The Admin Console displays two separate views of the cluster:
Cluster Status Page
When you initially log in to the Admin Console, the Cluster Status page appears.
The Cluster Status page enables you to view cluster-wide information, such as number of nodes, cluster status, number of errors, number of streams, and capacity data. If the cluster is configured with subclusters, you must expand a subcluster node name to display the associated IP addresses and then click an IP address to display node information. For more information, see Managing the Cluster.
Node Status Page
When you click an IP address in the Node IP column, the Node Status page appears for the selected node.
The Node Status page enables you to view information specific to your cluster node, such as hardware status, health processor status, uptime, and Netmail Store software version. For more information, see Managing Nodes.
The Node Status page also includes the following sections:
- Node Info. Provides general information about the hardware installed on the node, as well as time server information and current uptime.
- Node Configuration. Provides the cluster and network configuration settings assigned to the node. Use this status information to quickly verify your system configuration without using SNMP commands.
- Node Operations. Describes the state of the node. If you encounter a problem in your storage cluster, a Support representative can use the information in this page to help you determine if the node is communicating effectively with other nodes and resources in the cluster.
- Hardware Status. Provides status and operational reporting (if available) for various hardware components installed on the node. Use this status information to retrieve node system data, such as the serial number and BIOS version.
