  • 1. (ATS3-APP04) AVS and SN 6.6 Update 3 Deep Dive Mike Wilson Advisory Product Manager mike.wilson@accelrys.com
  • 2. The information on the roadmap and future software development efforts areintended to outline general product direction and should not be relied on in makinga purchasing decision.
  • 3. Agenda• Review Recent Symyx Notebook Releases• Notebook Table Conditional Formatting• Vault Index Monitoring
  • 4. Recent Releases• Symyx Notebook 6.6 SP2 (September 2011) – Cross experiment analysis – Experiment editor improvements – Requires AVS 6.6 SP2• Symyx Notebook 6.6 Update 3 (February 2012) – New synthetic chemistry features – Table section improvements – Works with SN 6.6 SP1 or SP2 – Requires AVS 6.6 SP3
  • 5. Notebook 6.6 SP2 Client Application Release • Cross-experiment Analysis and Reporting • Hosted within NBE • Reports developed/extensible using PLP Cross Experiment Reporting Collection Components • Usability Enhancements Analysis • Experiment viewing in tabbed layout • Work Request node in NBE Browse pane • Recipe execution usability • Ability to set a Form section as the preview Usability section Enhancements • Quick File tool panel for quick access to desktop folder locations Notebook 6.6 SP2 Sept 2011
  • 6. Tile Experiments for Viewing
  • 7. Access your Analysis and Reports New Analysis Pane in Notebook Explorer Enter Parameters for Report Graphical and Tabular Results Browse for Desired Report
  • 8. Immediate Access to your Data Files Assign Quick File to Local and Network Folders Drag into File Sections
  • 9. Notebook 6.6 Section Update 3 Section Update Release • Synthetic Chemistry • Multiple material lots Synthetic • Material Import enhancements Chemistry • SDK access to SN6 libraries • Customer Enhancements • Table section row re-ordering • mol/mol units Customer • Table section usability o Conditional row/column highlighting Enhancements o Ability to pin columns for scrolling o Column header wrapping/grouping Notebook 6.6 Update 3 Feb 24, 2012
  • 10. New Capability Highlights• Process Chemistry  Functionality – Multi-lot materials  Usability – Add the mol/mol (LR) unit for use by synthetic chemists – Import/Search of Materials – SN6 Structure /Reaction searching for Process Notebook parallel experiments – Improve usability of Material Import and Auto-lookup dialogs – Remove duplicates from ChemSeek search results• Table Section Behaviors – Table section conditional formatting – Row reordering in Table-based sections – Improved table section column resizing, wrapping and header behaviors – Improved table section copy/paste behaviors; Easier keyboard navigation
  • 11. Table Formatting for Usability Template section property and ‘rules editor’ enable conditional formatting on a ‘per Table section’ basis – rules saved with section template Modify font, font color, background color to columns, rows, or cells Set precedence of conflicting rules by reordering
  • 12. Index Status Tracking for AVS 6.6
  • 13. Design Goals• Provide visibility into the indexing state of a deployment• Support automation of system management• Address deficiencies in existing Vault Indexing Utility• Enable system management reporting of indexing state
  • 14. Index Status Tracking Implementation• A new status tracking table in each repository schema• Updated message handlers and processing service that reports results to the tracking table• New re-queuing utility that integrates with status tracking data• Extensive documentation including best practice guidance
  • 15. Message Handler Status Table• New table in each repository schema• Tracking records are added as VOs are saved – No records will exist in this table upon install/upgrade Column Name Data Type Description VaultId VarChar(255) The VaultId of the item being tracked HandlerName VarChar(255) The message handler being tracked Action VarChar(255) Internal field used by message handlers Status VarChar(255) Queued, Processed, Failed, or Requeued LastModifiedTime TimeStamp The last time the VO was modified LastProcessedVersion Integer The version number of the last version that was successfully processed LastProcessedTime TimeStamp The last time the VO was successfully processed
