UiPath Orchestrator Guide

Monitoring Robots

General View

Displays information about all the existing Robots on an aggregate basis, and allows you to check the overall health of the Robots in your system. On this page, you can isolate data per environment or Robot type so that you can quickly act in the event of an error. You can also control the granularity of the displayed data, to have a more accurate overview of how your Robots are performing in time.

Filters

  • Environment - allows you to filter data per environment.
  • Interval - allows you to control the granularity of data, and display either the last hour or last day (last 24 hours) of your Robots' activity.
  • Robot Type - allows you to filter data per Robot type. The following options are available: Attended, Unattended, Development, NonProduction.

Note

Filtering impacts all widgets, unless specified otherwise in the dedicated section.

Robots Overview

Allows you to check the status of your Robots in detail so that you can assess if there are any problems that could impact the entire system.

Each color block represents a specific Robot from your instance. Hovering over a block displays the name of the corresponding Robot.

The total number of Robots is displayed in parentheses after the widget name. As the status changes, the chart gets updated and the color changes accordingly.

The various scenarios are represented with colored blocks and tooltips as follows:

Clicking a block displays the corresponding detailed view page. Click the arrow at the top-left of the page to return to general view.

Filtering by Interval does not impact this widget.

Robots Status

Allows you to see precise figures regarding the status of your Robots so you can assess if there are any problems that could impact the entire system. You can see, for example, if there are more disconnected Robots than usually.

Robot statuses are represented with colors and tooltips as follows:

Color
Tooltip

Green

Blue

The number in the middle of the chart represents the total number of Robots. The number on each slice represents the number of Robots in that specific state. As a Robot's status changes, the chart gets updated accordingly. You can filter out statuses by clicking the labels below the chart.

Filtering by Interval does not impact this widget.

Runtimes Overview

Allows you to see runtime allocation and usage for Unattended and NonProduction Robots. You are able to assess how many unattended jobs are running simultaneously, and whether your runtimes are used (allocated to machines) or not.

Runtime states are represented with colors as follows:

Color
Tooltip

Green

Blue

Grey

The number in the middle of the chart represents the total number of Unattended and NonProduction runtimes. The number on each slice represents the number of runtimes in that specific state. As you change the runtime allocation on the License page, the chart gets updated accordingly. You can filter out states by clicking the labels below the chart.

Filtering by Interval does not impact this widget.

Runtimes per Machine

Allows you to see the runtime allocation per machine and assess whether a machine needs more runtimes or not. Similarly, you can see if you have allocated too many runtimes to a machine.

Data in the table gets updated accordingly as you allocate more runtimes or start a job on a licensed Robot.

Machine

The name of the machine. Click the arrows at the right of the column name:

  • once to sort data by name, in ascending alphabetical order;
  • twice to sort data by name, in descending alphabetical order.

Total

  • once to sort data by the total number of runtimes, in ascending order;
  • twice to sort data by the total number of runtimes, in descending order.

Executing

The number of runtimes currently used by the corresponding machine. The entries in this widget are sorted by default in descending order by the number of executing runtimes, if any. Click the arrow at the left of the column name to sort data in ascending order.

Search

Individual View

Displays information concerning one Robot, as selected by the user from the general view, specifically on the Robots Overview widget. Each widget in this view contains the exact same information as on the Robots page. Changing the properties there automatically causes the information here to update accordingly.

Filters

Interval - allows you to control the granularity of the data, and display either the last hour or last day (last 24 hours) of the selected Robot's activity.

Header Details

The name of the Robot is displayed at the top left of the page. If there is a pending job which has been specifically allocated to that Robot, its name is displayed alongside the Next Job label.

Right below the Robot's name and Interval filter, you can find the following information concerning the selected Robot:

  • Type - the Robot type;
  • Username - the username used to connect the Robot to Orchestrator;
  • Machine - the name of the machine on which UiPath Robot is installed;
  • Running Process - the name of the process that is being executed.

Current Job: [Job Name]

Displays the name of the executed process, if any, and details pertaining to the associated job. Specifically, the time at which the job execution began and its approximate time of completion. If there is no ongoing job, the widget is not populated. The estimated time of completion is calculated based on previous executions of that job, if any. If the job is at its first execution, a dash is displayed instead. When the execution has ended, the widget returns to the original, unpopulated state.

Error Feed

Allows you to see a list of the errors encountered on the selected Robot. The errors are displayed in reverse chronological order as they occur, meaning a new error is always displayed at the top of the feed. The number of errors displayed in parentheses after the widget name is expressed according to your position within the feed and to the total number of errors. Let's say there are 453 errors in your feed. The following behavior is encountered:

Position Within the Feed
Displayed Value

Between 0 and 99

99+

Between 100 and 199

199+

Between 200 and 299

299+

Between 300 and 399

399+

Further than 400

The total number of errors in the feed, in this particular example 453.

After reaching the end of the feed, the total number of errors is displayed regardless of your position.

You can dismiss an error after having acknowledged it, however, please take into account that multiple users might check the feed simultaneously, so we recommend carefully using the Dismiss button. A dismissed error is still taken into account in the error counter. After an error was dismissed, the name of the user who performed the action is displayed adjacently in a tooltip. Note that you need Edit permissions on Monitoring to dismiss errors. Details here.
