Vunetrix Network Monitor vCloud

Vunetrix Manual: General Layout

The main layout of the Enterprise Console program consists of different elements which will be shortly described here.

Vunetrix Enterprise Console

The Enterprise Console

From top to bottom, the main layout consists of:

Often, data and settings are displayed directly in the Enterprise Console. For some functionalities and extended setup, a new window of the system's default browser will be opened and the web interface will show up. In this case, you'll be logged in to the web interface automatically via username and hash value. In your browser, it might be necessary to confirm the certificate used by Vunetrix's web server. For more information, please see SSL Certificate Warning section. If you configure your Enterprise Console for a connection with more than one Vunetrix core server, keep an eye on the server selection bar to choose which server's data you want to access.

Windows Menu

The Windows menu gives access to general configuration and settings. Find a detailed description in the Windows Menu Structure section.

Page Header Bar

Enterprise Console's Page Header Bar

Enterprise Console's Page Header Bar

The page header consists of the following parts:

  • Vunetrix Logo
    Click on the Vunetrix Network Monitor logo to open the Ajax web interface in the browser configured in the Enterprise Console's Options. If several Vunetrix core servers are configured, the browser will load the web interface of the server currently selected in the Devices tab.
  • Previous Viewpoint / Next Viewpoint (Arrow Symbols)
    The enterprise stores the different views shown while you navigate through the application. Using these arrows (or using the shortcuts Alt+Left and Alt+Right) you can step back and forth in the history, just as known from your browser.
  • Refresh (Arrow Circle Symbol)
    Click on the refresh symbol (F5) any time to refresh the current screen. This will immediately query data for the current screen from all active Vunetrix core servers, just as the automatic refresh does, which can be configured in the Options settings.
  • Global Sensor Status Symbols
    This area shows the aggregated status of all sensors from all active Vunetrix core servers, divided into different sensor states. Depending on the sensors' status you will see colored boxes with numbers which symbolize the sensors. For example, you can see how many sensors are in Up, Down, Warning, Pause, Unusual, or Unknown state. Click on a box to view a list of all sensors in the respective status. For a detailed description, please see Sensor States section. Note: When viewing sensor lists, you can show the sensors of one server at a time only. So, the global sensor overview shows the total number of sensors in a certain state on all active servers, but viewing a list of all sensors in a certain state from all servers is not possible for performance reasons.

Menu Tabs Bar and Page Content

You can navigate through your setup using the menu tabs bar. Please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with all menu items. The page content underneath varies dependent on the selected menu tab. It shows various information about your monitored objects. For a detailed description of all tabs, please see the Menu Tabs and Page Content section.

Server Selection

Enterprise Console's Server Selection and Search Bar

Enterprise Console's Server Selection and Search Bar

In the server selection bar you see all active Vunetrix core server connections which are configured for the current Windows user account (saved in the registry).

The server you select here determines globally which information is shown in all Menu Tabs (except the Devices tab; the server selection does not apply there). Depending on your selection, Libraries, Sensors, Alarms, Maps, Reports, Logs, Tickets, and Setup options will be shown for the respective server only.

Select All Vunetrix Servers to show consolidated information for all active Vunetrix core servers which appear in the list. Note: For technical reasons, you cannot show consolidated information from all servers in the Sensors, Setup, and Search Results tab. In order to use those tabs, please decide on a single Vunetrix core server from the server selection bar.

Select Manage Vunetrix Servers to add or remove Vunetrix Servers from the list, or to edit an existing one.

Search Bar

Select a single Vunetrix core server from the server selection bar and enter a key word to search the respective server. In the Search Results tab, the Enterprise Console will display matching monitoring objects, help topics, and related objects. If you click on a monitoring object (for example, a sensor) in the search results, the Enterprise Console will open this object in the Devices tab, showing details in the device tree.

Note: If you start another search underneath the results within the Search Results tab, this will open a browser window, showing results.

Note: If you have configured a connection in the Vunetrix Servers options which uses a Root ID other than 0, this setting will be ignored while searching. In this case, Search Results for the entire server (starting at Root ID 0) will be shown.
