Viewing the List of Discovered, Managed, and Unmanaged Devices

 

There are three types of views displayed on the Service Gateways page, depending on whether you select the Discover Devices, Unmanaged Devices, or Manage Service Gateways button. These views enable you to examine the discovery profiles, devices managed by Edge Services Director, and SDGs that are not currently managed.

To view the list of discovered, managed, and unmanaged devices:

  1. From the View selector, select Gateway View. The workspaces that are applicable to this view are displayed.
  2. From the Junos Space user interface, click the Build icon on the Edge Services Director banner.

    The functionalities that you can configure in this mode are displayed in the task pane.
  3. From the View pane, select the All Network item in Gateway view.
  4. Select Services Gateways from the task pane. The Service Gateways page is displayed.
  5. Select the Discover Gateway option.

    The Service Gateways—Discovered Devices view is displayed. The following table describes the fields in this view:

    Field

    Description

    Discovery Profile

    Unique name of the discovery profile.

    Description

    User-defined description of the profile.

    Created By

    Name of the user that created the profile.

    Created Time

    Date and time at which the profile was first created.

    Modified Time

    Date and time at which the profile was last updated.

    Last Execution Status

    Status of the last discovery process performed for a profile. This column indicates whether the discovery was completed or aborted.

    Click the link in this column to view extensive details about a discovery profile. The DiscoveryProfileName: Last Execution Status window appears. The Discovery Profile -- Last Execution Status window is divided into two panes. The top half of the page displays a bar chart that denotes the number of devices in each of the states during their discovery and process of addition to the Edge Services Manager database. The x-axis displays the different states of the devices during the discovery process and the y-axis denotes the number of devices corresponding to each state. Mouse over the different segments of the bar chart to highlight and view the total number of devices in each state. Click any of the states in the color-coding legend box to display only the details pertaining to that state to be shown beneath the graph in the table. The following color-coding legend denotes the devices in the different states:

    • Dark green—Denotes the devices that are already added and managed by Edge Services Director

    • Light green—Denotes the devices for which discovery succeeded

    • Yellow—Denotes the devices for which discovery is in progress

    • Red—Denotes the devices for which discovery failed

    • Dark orange—Denotes the devices for which synchronization failed

    • Light orange–Denotes the devices for which a timeout has occurred in the connection from Edge Services Director

    • Pink—Denotes the devices for which discovery is skipped

    See Table 1 for a description of the fields shown in the table of this dialog box.

    Note

    After you bring a device under the control and provisioning of Edge Services Director, you might require to define services, policy filters, and modify certain configuration settings of the managed devices before you want to start the collection of performance management (PM) statistics and counters. You can select a device or the high availability pair of SDGs, and select Start PM Collection. An information message is displayed to indicate whether a successful start of the retrieval of monitoring details has occurred. Else, an error message denotes a failure in the attempt to start collection of monitoring information. By default, retrieval and computation of statistics is enabled. You can terminate the collection of PM statistics at any time by selecting a device or pair of devices, and selecting Stop PM Collection. The option to start and stop collection of monitoring statistics is a toggle button. Alternatively, to change a managed device to be unmanaged and remove it from the administration and monitoring of Edge Services Director, you can also right-click a device or a high availability pair of SDGs in the list of devices that are displayed in the Managed Service Gateways page, and select Stop Managing.
