7 Heading 1 Arial, 32 pt Heading 2 Arial, 20 pt Subheading Arial, 18 pt Text Arial, pt Course objectives We will identify best practices for uncovering root causes as well as creating future-proof solutions. –File system management in Sectra PACS –Create and manage DICOM SCPs –Identify and fix some common archive issues –Setup and troubleshoot teleradiology

8 Heading 1 Arial, 32 pt Heading 2 Arial, 20 pt Subheading Arial, 18 pt Text Arial, pt Course segments 1 Where are the disks for which I am responsible? 3 System/applica tion/User files 4 Managing DICOM Servers 5 How to handle failed archive jobs 6 Teleradiology How to set it up and troubleshoot Hands-on 2 Management of log files

9 Heading 1 Arial, 32 pt Heading 2 Arial, 20 pt Subheading Arial, 18 pt Text Arial, pt Objectives Course Segment 1 Awareness of architectures of different servers Interrelation of server components How I can be proactive in administering disk space 1 Where are the disks for which I am responsible?

10 Heading 1 Arial, 32 pt Heading 2 Arial, 20 pt Subheading Arial, 18 pt Text Arial, pt Disk Management Different server, different disks WISE SHS Imageserver Different purpose for different disks Operating System (C:) Application (C:,D:) Image store (I:, J:, K:, …) Database (F:,G:,H) Use your SectraGuard Monitoring login to monitor disk space.

11 Heading 1 Arial, 32 pt Heading 2 Arial, 20 pt Subheading Arial, 18 pt Text Arial, pt Learned from Segment 1 Server differences and impact on administration Introduction to issues that affect disk space Proactive administration of disks 1 Where are the disks for which I am responsible?

12 Heading 1 Arial, 32 pt Heading 2 Arial, 20 pt Subheading Arial, 18 pt Text Arial, pt Objectives Course Segment 2 Understand where log files are located Understand administration of PACS logging Differentiate between PACS core logging and SHS logging 2 Management of log files

13 Heading 1 Arial, 32 pt Heading 2 Arial, 20 pt Subheading Arial, 18 pt Text Arial, pt Management of logging levels WISE server logging and MWL logging – command line: w_ping –L # w_config_mwlscp DICOM SCPs – DICOM Server Toolbox SHS – Enterprise Manager

14 Heading 1 Arial, 32 pt Heading 2 Arial, 20 pt Subheading Arial, 18 pt Text Arial, pt Log File Management Log folders – sized initially for PACS operation. Specific Logging locations: PACS Core logging: C:\Program Files\Sectra\{service}\log SHS logging Standard logs: C:\Program Files\Sectra\log Additional Logging administered in Enterprise Manager

15 Heading 1 Arial, 32 pt Heading 2 Arial, 20 pt Subheading Arial, 18 pt Text Arial, pt When logging via Enterprise Manager create log destinations on your local workstation Turn down DICOM Server log levels unless trouble- shooting On core servers logs are stored in C:\program files\sectra\ \logs\saved Use your Sectra Guard Monitoring account to respond to warnings before issues become critical Log File Management

16 Heading 1 Arial, 32 pt Heading 2 Arial, 20 pt Subheading Arial, 18 pt Text Arial, pt Learned from Segment 2 Location of various log files How to create SHS destinations and interests How to clean up log files to gain disk space 2 Management of log files

17 Heading 1 Arial, 32 pt Heading 2 Arial, 20 pt Subheading Arial, 18 pt Text Arial, pt Objectives Course Segment 3 Understand how administrative activity impacts disk use Understand need to handle third- party applications Understand how to avoid introducing problems through administrative actions 3 System/applica tion/User files

18 Heading 1 Arial, 32 pt Heading 2 Arial, 20 pt Subheading Arial, 18 pt Text Arial, pt System/Application/User Files PACS is sized for PACS SectraGuard Monitoring User files should either be stored on a user workstation, or on a share If installing several 3 rd -party applications, an extra local drive should be added

19 Heading 1 Arial, 32 pt Heading 2 Arial, 20 pt Subheading Arial, 18 pt Text Arial, pt System/Application/User Files When deciding on 3 rd party apps, be aware of the data they generate, not just install size A word about anti-virus software and updates How do I know what is using my disk space? Manual Effort More 3 rd party apps (e.g. windirstat)

20 Heading 1 Arial, 32 pt Heading 2 Arial, 20 pt Subheading Arial, 18 pt Text Arial, pt System/Application/User Files

21 Heading 1 Arial, 32 pt Heading 2 Arial, 20 pt Subheading Arial, 18 pt Text Arial, pt Learned from Segment 3 Awareness of how administrative activity impacts disk use How to proactively manage disk space How to use tools to manage disk space 3 System/applica tion/User files

22 Heading 1 Arial, 32 pt Heading 2 Arial, 20 pt Subheading Arial, 18 pt Text Arial, pt Objectives Course Segment 4 Learn to better manage short-term storage Understanding stages of image import and how they affect disk space Understand how to manage DICOM SCPs and base folders to best use disk space 4 Managing DICOM Servers

23 Heading 1 Arial, 32 pt Heading 2 Arial, 20 pt Subheading Arial, 18 pt Text Arial, pt Logging and applications remain fairly static Growth in a facility usually implies growth in modalities and, therefore, number of images Exams keep getting bigger Its important that the PACS administrator understand how to manage DICOM servers DICOM Server Management

24 Heading 1 Arial, 32 pt Heading 2 Arial, 20 pt Subheading Arial, 18 pt Text Arial, pt Image storage SCP/SCU in_dcm Autofiler All DICOM communication requires: Host Port AE Title Sectra PACS establishes storage location using the concept of base folders DICOM Server Management

25 Heading 1 Arial, 32 pt Heading 2 Arial, 20 pt Subheading Arial, 18 pt Text Arial, pt DICOM Server Management Prerequisite – Base Folder A base folder is required before a DICOM SCP can function. A base folder is a friendly name for a shared disk location. Base folders are created from the Windows command line with the command: w_basefolder

26 Heading 1 Arial, 32 pt Heading 2 Arial, 20 pt Subheading Arial, 18 pt Text Arial, pt DICOM Server Management EXAMPLE: To create a base folder called R3_MR on a server calledpacs2 in a folder with a share name of folders$ you would use the command: C:\> w_basefolder NAME=R3_MR LOCATION=file:\\pacs2\folders$\R3_mr ID_STRING=R3_MR NOTE: the file: preceding the location is required!

27 Heading 1 Arial, 32 pt Heading 2 Arial, 20 pt Subheading Arial, 18 pt Text Arial, pt DICOM Server Management A base folder can have a friendly name, for example Room3_MRI – although, the shorter, the better Each base folder requires NAME LOCATION ID_STRING (usually the same as NAME)
