Application Health Checking and Monitoring

First and foremost, we log in to the admin studio of the Pega application to check the health of the Application (by analyzing the nodes, queues, jobs, etc.

For checking the health status of the application we are using PDC (Predictive Diagnostic Cloud) .

PDC monitors our applications at run-time and gathers performance, quality, and diagnostic data for the Pega Platform and application components.

PDC gathers, aggregates, and analyzes alerts, system health pulses, and guardrail violations generated from Pega applications to produce trending dashboards .

Addressing Production Issues

An email or a text message from Microsoft Teams or any other official media is supposed to be received from the business users facing the issue .

In response to the email, we would generate a ticket and address the issue stating the team is working on it. 

We would check whether the issue is a platform issue or an Application related issue .

Based on the issue we will engage the respective team or engage with business users to find the core of the issue.

Sometimes we would also look for the solution in Pega Support for any similar existing if any or sometimes we would solve it instantly based on the severity. 

Based on the severity of the issue we will form a bridge call and involve the teams .

In some cases, we may need to raise a Service Request(S.R) with the support team of Pega Systems.

Production Deployment in Pega Support

All the production deployments are done by the Pega Support team.

The Application Dev team will send an email stating for Production deployment with attaching a product file based on the schedule.

Based on the schedule we will create the CR and get the approvals from the business before deploying the code.

After the CR is approved we will deploy the code at the scheduled time.

We will take the DB backup, and deploy the code as per the time mentioned .

Once deployment is completed we will send a mail requesting validation to the Application dev team.

Installation of Hotfixes:

Hotfixes are  zip packages of files that address issues in the Pega 7 Platform and participating Pega-supplied applications. Hotfix Manager includes both a user-interface tool and a command-line tool.

In Pega Application, (configure—system—-release—hotfix manager), first we check for the status of the installed hotfixes i.e. committed, uncommitted, and critical missing hotfixes.

In the Pega  Application, we will check the hotfix manager and scan for the critical missing hotfixes.

If any critical hotfixes missing, we will raise the SR to get the hotfixes.

Once we get the hotfixes, we start installing from lower environments .

We will monitor it for one week and commit to it.

Once completed in lower environments we will install it in the production environment.

Before installing in a production environment we will ask for approval from the application owner.

Once approved, we create a CR and install the hotfixes in production.

And monitor for one week, then we will commit the hotfixes.
