Getting real time HPC Reports on Cluster Manager UI


  • Dear all,

    We have integrated Windows HPC 2012 in one of our projects in last year, and it’s been working pretty good. Our team has been using Windows HPC reporting capabilities to perform some monitoring and job execution trends. However, we are facing one issue. All of our report display information which is currentTime-90 minutes old. This implies that somewhere HPC is pushing the data to reporting DB with 90 minutes delay. Is there any configuration setting which can allow us to change this 90 minutes threshold so that we can see near real-time information on the reports. Please help us out here.

  • Hi Puneet,

      Which reports are you referring to?

      The Monitoring Charts should be real time. While the reports are generated for "Day", "Week" and "Month". Thus I don't understand how you got the 90 minutes delay perception. And the reports are 

      And for our reporting service, it has EtlJobDelaySeconds which is set to 1 hour as default. You could change by providing parameter for the reporting service:

    the parameter you can give is: -j <EtlJobDelaySeconds>

  • Hi Quifang,

    The records in [HPCReporting].[dbo].[JobHistory] tables are not populated in the real time. They have more than an hour lag. I believe EtlJobDelaySeconds should fix that problem. Please let us know. Also, let us know how to apply this parameter. Are there any configuration settings we need to update?

  • Check below to add the parameter for your reporting service. Please try delay 5~10 minutes to see whether it works for you.

  • Hi Qiufang,

    I tried providing the parameter with the same method you have mentioned above. Nothing happens, I can still see a lag (around an hour) between my jobs submit time, and by the time they appear in JobHistory table. I wonder what might be wrong here.

  • Sorry for my careless, just checked the code, the parameter should be:


    instead of -j 300

  • Hi Qiufang,

    I tried providing -j:300 to the service and checked. Still nothing happens and I don't see JobHistory table updated in 5 minutes. I wonder what's wrong.
