Detailed information about this topic
When you open the monitoring page, the contents of the Status tab are displayed. Different information about the web application status is shown.
It is also possible to put the web application into maintenance mode. If maintenance mode is enabled, the web server does not accept any new connections for the web application. An advice message is displayed to users that try to login.
You can update the web application, assuming new assembly files are stored in the database. If there are no new connections pending, the update can start immediately. Otherwise, updating can be delayed until there are no more active connections. This ensures that no one looses their session or any data they have entered.
The update functions of the monitor page do not depend on the settings made in the configuration file.
