A modern search system is based on several constituent parts that interact with one another. Maintaining, updating and altering the behavior of one part of the system has historically been an arduous and highly technical task. A configuration change in one part of the system is likely unconnected to the operational management of other parts. This often leads to unpredictability in the system, in addition to having to handle a plethora of configuration files and tools.
A core module of Ravn Manage is the Monitoring and System Alerting functionality. These modules provide a simple interface to get an overview of the operational parts of a system and the possibility to investigate more detailed information and statistics of each module. Alerts can be set up to notify a systems administrator of any change in the status of each component.
