Devices tab

Main device tab

The device tab shows an overview over all devices and the overall tree structure. Selecting a specific device or a group in the tree will give you more information about the device or group of devices.

In the device view different tabs and per device information is shown. Clicking on a group gives aggregated metric such as traffic bandwidth, status and map information

Clicking on a group of devices or on a single device in the tree opens the device tab.

Beside the name an edit menu can be called by pressing on the small card (see red circle). This allows to edit the following:

  • custom / user defined device name (this is then used instead of host name)
  • Description
  • Location

In location the position of the device on the map is defined. The default localization is IP address resolution. It is possible to override this with coordinates. The address function is so far for information purposes only. All attributes from this page are accessible and can be defined through the REST API.

Set your custom device name by clicking on the small card item beside the name

device-tab-user-defined

Change location on map

Use the file card beside the name of the device to define its location. Coordinates overrule automatic IP address localization.

If a console connection is available (can be configured via settings) the green button will open a new window with a remote web based ssh shell. It is possible to select any user for login.

Copy and paste in the remote web ssh shell

Please use the browsers "paste" function to copy information (e.g. password).
The shortcuts like ctrl+C do not work! The remote ssh console opens in a new window. Make sure this is not blocked by your browser.

The main page displays various system and network information in addition to settings and a summary of the data traffic and disc utilization.

Graph Tab

The graphs tab shows you various metric information. You can use the selector to adjust the time period.

Process information can be enabled in settings but will create more bandwidth demands. Please use with care when on a mobile connection.
