The Server System Administration window can be opened with the menu function Administration | Server System Administration. This function is only available for users that have the role System Admin (e.g., the default administration user Administrator).

The window shows a pie chart for the available and used disk size, and below a table with the currently active login sessions of the SeqSphere+ server. A button panel on the right offers several functions for server administration:

  • Button16-Refresh.gif Refresh Server Status: Force to retrieve the current server status and update the disk size chart, the session list, and the license state. The status is also refreshed automatically after a period of time.
  • Button16-Information.gifServer System Info: Show an overview of the server internals.
  • Button16-Key.png Activate License: Activate the SeqSphere+ software license or import a prepared license file.

  • Button16-Open.gif Server Import Update: Install a locally downloaded update file to the server.