  • 16. Message Handler StatesState MeaningQueued VO is currently queued for processing by the message handlerProcessed VO was processed by the message handlerFailed VO could not be processed by the message handlerRequeued VO is currently queued for processingIgnore VO should be ignored for status trackingUnknown VO has not been processed by the index status tracking featureNotes:• Unknown is an implied state used to describe VOs without records in the status tracking table• “Processed” does not imply the presence of data in an index – The object might not implement that type of indexing – The object might not contain any data of that type
  • 17. Message HandlersMessage Handler DescriptionFullTextIndexer Adds any text provided by VO to the full text indexVaultObjectIndexMessageHandler Indexes any Property Set Definition (PSD) data (including structures and reactions)PropertyIndexMessageHandler Indexes VaultObject core properties to support Standard Search and internal queryingWorkflowActivator Enrolls items in workflows based on the active workflow associationsWorkflowTransitionMessageHandler Indexes workflow stage value after transitionsIndexerObjectHandler Indexes form data for Advanced Search (superseded by PSD indexing in Vault 6.4)• Systems may have additional message handlers – Work Request 2.0 – Custom handlers developed by Accelrys Services• Message handlers must be based on AVS 6.6 SP1 (or later) to participate in status tracking
  • 18. Re-Queuing Utility• Submits VaultObjects for processing based on their message handling status – Replaces VaultIndexingUtility.exe – Utilizes the data in MessageHandlerStatus – Designed for automation• Can be used to process items: – That failed to process previously – When message queues are purged – For a specific message handler – To establish their message handling state – When a new indexing feature is added (ex: Office 2010 documents after the upgrade to Oracle 11g)
  • 19. RequeueVaultObjects.exe Arguments Examples: • Re-queue failed VOs in the Site repository RequeueVaultObjects -repository Site • Re-queue queued VOs for full text indexing in the R&D repository RequeueVaultObjects -repository "R&D" –status Queued –queues FullTextIndexer • Re-queue untracked VOs Process Chemistry repository RequeueVaultObjects -repository "Process Chemistry" –status Unknown Argument Description Required Default -Repository The repository that will be acted upon Yes N/A -MessageLimit Maximum # of messages that will be created No 100000 -Status The message handling state to be queued No Failed -Queues List of queues to populate No All
  • 20. RequeueVaultObjects.exe Arguments Argument Description Required Default -Repository The repository that will be acted upon Yes N/A -MessageLimit Maximum # of messages that will be created No 100000 -Status The message handling state to be queued No Failed -Queues List of queues to populate No AllExamples:• Re-queue failed VOs in the Site repository RequeueVaultObjects -repository Site• Re-queue queued VOs for full text indexing in the R&D repository RequeueVaultObjects -repository "R&D" –status Queued –queues FullTextIndexer• Re-queue untracked VOs Process Chemistry repository RequeueVaultObjects -repository "Process Chemistry" –status Unknown
  • 21. Example Queries• Find items queued for more than a day• Show the indexing status• Items that failed to index in the past day
  • 22. Automation Support• Status tracking + re-queuing enables automation of message handling management activities – Task Scheduler jobs • Re-process all failed items at midnight each day • Process all unknown items on Saturday each week – Large jobs can be split across servers • Ex: queue 25,000 on server 1 then queue the next 25,000 on server 2
  • 23. Summary• Symyx Notebook is rapidly evolving to better serve our customers. Features such as tabbed editors and conditional table formatting make the product more usable and index status tracking makes the server easier to manage.• Other Notebook sessions that may interest you – (ATS3-APP08) Building Symyx Notebook dashboards with Pipeline Pilot – (ATS3-APP09) Integrating Symyx Notebook into an Enterprise Management System – (ATS3-APP13) Tips and Tricks for Monitoring and Managing Symyx Notebook Server Performance – (ATS3-APP14) Troubleshooting Symyx Notebook client performance• Resources – Notebook IT/Admin forum on the Accelrys Community • Email support@accelrys.com to join – Troubleshooting guidance: support@accelrys.com
