System Status on the Management Appliance

The features described in this section only apply to the Management Appliance.

The System Status tab is different on the Management Appliance. The list of monitored conditions is outlined in the " System Status "topic, but the Management Appliance also has the ability to show the system status for any joined Web Appliance, as well as its own system status. Also, there are a number of controls that differ from those on the Web Appliances.

The initial page of the System Status tab on the Management Appliance shows a table divided into two sections:

  • The Management Appliance section contains two columns of information:
