Dashboard Overview

 

What is J-Web Dashboard

The J-Web dashboard provides a unified overview of the system and network status retrieved from SRX Series devices.

To use the dashboard at the top-level menu, select Dashboard. By default, the Dashboard page displays the front view of the chassis and all the widget thumbnails.

Figure 1 shows an example of the Dashboard page of SRX4600 Services Gateway.

Chassis View

You can view the image of the chassis and its component parts using the Dashboard. The ports reflect the most real-time status and are colored to indicate the port link status. For example, the ge port LED is green when the port is up and red when the port is down. Major or minor alarm indicators appear in red. When you insert or remove a card, the chassis view reflects the change immediately.

Note

To use the Chassis View, you must install a recent version of Adobe Flash that supports ActionScript and AJAX (Version 9).

Using the chassis view, you can:

  • Mouse over a port to view the port name and help tips.

  • Use the Show Front View and Show Rear View buttons at the top right corner to toggle between front and rear views of the chassis.

  • Use the arrow button at the left top corner to hide or show the chassis view.

  • Right-click on each of the component to view the chassis information, switch to front or back view of the chassis, and configure or monitor ports.

  • Use the zoom option on the left side of the chassis to zoom in or out for SRX5000 line of devices.

    Note
    • J-Web supports I/O card (IOC4) and Routing Engine (RE3) line cards for SRX5000 line of devices and Switch Control Board (SCB4) line cards for SRX5600 and SRX5800 devices.

    • J-Web supports Wi–Fi Mini-Physical Interface Module (Mini-PIM) for SRX320, SRX340, SRX345, and SRX550M devices. The physical interface for the Wi-Fi Mini-PIM uses the name wl-x/0/0, where x identifies the slot on the services gateway where the Mini-PIM is installed.

Table 1 summarizes the fields in Chassis View.

Description

Chassis View

  • Provides a graphical representation of the hardware chassis.

  • Displays the front or rear panel view of the device and shows which slots are occupied. When you insert or remove a card, the Chassis View reflects the change immediately.

  • Changes color to indicate the port link status. For example, the ge port LED is green and steadily on when the port is up and red when the port is down.

  • Displays help tips when you hover the mouse over a port.

Note: You can also view the sub-ports details configured on any or all ports of the SRX5K-IOC4-MRATE line card.

Show Front View

Displays the front view of the chassis and its components.

Show Rear View

Displays the rear view of the chassis and its components.

Zoom

Available on the left side of the chassis to zoom in or zoom out the chassis view.

Reset

Available on the left side of the chassis to set the chassis view for the default size.

Work with Widgets

Each widget pane acts as a separate frame. You can click + icon to add separate dashboard and name it as per your ease. You can refresh the display of the Dashboard page by clicking the refresh icon at the top right-hand corner above the widget pane.

You can choose any one of the categories to view widgets on your device:

  • All Widgets—Displays all the supported widgets

  • Applications—Displays only the supported application related widgets

  • Devices—Displays only the supported device related widgets

  • Security—Displays only the supported security related widgets

Note
  • The Threat Activity pane is not available on SRX5400, SRX5600, and SRX5800 devices.

  • For SRX Series devices configured for logical systems, the Logical System Identification and Logical System Profile panes are displayed when you log in as a user logical system administrator. These are the only logical system panes available in Dashboard Preferences.

  • If the rescue configuration is not set, the set rescue configuration link directs you to the Device Administration > Configuration Management > Rescue page to set the rescue configuration.

To use a widget on the Dashboard:

  1. Drag the widgets from the palette or thumbnail container to your dashboard.

    When you add more widgets on the J-Web Dashboard, you can observe high CPU usage on the Routing Engine for a short span of time on every refresh. We recommend that you use four widgets for lower CPU consumption.

  2. Mouse over the top of each widget to minimize, refresh, and close by using the respective icons.Note

    The dashlet data is refreshed every minute by default. You cannot manually configure the refresh interval of the dashlet. If the data is not aged in the cache, data loads from the cache during the dashlet refresh. If the data is aged, it is retrieved from the device during the next refresh interval cycle.

Table 2 provides the dashboard widgets options based on the selected device.
