Monitoring Background Tasks

M-Files Server performs various tasks for your document vault in the background. You may monitor the progress of these operations in M-Files Admin.

Background tasks are complex and time-consuming processes that are processed in the background so that they can be executed in parallel with other M-Files Server tasks without interfering or stalling other ongoing processes.

Complete the following steps to monitor background tasks in your document vault:

  1. Open M-Files Admin.
  2. In the left-side tree view, expand a connection to M-Files Server.
  3. In the left-side tree view, expand Document Vaults, and then expand a vault.
  4. In the left-side tree view, select Background Tasks.
    Result:The Background Tasks view is opened.
Tip: If the list contains a large number of items, you might want to filter it. To filter the view, open the View menu and click Filter. Enter a desired text to filter the column contents.
Background tasks currently in progress are listed in the Background Tasks view. You may click Refresh on the task area to refresh the view.
