|Summary: documentation for the Nodes panel in the Console Administration Center.|
When using Console standalone mode, the Nodes panel is not available since Standalone mode only allows the use of one Node.
Login with a user account that already has the Admin role and switch to the Admin Center:
Now move to the Nodes panel:
|Options available in the Nodes panel are global to the entire Console, i.e. all Applications managed in the Console.|
A Node is a server/instance on which AIP Core has been installed together with the Node Service (see AIP Node package - back-end installation). The node registers itself in Console (or is registered in Console 1.x) and can then be used for analysis purposes. The Nodes section described in this page:
In 1.x, it is also possible to do the following (this is not possible in ≥ 2.x because Nodes are stateless):
|Name of the registered Node. This name is determined automatically and consists of the server host name and the port that the Node service is running on.|
|URL of the registered Node.|
Shows the status of the disk storage on the Node. Rolling the mouse pointer over the icon will display the amount of free disk space in GB. The icon will be displayed in yellow when disk space is low:
Shows the status of all CAST Storage Service/PostgreSQL instances (whether it is "up" or "down" (unreachable)) configured in Console (see Administration Center - Settings - CSS and Measurement settings). Rolling the mouse pointer over the icon will display the host name and port number of the instance.
Use this option to expand the selected node and view the AIP Core release running in the node, other technical specifications of the node itself and access the system log download (see below):
Available in ≥ 2.7. A section allowing you to download the Node Service logs (i.e. the %PROGRAMDATA%\CAST\AIP-Node\logs\aip-node.log file) for the current node. Clicking the icon will show the following dialog allowing you to choose a date range and then download the logs:
Click to add a new Node:
Name of the Node as defined when it was added. Note that Nodes listed:
|AIP Core release|
Displays the release of AIP Core installed on the Node:
|Host||URL of the 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 Node:
Choose to either enable or disable the selected Node:
Click to delete the Node. Doing so will remove the Node from Console.
Deleting the Node does not delete any Applications, Domains or schemas associated with the deleted Node, however all references to these will be removed from Console. If you re-add a deleted Node (providing no changes have been made on the Node itself or in the CAST Storage Service/PostgreSQL instance), then all Applications, Domains and schemas associated with the 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:
This information may take a few minutes to populate after adding a new Node.
Declaring a new Node in Console 1.x when the embedded Dashboards have already been configured requires that you save the Dashboard Integration settings to ensure any snapshots generated with the Node before it was declared are made available in the dashboards.
