Engine health

Each engine has a separate record in the Engine health overview with data about the current health status. Engine health data is updated every 15 seconds by default. To configure the update interval, edit EngineHealthCheckPool.Interval in C:\Program Files\Qlik\Sense\Repository\Repository.exe.config on your Qlik Sense machine.

The Engine health overview lists health data for all available engines. The following table presents the available fields and buttons. By default, only some of the fields are displayed. You can use the column selector (Table) to add fields.

Tip noteYou can adjust the column width by dragging the header border.
