About the Deployment Tracker

Security Controls includes a feature called the Security Controls Deployment Tracker. This feature enables you to monitor the status of patch deployment tasks currently in progress. Deployment Tracker utilizes the Security Controls Patch Service, which is a component of the Security Controls Console Service. This service receives status messages from the target machines that are being patched. The service is installed and started during the Security Controls installation and it listens on the same port as the other console services (TCP port 3121). If this service is stopped, then Deployment Tracker will not be able to provide updated state information.

To start Deployment Tracker, select View > Deployment Tracker. For information on how to use the dialog, see About the Deployment Tracker Dialog.
