COB Monitor
Three enquiries are available that assist the monitoring the progress of Close of Business and the records
processed with the time taken. They can be accessed via the Temenos Enterprise Console.

COB.PROGRESS – A listing of active companies and an indication (progress bar) of their time to completion.

JOB.PROGRESS – This enquiry list all active and completed jobs by descending start times (i.e. current on top). It
shows the start time, end time, elapsed time, contracts processed, total contracts to process, throughput
(contracts/minute) and individual server rate. The latter is the number of contracts processed in one minute by a
server process – this will be compared historically to see if the job is slowing down as time passes.

JOB.HISTORY – Drilling down from the JOB.PROGRESS, the user can see a graph of the elapsed time of the last ten
runs of the job and the individual server rate. If the latter figure rises over time; it indicates a problem, which
could be badly sized files.
