VELOS Dashboards

VELOS dashboard overview

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.)
System controller dashboard (initial view)
Both of the dashboards are divided into sections that show:
  • Partition details
  • Active alarms
  • 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 to.
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 click
DASHBOARD
from any other area in the system controller webUI.
System Controller dashboard
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 chassis.
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
DASHBOARD
from any other area in the chassis partition webUI.
Chassis Partition dashboard
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 that partition.
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.
