Monitoring Library activity

Manual or automated Library Update and Refresh activity can be monitored in a few ways:

Temporary Status Indicator

When using Plex Web App, temporary indicator messages will appear toward the bottom of the browser window. As Library activity progresses, notifications will slide up to keep you informed.

Using the Activity Page

Plex Web App offers an Activity page that lets you monitor major processes on the Plex Media Server. If you have several Servers, the activity shown is the selected Server.

To see a Server's activity:

  • Click the Server name in the sidebar
  • Click the Activity button
  • Choose Alerts
  • Note the Activity queue at the bottom of the page
