Monitoring Overview

mfusion can monitor and manage RansNet gateway appliances remotely with multi-tenancy control. The devices are added as Host under Entity (Host Group). The monitoring items per Host can be controlled through the Host Template, depending on its respective model (eg. CMG, HSG, UA or HSA).

The in-depth view of monitoring details is provided in ‘ORCHESTRATOR > Monitoring‘. It also provides tools for you to easily control host Items and host Triggers. The monitoring data are grouped under five tabs:

  • Dashboard: This tab contains Host Status Summary and Problem Summary sections to provide an overview of the Host under the selected Entity, You can also customize the Host Graph Overview section to highlight important Hosts. In addition, there is a Map View section if your devices support Location Services.
  • SD-WAN: This tab gives a graphical view of the topology of an individual entity if the network structure is defined in ‘ORCHESTRATOR > Gateway & SD-Branch‘.
  • Hosts: The tab page lists down all the hosts added to the particular entity with key information like Host model, firmware version, Host uptime, inbound/outbound traffic info, the status of the Host, and Public/Private WAN IP. See more details in Host Status Summary
  • Alerts: This tab displays the alerts that are configured in the host management, By default, the Host is pre-configured with basic alerts and the alert differs based on the Template selected while adding a host.
  • Items: This tab provides an easy way to check the status of the item across multiple hosts under all /individual Entity. See details in Items Summary
