The Media Manager is a server component that manages copying, deleting, transcoding and exporting operations for the system. Media Manager maintains a queue of requests (jobs). All media jobs can have priorities attached to them and job priorities are enforced dynamically. I/O requests get serviced in priority order and all media jobs are reference-aware - they automatically create and release references to parent media objects.
The Media Manager GUI displays the current job list and for each job in the list shows the status of that job, plus relevant information about the job, such as: the job type, ID, start time, end time, source, destination, and priority. A progress bar graphically depicts the percent completed for each job in the queue. User can suspend and later resume any job or cancel.
A support application to Media Manager is the Media Manager Watch Dog, which is used to monitor hot folders for automated file importation.
