Introduction to the Admin Service
The Admin Service has two main functions: it installs new Enterprise Vault license keys, and it provides a general monitoring service that runs automatically whenever any other Enterprise Vault task or service starts. It is installed automatically when you install any of the other Enterprise Vault services.
The Enterprise Vault Admin Service monitors the following:
Free space on local hard disks. By default, the Admin Service monitors all local hard disks, but you can restrict it to specific disks if required.
The amount of available virtual memory.
The number of items on system message queues.
The Admin Service has a warning threshold and a critical threshold for each type of check. When the warning threshold is reached, the Admin Service writes a warning message to the Windows Application Log. When the critical threshold is reached, the Admin Service shuts down all Enterprise Vault tasks and services running on the same computer.
By shutting down Enterprise Vault before problems arise, this behavior helps to maintain the stability of Enterprise Vault.
The online help for the Enterprise Vault Administration Console describes how to control the behavior of the Admin Service.
