Network settings

You can access the Foglight Experience Monitor network configuration page by clicking Configure > Appliance > Network Settings. After you are finishing configuring the settings, click Apply.

For more information, see these topics:

Foglight

Use the Foglight section of the Network Settings page to establish how Foglight Experience Monitor communicates with the Foglight Management Server and Foglight Experience Viewer.

Users of the Foglight Management Server browser interface have the ability to navigate into the Foglight Experience Monitor web console to view reports containing metrics and information that is not available in the Foglight Management Server browser interface. Those users will be prompted for a login name and password when they enter the Foglight Experience Monitor web console, unless they have enabled “single sign-on with FxM”.

To enable the “single sign-on with FxM” feature, enter the IP address of the Foglight Management Server in the Foglight Server IP box on this page. If there is more than one Foglight Management Server that is receiving metrics from this appliance, each IP address should be entered in this box, separated by a comma.

In the Foglight Server Port box, type the port that the Foglight Management Server uses for access to its browser interface. The default port value is 8080.

In the FxV Server IP box, type the IP address of the Foglight Experience Viewer Server that you want to link to this appliance.

In the FxV Server Port box, type the port that the Foglight Experience Viewer Server uses. This value should always be set to default HTTP port value (80 or 7630).

Mail

Use the Mail section of the Network Settings page to establish how Foglight Experience Monitor sends email notifications and distributes reports.

In the Mail Server IP box, type the IP address of an SMTP mail server that the appliance can use to send email notifications. Email notifications can be assigned as actions that occur when an alarm is triggered. For more information about email notifications, see “Sending email to a group” in the Foglight Experience Monitor User Guide.

Reports can be configured for distribution to a group of email address. For more information about report distribution, see “Distributing report sets” in the Foglight Experience Monitor User Guide.

In the Email “from” field box, type the full email address of the sender that the appliance uses to send email notifications, for example fxmalarm@quest.com. When users receive email notifications as a result of an alarm, the “from” field appearing in the email message is the string you enter in this box. For more information, see User account management.

Network Time Servers (NTP)

In the NTP Server boxes, enter the IP addresses of up to three Network Time Protocol (NTP) servers. This ensures that the system clock on the appliance accurately reflects the current time. This is especially important for multi-appliance clusters. For more information on NTP including a list of publicly accessible time servers, see http://www.ntp.org.
