The VELOS dashboards display relevant system information when you log in to
the system controller or the chassis partition webUI. For example, this figure shows how the
default partition is set up initially. All of the slots are associated with the default
partition. (Note that only four of the slots have bladed installed.)
Both of the dashboards are divided into sections that show:
High availability status
Partition details on the system controller dashboard show an overview of all the partitions,
and on the chassis partition dashboard they show details about the partition you are logged in
Active alarms show system alerts that have occurred recently. The system updates the alarms
every few seconds. It shows the source of the alert, its severity, a brief description of what
occurred, and when it happened.
High availability status shows which system controller is currently active,
and whether the two controllers are both healthy. If both are healthy, the two system controllers
handle traffic and are redundant. The system is functioning normally.
System controller dashboard
The system controller dashboard shows information about which slots have
blades in them, how the chassis is divided into partitions, active alarms, and system controller
high availability status. It is displayed when you log in to the system controller webUI, or
from any other area in the system controller webUI.
This system has blades in slots 1 and 2. The partition called custpart is running on those two
slots. The default partition is associated with slots 5, 6, 7, and 8 but those slots and slots 3
and 4 are all empty.
The Chassis Partition Overview section shows a graphical view of the
This system has three partitions. Custpart1 is assigned to slot 1, and color
coded in blue, and custpart2 is assigned to slot 2, and color coded in black. The slots
associated with the default partition are shown in green (but those slots are empty for now).
Partitions are listed in the table on the right. The IP address of an active partition is shown
as a link that you can click to log directly in to the partition.
Chassis partition dashboard
The chassis partition dashboard shows which partition you are logged in to,
which slots are associated with that partition, active alarms for that partition, and lists the
tenants that are deployed in that partition. The system high availability status is also shown.
It provides a quick overview of the partition, and is displayed when you log in to the chassis
partition webUI, or click
from any other area in the chassis
The System Summary section of the partition dashboard shows a graphical view
of the chassis showing information about the partition you are in only (custompart). The
chassis partition takes up slots 1 and 2 and uses 44 vCPUs. Details on the right summarize
how many vCPUs are available, and how many are deployed and in use by the one tenant in
The Tenant Overview on another system lists several tenant deployments in the
partition, the type, the number of vCPUs in use by the tenant, the status, and the
management IP addresses. You can click the name of a tenant to view the tenant
deployment information. And click the IP address to go to the log in screen of the
tenant in a new browser window. The View All button lists all of the tenants on a
separate screen with paging if needed.
The High Availability Status for the partition shows the active system
controller, preferred node, and status. On the dashboard, Redundant indicates the
system is being backed up from the active system controller to the standby.
