    Understanding the Admin Menu

    The Admin menu contains administrative settings for the Web, Web applications, Web user accounts, and monitoring activities on the server. Web settings include session timeout, message of the day, and Web policies. Web applications include the diagnostic tools, ping parameters, and traceroute parameters. Web user accounts include user access, groups, and password reset. Server monitoring includes viewing logs, login history, memory, CPU, and IP/MPLSView system processes.

    When you select the Admin menu, the Administration window is displayed. Among the sub-options under Application, you can remove stale interfaces, stale tunnels, and stale routers from your topology. For example, Figure 1 illustrates how to use the Adminstration window to remove a stale tunnel.
