Managing Processes

With its management interface users may manage processes launched with pVACviz. The Management section of the application is comprised of two pages: a list page that shows all the currently managed processes; and a detail page that displays all of the details of an individual process.

Displaying All Managed Processes

When you click on the Manage link in the sidebar you will be presented with a table containing a paged list of all currently managed processes.

The process table displays each Process’ ID, Status, Sample Name, and Input File and provides a link to the detailed view of each process. A paging interface allows you to page through all running processes.

Each row provides an actions popup menu allowing you to stop, restart, export, archive, and delete processes. Clicking on the three dots at the left side of every row will display a menu of actions that can be applied to the process on that row. See below for a table detailing the actions available to you.

Displaying Process Details

Clicking on the Details link from the main Manage page in a process row displays the Process Detail page shown below. On this page you may view all the details of a process: its log, pVACseq command line arguments, and associated files. Any visualizable files will be shown with a Visualize link which, when clicked, will load the visualization for that results file.

All commands available in the process table are also available here in the header: stop, restart, export, archive and delete. See the table below for more details on these actions.

Process Actions

Both the process list table and process detail page provide actions for users to manage pVACseq processes. The process table makes these actions available in its action menu, displayed by clicking on the three dots on the left of every row. The process detail page provides buttons in its header to invoke process actions.




Stops a running process. Note that a process must be stopped before it can be restarted, exported, archived, or deleted.


Restarts a running process. Note that all progress will be lost; pVACseq does not yet restart processes at the point they were stopped.


Exports all a process’ config, log, intermediate, and final results files (if any) to the /export directory. The process will remain in the set of pVACapi managed processes.


Similar to Export, Archive moves all process config, log, intermediate, and final results files (if any) to the /archive directory. Unlike Export, Archive removes the process from pVACapi’s set of managed processes.


Deletes all process files and directories and removes it from pVACapi’s set of managed proceses. Be careful! This action is not undoable.
