Overwatch

Installing Overwatch

 

Preliminary Considerations:

1. Usage Archiver is a Windows only service

1. You cannot install multiple instances of the Usage Archiver on a single computer meaning you can only have one Archiver per computer per configuration.

  

Installation

 

Note: There are two parts to installing Overwatch; the Usage Archiver and then the Overwatch installer.

  

Usage Archiver:

 

1. Open Application Studio navigate to Application Properties -> Server Tab-> check off the “Track Usage” checkbox

 

2. Go To: Usage Archiver and save and extract the entire contents of the zip file to any location or folder. (Note that these files must not be removed from this location or the Usage Archiver will break).

 

3. Open up the command prompt and run the Usage Archive executable by typing in the following: C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\installutil UsageArchiverService.exe (Note if this path does not exist you will have to do a search for installutil.exe as it exists somewhere on the computer). You should receive a successful install message.

 

4. Open up the UsageArchiverService.exe.config and change the below applicable lines to reflect the applicable environment. (Note this calls for the encrypted password so you will have to obtain this from the web.config file on the web server). Save.

Overwatch:

 

1. Go To: Overwatch Installer

 

2. Run Overwatch.msi

 

3. Step through the wizard. The install should prompt you with a successful install message.

 

4. In IIS a new virtual directory should have installed (defaults to “Overwatch”) Click on this virtual directory and you should see the hosted files.

 

5. Open up the Web.config file and change the below lines to reflect the applicable environment. (Note this calls for the encrypted password so you will have to obtain this from the web.config file on the web server). Most notable is “ApplicationCookie” If you do not change this, and you have more than one Overwatch open in a browser, they will share settings. Save.

6. Navigate to: http://IP_or_domain/VirtualDirectory/SystemOverview.aspx 

 

Additional Information:

 

Overwatch has a very specific definition for “Active Users”. They are defined as:

Users that have made at LEAST 10 requests.

Users must have made these within at most 90 days of your start range.

 

Examples:

If I’m looking at the current month, only users that have made 10 requests will be considered active.

If today was Sept 1st and I am looking at YTD, only users who have made at least 10 requests between June 1st and Sept 1st are considered Active.
