system RAM.

  • The installed network adapters and their IP addresses and connectivity status.

  • Information about the installed hard disk drives.

  • Information about the system CPU(s).

  • Further information about the workstation configuration, the configured network, operating system and installed software.

Export File Parameters

Reports are essential troubleshooting tools when there is any kind of system error. The generation of a report should be one of the first actions performed when a system problem occurs, as it can provide valuable information and help to find a solution. Reports can also be generated automatically in case of an unexpected server shutdown.

IMPORTANT! In the reports folder, there is a file called SystemInfo.txt. Before this file is sent anywhere, make sure to read it and remove any information that could compromise company security policies and interests.

Tip: On a cluster setup, exporting the report from the Main server automatically generates and downloads two reports, one for each of Main and Replication servers. Both reports are required for troubleshooting.

The Export file panel shows all report files created for export:


  • Click the download icon (1) to download the selected export file.

  • Click the trashcan icon (2) to delete the selected export file.

To Automatically Create Reports of Unexpected Shutdown
