Viewing the Nodes page

When you need more detailed information about your StorageGRID system than the Dashboard provides, you can use the Nodes page to view metrics for the entire grid, each site in the grid, and each node at a site.


Nodes Menu

From the tree view on the left, you can see all the sites and all the nodes in your StorageGRID system. The icon for each node indicates if the node is connected or if there are any active alerts.

Connection state icons

If a node is disconnected from the grid, the tree view shows a blue or gray connection state icon, not the icon for any underlying alerts.
  • Not connected - Unknown blue question mark icon: The node is not connected to the grid for an unknown reason. For example, the network connection between nodes has been lost or the power is down. The Unable to communicate with node alert might also be triggered. Other alerts might be active as well. This situation requires immediate attention.
    Note: A node might appear as Unknown during managed shutdown operations. You can ignore the Unknown state in these cases.
  • Not connected - Administratively down gray questionmark icon: The node is not connected to the grid for an expected reason. For example, the node, or services on the node, has been gracefully shut down, the node is rebooting, or the software is being upgraded. One or more alerts might also be active.

Alert icons

If a node is connected to the grid, the tree view shows one of the following icons, depending on if there are any current alerts for the node.
