Resource Manager

Important

Enterprise Edition only

With the Knowage Community Edition the Resource Manager will be able to manage just the models folder in order to define metadata for data mining analysis. With the Knowage Enterprise Edition, will be able to manage all Knowage’s installation resources.

The Resource Manager functionality available under the Tool section of Knowage main menu, as shown in Figure below, allows you to manage all files within the Resources folder of the Knowage’s installation. In next sections we will see in details how to use the Resource Manager feature.

Model Metadata Definition

As already told at the beginning, models is the unique folder managed both by the Community and the Enterprise Edition. It contains all data-mining models usable by the Knowage Function Catalog.

For each model is possible to define its metadata, download and/or delete the model using directly the tree options:

Metadata management

The Metadata option opens a gui in which the user can defines metadata information about the model in use.

So, it’s possible insert:
  • a more specific Name for the model
  • the Version number of the model
  • the Type of analytics: a value selectable between ‘Descriptive’, ‘Predictive’ and ‘Prescriptive’
  • an image to represent the logic of the model uploadable througth the specific icon
  • a detailed description
  • information about the Accuracy and then Performance for the model
  • information about the way of usage of the model
  • information about formats for input and output data
