GigaSpaces Ops Manager
The GigaSpaces Ops Manager is an enterprise-grade management platform that can be implemented for GigaSpaces-based applications across on-premise, cloud, and Kubernetes environments. Ops Manager is a robust web interface that provides visibility and real-time information about your GigaSpaces clusters and their services. It enables you to better monitor your clusters, and perform troubleshooting activities by analyzing various performance metrics, and reviewing alerts with defined thresholds. You can drill down to the partition level and create dump files, to review service log files for root-cause analysis.
In addition to real-time monitoring and troubleshooting capabilities, Ops Manager enables you to review and analyze data that resides within the cluster. Use Ops Manager to review Space-related information, such as object types and properties, and execute various queries as part of data discovery.
Accessing Ops Manager in a Secure Environment
When using role-based authentication, Ops manager uses three properties to authenticate the user and allow access to Ops manager functions
- User name
The set of features available depends on the role assigned to the user:
- Admin (superuser) – has access to all capabilities, including features related to service orchestration, that have a high impact on the environment and resource consumption (e.g. scale up/down of service partitions).
- Manager – deploys services and connects with client applications and other components such as databases, ETL’s etc. A manager will deploy and test for the proper function and performance. A manager may also analyze the data behavior within the Space.
- Viewer – data expert with a goal to view, interact with and query the data.
See GigaSpaces Ops Manager Authorization for details on system features that are available based on the user role.
When using role-based authentication, Ops Manager initially displays a login screen:
Enter a value user name and password, and press Sign In.
See Security Concepts for details on setting up users and passwords.
Ops Manager Features
The Ops Manager allows you to perform the basic functions of GigaSpaces using an intuitive, GUI-based interface.
The user can perform the following functions:
Connect to a Data Source — Connect InsightEdge to a traditional SQL database or data warehouse and load the selected data. Use the generated Blueprint to deploy the Space application with its configuration to the InsightEdge data platform.
Monitor my services — Review the real-time performance of the system, and enable an IT administrator or developer to easily monitor the health of all its service types. Receive real-time availability and resource alerts immediately when they appear.
Analyze my data — Enables an IT administrator or developer to review the Space data, drill down to its object types and analyze the data by executing queries using the SQL editor.
The Ops Manager is deployed along with the Manager and the REST Manager API, and uses the same entry point. In order to open Ops Manager in your browser and view your GigaSpaces environment, you need to access the Manager's IP address on port 8090, or use localhost if your environment is deployed on a local agent.
If you had a previous version of GigaSpaces, when you used the Manager IP address and port in the URL field of your browser to access the REST Manager API (http://<MANAGER_IP>:8090/), you were automatically redirected to http://<MANAGER_IP>:8090/v2. This information may be stored in your browser cache and prevent you from opening Ops Manager. If this occurs, clear your browser cache to enable access to Ops Manager. If you want to open the REST Manager API, use the http://<MANAGER_IP>:8090/v2 URL.
