The home page

This dashboard is the first screen you will see when you log in to the Claranet Cloud. It is intended as a general view of the resources currently being used by you on four different screens, which are from left to right, top down:

  • Enterprise Resources
  • Running Virtual Appliances
  • Virtual Datacenters
  • Events

These four screens can be minimised or maximised to give a better view of the data in which you are interested.

Enterprise Resource Statistics

This screen shows statistics of the resources used by the Virtual Datacenters you manage:

  • Virtual CPUs used by the Virtual Machines (total and currently running).
  • Storage size (total and used) of disks used by Virtual Machines (total and currently running).
  • RAM used by the Virtual Machines (total and currently running).
  • External storage (in volumes defined in the datacenter's storage section) used by Virtual Machines (total and currently running).
  • Total and used number of VLANs defined.
  • Total, reserved and used number of public IPs.

For each column (other than Public IPs), your limit is shown by the green bar, and your current usage is shown by the red bar.

For the Public IPs bar, your limit is shown by the yellow bar, the number of Public IPs reserved for allocation to any VM is shown by the green bar, and the number of Public IP addresses in use is shown by the yellow bar.

This is a list of all the Virtual Appliances defined and data about them:

  • Virtual datacenter currently hosting this Virtual Appliance
  • Total Virtual Machines deployed

Events

This is a condensed view of the Events view logs. It is controlled with the same privileges as the Events view, so if you have no events privileges, no events window will display here.

You can double-click on an event to display the event detail, and copy it to the clipboard if you need.
