The 'Servers' page

View and manage Cmd-enabled servers; update, uninstall, or disable an agent; and edit server groups

On the ‘Servers’ page, you can view your Cmd-enabled servers, uninstall or disable the Cmd agent on a server, and manage server groups. This page covers:

Getting to the Servers page

  1. In the top-right corner, click the current project’s name to open the drop-down menu.

  2. Select Project & app settings.

  3. On the left menu, under ‘Project settings’, select Servers.

 

Servers page overview

Up top, a series of graphs show an overview of your active servers:

  • Most active servers:
    Lists servers which have had the most active sessions.

  • Servers by agent version:
    Counts servers running each version of the Cmd agent.

  • Servers by server group:
    Server counts for your biggest server groups.

 
Below the charts are two tabs:

  • Servers:
    Shows information about the servers where you’ve installed a Cmd agent.

  • Scheduled:
    Shows a summary of upcoming and previously scheduled changes to servers (i.e. agent updates).


The Servers tab. The Sessions and Commands columns contain counts of sessions and commands. To customize the columns, open the menu next to the Add server button.

Data capture and agent status:

The Data capture column shows whether monitoring is active. Possible values are:

  • ON (green) — the agent is on and the server is online;
  • ON (yellow) — the agent is on but the server has been offline < 15 mins;
  • ON (grey) — the agent is on but the server has been offline > 15 minutes;
  • PAUSED (grey) — you disabled the agent via the web app.

 

Act on multiple servers

The Servers tab. Highlighted on the left are the bulk-management actions that become available when servers are selected. Highlighted on the right are controls for filtering servers by server group or status.

To apply an action to a group of servers:

  1. To choose servers, if necessary use the filter options in the upper-right of the servers table. Then, select servers by clicking the checkboxes on the left.

  2. Choose an action from the upper-left of the servers table:

    • Edit groups: Adjust server group membership (and if only one server is selected, rename it).

    • Uninstall: Remove the agent from the selected server(s).

    • Upgrade agent - Schedule agent updates. (Only visible when an update is available and agent auto-updates are disabled.)

    • Pause/Start agent - Turn agent data capture on or off.

    • Archive - Archive selected servers.

Act on individual servers

Click the three-dot menu on the right side of a single server’s row to access the following options:

  • Pause agent/Start agent:
    Stop/Start the agent from running.

  • Delete offline data:
    Delete offline command/session data that has not yet been sent to the collector. (To assist in recovering servers after a collector outage.)

  • Uninstall Uninstall the agent from this server.

  • Run diagnostics:
    Send agent diagnostics from this server to Cmd’s logging facility.    

Server groups

The servers page also lets you manage your server groups. Server groups allow you to categorize servers based on shared characteristics (e.g., physical location, production vs. staging), and differentiate between them with reports and triggers.
