The Webserver has a simple lay-out: it has a menu bar, a status bar and two panels.

The left-hand panel shows a list of all active instances, appearing as “<user name> <case name>: time of last action, <number of minutes>”.

The right-hand panel shows the log, telling what the server is doing. We have two log modes:

  1. detailed log, spawning a lot of information and data;
  2. sparse log, showing the minimum of important data;

The status bar at the bottom shows some useful properties of the current status:

  1. Number of users. When someone logs in she will remain logged in until logging out, or until a predefined amount of time has passed (cf. the setting “close session”).
  2. Number of requests the server has processed. A web page often consists of multiple parts, and may easily reach 10 requests just by logging in a user.
  3. Time at which the server was turned on.
  4. The running log can be toggled. This is shown as Verbose or Silence in the fourth field of the status bar.
  5. Memory usage in kilobytes.
  6. Two spheres: they represent the HTTP server, normal and SSL. An active server shows as green an inactive one as red.
  7. The full path name to the server executable.

The following chapters describe the various sub menus of the menu bar:
