Legacy SmartConsole Apps

Its about the SmartUpdate, SmartEvent, SmartView Monitor and SmartDashboard (and dare I say SmartView Tracker) legacy apps.

When will they be fully consolidated into the R80.x SmartConsole? (not asking about SmartView Tracker in this instance).

In the meantime it could perhaps be beneficial to have the launch options (links) all grouped together in one place, perhaps the Application Menu, as is the case with SmartUpdate (although the legacy app name is not exposed)?

Of course the existing links in their current locations are valid and only a short orientation period is required to learn them but to give the optimisation and efficiency in administration the links grouped together might be better for now.

Re: Legacy SmartConsole Apps

Just to clarify what you said:

  • SmartView Tracker is deprecated, so no chance that gets included Smiley Happy
  • SmartEvent is mostly integrated, except for the Event Policy settings which are in the separate UI
  • For the other things still in SmartDashboard, the plan is to move those into SmartConsole

As far as timelines for tying all these things in, they haven't been finalized.

I do like the idea of having the links for those legacy apps centralized, though.

It is actually there, with a slightly changed name... Just saying...

Re: Legacy SmartConsole Apps

I call the embedeem SmartConsole log viewer SmartLog but anyway...

While you're here can you give any info on the SmartView Tracker feature Remote log file management (switch and fetch from remote gateway) and if that is already hidden in the SmartConsole or if it will come back to exist in the SmartConsole?

To be clear. I know I can open SmartView Tracker R80.x (today) and attach to the $FWDIR/log/ active or archive or I can do the same in SmartConsole R80.x, using the options button and File Open (and get the 'your going about this the slow way' message but can I do remote file management in the unified SmartConsole?

And why isn't there an archive button in the Log properties of management and log servers so that a schedule can be set in the GUI for a zip and ship of archived logs?

Just curious .

Thanks,

Don

Re: Legacy SmartConsole Apps

Huh, I didn't even realize those were features Smiley Happy

Those would definitely be "nice to haves" in the new SmartConsole (or more specifically, the SmartView piece).

Indeed :-). The fetch logs feature was neat (it even did appended the fw object name to the switched log file name (with two underscores between them).

Only the merge logs part was missing from the Tracker (fw mergelogs). I guess that is not anything interesting nowadays and as longs as SOLR indexed fetched logs (for SmartLog and SmartEvent) then it could be good.
