The V2PC GUI opens to Monitor > Dashboard > System Statistics tab by default.
To exit and log out of the V2PC GUI, click the Settings icon at top right of the page and select Logout.
Using the Dashboard
V2PC provides convenient system, statistics, and alarm and event monitoring using the Dashboard.
After deploying the applications and creating the media workflows, a logical next step is to monitor the statistics and events generated by the system. The Dashboard aggregates all monitoring information on the same page to give a snapshot of the system, available in the following tabs:
- System Statistics – Displays high-level system and application statistics.
- Media Workflows – Lists all configured media workflows. You can drill down to a node of the media workflow to see its CPU, memory, or disk usage. You can also see the performance, events, and nodes associated with the media workflow on this tab.
- Regions – Lists all configured regions. You can also drill down to Provider > Zones > Nodes to see the node CPU, memory, or disk usage.
- Nodes – Lists all nodes available in the system. This tab also shows the performance, events, and associated media workflows of the node.
