TSIM: The Scheduled Iflows Monitor
TSMI (The Scheduled Iflows Monitor)
Note: This article is related to my previous post: CPI: Scheduling monitoring
The objective of this iFlow is to be able to present information related to the next scheduled executions of your iFlows. It is executed by a single http endpoint. The default url parameters are:
- daysAhead: 7 (Default) days of analysis.
- hourThreshold: Grouping for iflows with more than 6 (Default) executions per hour.
- mode: Execution mode (“artefacts” = raw information, “ts” = calculated cron expressions, anything else / default = render as web page)
Let’s start with the sad part:
limitations and problems
- I couldn’t find a better name for the Iflow. Fortunately this is simple to change. 🙂
- The web interface is heavy and can get slow due to the amount of records. It is based on TimelineJS, which was intended for journalism or blog articles.
- TimelineJS won’t escalate well if you have several jobs or if they run to often. I’m still looking for ways to reduce the amount of displayed data.
- Due to the previous point, I grouped those Iflows with many entries (several times per hour). This is parametrizable. (And I’m sure this has to have some bugs)
- Option 1: download the iflow from here -> GitHub
- Option 2 (manual): implements the following script and its Maven dependencies.
Simply open the configurable endpoint in your web browser:
- Zoom to Timeline
- Orange color: grouped scheduled executions.
- Purple color: individual scheduled executions.
- You can read the description of the cron entry… human readable!
- Link to the monitor of a specific iFlow
- It has a favicon and a logo 🙂

I hope this little iflow will help you to monitor using directly or as a reference to create a new one. If you have suggestions, leave them in the comments. Also, code updates and problem bug reports are welcome.
