Fleet Manager Dashboard

Adding Iguana Instances

The Fleet Manager Dashboard makes it easy to start monitoring your existing Iguana instances right away:

  1. Make sure you are on the Dashboard, if not then click Iguana Servers in the menu bar:
    Iguana servers fleet manager menu bar

    Note: You can view the Fleet Manager Dashboard without logging in — this enables high level monitoring for all users.

    You will need to login when you add servers, view usage details, and view the logs page or the settings page.

  2. Click the green Add Existing Instance button in the bottom right corner:
    fleet manager add server
  3. Enter the Iguana Server credentials:
    1. The URL for the Iguana instance.
    2. The Iguana Server Admin user password.
    3. And press Fetch Server Details:
      fleet manager register server
    4. The Server Name to display in the Dashboard.
      Note: This is for display only and can be changed.
    5. Choose the Server Type.
    6. And press Add Instance:
      fleet manager add server
  4. Your new Iguana instance should now appear in the Fleet Manager dashboard, like this:
    fleet manager add server

Editing and Removing Iguana Instances [top]

You can use the Actions menu in the Dashboard to update details or remove a registered Iguana instance.

  1. Select (mouse over) the Iguana instance you want to edit to display the Options menu:
    fleet manager actions menu
  2. Update display details: Use the Edit Server Details option:

    This allows you to update the Dashboard display name and server type for a registered Iguana server. This can be helpful if you want to change a server name to be more descriptive, or perhaps you listed a Development server as Production by mistake. Changing the display information has no effect the registered Iguana instance — it only changes what you see in the Dashboard.

  3. Update Iguana connection information: Use the Update Connection Info option:

    This allows you to change the URL+port and the password for a registered Iguana server. This is helpful as these are occasionally subject to change — in particular the password which can change on a regular basis.

  4. Unregister the Iguana server: Use the Remove option:

    This will unregister the specified server from the Fleet Manager and it will no longer be visible in the the Dashboard. No further log messages will be imported — but all messages imported previously will remain in the database. Deleted servers are not shown, by default, in the Global Logs — but they can be viewed by checking “Show Removed Servers”. If you re-register the same server (same Iguana ID) any existing logs in the database will be recognized as belonging to the re-registered server.
