The CONTROL/MONITORING Panel presents the cluster administrator with a limited runtime status of the cluster. It displays the status of the pulse daemon, the LVS routing table, and the LVS-spawned nanny processes.


The fields for CURRENT LVS ROUTING TABLE and CURRENT LVS PROCESSES remain blank until you actually start the cluster, as shown in Section 13.8 Starting the Cluster.

Auto update

The status display on this page can be updated automatically at a user configurable interval. To enable this feature, click on the Auto update checkbox and set the desired update frequency in the Update frequency in seconds text box (the default value is 10 seconds).

It is not recommended that you set the automatic update to an interval less than 10 seconds. Doing so may make it difficult to reconfigure the Auto update interval because the page will update too frequently. If you encounter this issue, simply click on another panel and then back on CONTROL/MONITORING.

The Auto update feature does not work with all browsers, such as Mozilla.

Update information now

You can manually update the status information manually by clicking this button.


Clicking this button takes you to a help screen with information on how to change the administrative password for the Piranha Configuration Tool.
