Siebel Task Status Test

A Siebel Server task is an instantiation of a Siebel Server component. To run a Siebel Server task,  you must run a component job, which requests one or more Siebel Server tasks to run.

A Siebel Server task might be in one of four fundamental states: Running, Paused, Stopping, or Completed.

This test reports the currently running and completed tasks on every object manager on a Siebel server. In addition, this test reports the tasks on which errors were detected.

Target of the test : A Siebel Application Server

Agent deploying the test : An internal agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for each object manager on the Siebel server that is to be monitored.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test period

How often should the test be executed


The host for which the test is to be configured.


The port number at which the specified host listens to. By default, this is 1199.

JMX Remote Port

Specify the port at which the JMX listens for requests from the remote hosts. Ensure that you specify the same port that you have mentioned in the agentconfig.connectors.xml file in the <SIEBEL_INSTALL_DIR>\siebsrvr\mgmtagent\pref\system folder used in the target application.


The JNDIName is a lookup name for connecting to the JMX connector. By default, this is jmxrmi. If you have resgistered the JMX connector in the RMI registery using a different lookup name, then you can change this default value to reflect the same.

Siebel Agent User and Siebel Agent Password

In order to monitor the Siebel Application server, a valid user possessing admin privileges is required. Specify the login credentials of such a user in the Siebel Agent User and Siebel Agent Password text boxes.

Confirm Password

Confirm the Siebel Agent Password by retyping it here.

Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Number of running tasks

Indicates the number of tasks that are currently running on this Object Manager.


The detailed diagnosis of this measure, if enabled, provides the details of tasks that are currently running. Such details include the task ID, the object manager that is running the task, the mode in which the task is running, and the date/time at which the task began running. Using this information, you can quickly identify long-running tasks, and investigate the reason behind the same.

Number of completed tasks

Indicates the number of tasks that ran to completion and exited normally on this Object Manager.



Number of error tasks

Indicates the number of tasks on which error was detected on this Object Manager.


A low value is desired for this measure. A gradual/steady increase in the value of this measure is a cause of concern which may affect the overall performance of the Siebel Application server.
