Devices

Page Layout

This page shows the current devices exporting events to the Fluency Server.

Each device must be manually added, with the IP address of the exporting device. For devices with entries, their exporting status will be monitored.

NOTE: When Fluency accepts log exports from another device, the assumption is that the device will send data at a constant rate, and not sporadically.

Additionally, an internal service in Fluency will monitor this status and generate notifications. A notification will trigger when Fluency does not receive data from a listed device for more than 1 hour.

There are other notifications (of varying severity), at the 4-hour and the 24-hour mark. If another notification for the same device is not generated after the initial 1-hour notification, then it can be assumed that the device resumed sending data to Fluency within 4 hours.

These notifications can be disabled by contacting Fluency support.

Fluency will also collected imported data for devices that are not listed on the above table. These devices, along with their source IP address (as seen by Fluency) can be found on the Histogram Tab.

Adding a Device

Add Device

On this page, there are fields for name, description, IP, hostname, and device type.

Once a device is added and associated with an IP address, the device will appear on the histogram with its associated name. Otherwise, the device’s IP address will appear on the histogram.

This will also allow the device status to be displayed on the Devices page. The device’s status is represented by a status light with three colors: green, yellow, and red. A green light indicates that the device is currently working. A yellow light indicates that the device has been offline; hovering over it will show how long it has been since the device was online. A red line indicates that the device is offline.

Histogram

The event histogram page will show all the devices that export data to Fluency. If these devices are not configured, they will appear on the histogram as their IP addresses.

The histogram will fail to load if there is no data for the histogram. This occurs when no data has been received in the last 7 days.
