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:
- detailed log, spawning a lot of information and data;
- sparse log, showing the minimum of important data;
The status bar at the bottom shows some useful properties of the current status:
- 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”).
- 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.
- Time at which the server was turned on.
- The running log can be toggled. This is shown as Verbose or Silence in the fourth field of the status bar.
- Memory usage in kilobytes.
- Two spheres: they represent the HTTP server, normal and SSL. An active server shows as green an inactive one as red.
- The full path name to the server executable.
The following chapters describe the various sub menus of the menu bar:
