NMS entities

NMS entities refer to elements of the Grid Topology tree that appear above the component level (the names of the StorageGRID Webscale deployment, locations, grid nodes, and services).

NMS entity settings determine the name that appears in the Grid Topology tree and elsewhere in the Grid Management Interface.

Attention: Never change these settings unless advised by technical support.

Names are allocated to each entity through Object IDs (OIDs) that are unique to each entity while being hierarchically organized. Each row in the NMS Entities table allocates a name to an entity OID. The combination of OID hierarchy and position in the table determines the sequence of appearance in the Grid Topology tree.
