Jobs are started by various NetWitness Suite modules; for example, the Live module can download CMS resources, the Administration module can upload a feed to a service, and the Investigation module can analyze and reconstruct packets in packet capture files.
In the Administration System view, users in the ADMIN group can manage all NetWitness Suite jobs in the Jobs panel. Other non-administrative users can view their own jobs in the Profile view.
In addition, while working in NetWitness Suite, you can open a quick view of your jobs from the NetWitness Suite toolbar. When a job status has changed, the Jobs icon () is flagged with the number of running jobs. Once all jobs are completed, that number disappears.
In the Jobs panel, you can:
- View and sort the jobs
- Pause or resume a job
- Cancel a job
- Delete a job
- Download a job
The structure of the jobs panel is the same in all views.
What do you want to do?
To access the Jobs panel, do one of the following:
Go to ADMIN > System, and in the options panel, select Jobs.
Go to Profile, and in the options panel, select Jobs.
The Jobs panel organizes information about jobs into a grid. The columns present a job progress bar, the job name, an indication that the job is recurring or not recurring, the NetWitness Suite module that is controlling the job, the owner of the job, the status, any associated message, and a download button to allow downloading of a job's packet capture files or payload files.
The Jobs tray lists all jobs that you own, recurring and non-recurring, using a subset of the columns available in the Jobs panel. Otherwise the Jobs tray and the Profile View > Jobs panel are the same. In the Administration System view, the Jobs panel lists information about all NetWitness Suite jobs for all users.
The following table describes the options in the Jobs panel.
