Process Monitor web app and API

The idea of process monitoring is to give a high level view on processes running in the system, without needing to worry about tracking multiple workflows (in the case of a batching workflow like Incremental Ingest or an internally triggering one like Web Ingest) or having to find information about non-workflow processes (e.g. secondary staging, automatic preservation actions from settings).

Creating complex assets within an OPEX

Up to now users needed to create PAX zips. Users would need to create a zipped folder structure, with optional XIP for fixity information. In Preservica 6.6.1 we are adding the ability to use PAX folders without having to zip them up, and also without having to use XIP metadata when adding fixity information.

Using OPEX and PAX for Ingesting Content

Preservica has developed the concept of an OPEX (Open Preservation Exchange) package, a collection of files and folders with optional metadata, as a way to organise content into an easy to understand format for transfer into or out of a digital preservation system. Although we have created it, we hope suppliers of digital content to be preserved, and other digital preservation systems, will use it due to its simplicity.
