The normal way to view the status of a partition, is via the Partitions option in the Navigator panel on the left of the Console. The Reactivated partitions always appear at the bottom of the partition list.

An alternative is to run the standard ArcSight SQL script 'GetPartitionInfo.sql' via 'arcdbutil' or SqlPlus. It produces a file PartitionInfo.log in which one can view the status of all partitions.

However, if you need to see how far the system has currently worked through the re-activation, one can examing the partition archiver logs or check in the agent.log file in the ArcSight 'db\logs' directory. But if checking in 'agent.log' file, do not interfere with operation of the ArcSight system. You may right-click on the partition entry in the Console Navigation panel and choose the option to perform a scheduled activity in case Partition Management updating is outstanding. But it is usually ok to look at the status but preferable not to interfere.
