Viewing Client Connection Status

Foglight® tracks connections to the Management Server for security purposes. The Connection Status dashboard lists browsers that are connected to the server. For each browser instance, the list shows the client’s IP address, login time, request name, and request time.

To access the Connection Status dashboard, from the Administration dashboard, in the Server column, click Connections.

For more information, see View the host connection status.

Viewing Audited Entries

Viewing Configuration Details

Foglight® configuration settings include the basic environment parameters for host and port settings, virtual memory, server federation, and many others. Other types of settings reflect the version and patch level of various components such as the Management Server, WCF, and JVM versions; these settings cannot be changed unless you choose to upgrade to a later version of Foglight. More display-only settings indicate the OS of the computer on which the Management Server is installed, and its patch level.

The configuration values are set in the server.config file and the Foglight registry. For example, the database settings are typically set in server.config, while global email settings are specified in the Foglight registry. Editing the configuration file requires a restart of the Management Server in order for these changes to take effect. Changes to the Foglight registry do not require a system restart.

Foglight configuration settings can be viewed using the Management Server Configuration dashboard. To access this dashboard, from the navigation panel, click Dashboards > Administration > Setup > Management Server Configuration.

Enabling Usage Feedback

The Foglight® Management Server can collect usage data about your environment and send it to Quest to improve support response. This data helps with identifying potential bottlenecks, improving the overall Management Server performance and server versions going forward.

The collected usage data contains information about the visited dashboards, unique ID of management server, server version, along with configuration details. It does not identify any users or provide additional information about their actions in the user interface. For additional information about the overall protection of user-related data, see the Security and Compliance Guide.

This feature may be enabled by default. To turn it off, click Disable on the Automatic Communication with Quest dashboard. To access this dashboard, from the Administration dashboard, in the Support column, click Support Notifications.
