Accessing the Nodes panel
Login with a user account that already has the Admin role and switch to the Admin Center:
Now move to the Nodes panel:
An AIP Node is a server on which CAST AIP has been installed together with the AIP Node package (see AIP Node package - back-end installation). The node can then be added into the AIP Console and used for analysis purposes.
The Nodes section:
- lists all AIP Nodes that have been configured for use in the AIP Console (each line represents an AIP Node)
- provides a means to:
- add new AIP Nodes
- view the status of associated CAST Storage Services/PostgreSQL instances
- edit existing AIP Nodes
- disable/enable AIP Nodes
- delete existing AIP Nodes
Click to add a new AIP Node:
Name of the AIP Nodes as defined when it was added. Note that AIP Nodes listed:
|AIP Core release|
Displays the release of AIP Core installed on the AIP Node:
|Host||URL of the AIP node as defined when it was added.|
Shows the status of the associated CAST Storage Service/PostgreSQL instance - whether it is "up"or "down" (unreachable).
Use this option to edit an existing AIP Node:
Choose to either enable or disable the selected AIP Node:
Click to delete the AIP Node. Doing so will remove the AIP Node from the AIP Console.
Deleting the AIP Node does not delete any Applications, Domains or schemas associated with the deleted AIP Node, however all references to these will be removed from the AIP Console. If you re-add a deleted AIP Node (providing no changes have been made on the AIP Node itself or in the CAST Storage Service/PostgreSQL instance), then all Applications, Domains and schemas associated with the AIP Node will be visible once again and can be used without further configuration.
Use this option to expand the selected node and view the status of the associated CAST Storage Service/PostgreSQL instance and the technical specifications of the node itself:
Declaring a new AIP Node in AIP Console when the embedded Dashboards have already been configured requires that you save the Dashboard Integration settings to ensure any snapshots generated with the AIP Node before it was declared are made available in the dashboards.
