Accessing Web Monitor
You can access Web Monitor from the Forefront UAG Management console, from the Windows Start menu, from any computer located in the Forefront UAG server network, or from a remote network through a Forefront UAG portal.
To access Web Monitor
To open Web Monitor from the Forefront UAG Management console, on the Admin menu, click Web Monitor.
To open Web Monitor from the Windows Start menu, click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Forefront UAG, and then click Forefront UAG Web Monitor.
To open Web Monitor from any computer located in the Forefront UAG server network, connect using port 50002 on the Forefront UAG server. For example, if the IP address of the Forefront UAG server is 192.168.1.45, specify the following URL in the browser address bar of the computer from which you want to connect: http://192.168.1.45:50002
To access Web Monitor from a remote network through a Forefront UAG portal, publish Web Monitor by adding the Web Monitor application to the portal. After adding the application, on the Authorization tab of the Web Monitor application properties, define the users that are authorized to access Web Monitor. By default, no users are authorized.
|Web Monitor can be accessed by any user with administrator privileges on the local server or array member.|
Tips for using the Web Monitor
You should be aware of the following, when using the Web Monitor:
Whenever the time is displayed, such as in the Statistics windows, it is the time on the Forefront UAG server, not the remote user’s computer. The current time on the Forefront UAG server is displayed at the top right corner of the window; for example: Server time: 02/23/2006 17:40
To generate reports in Microsoft Office Excel format, click the Excel button. You can then use Excel to manipulate the data according to your needs; for example, to calculate the number of users that were concurrently logged on to a trunk at peak time, or to create charts that will present comparisons, patterns, and trends of system usage.
In the Current Status, Active Sessions, and Event Viewer windows, you can instantly refresh the data by clicking the Refresh button.
A lead user is the user who accessed the site. For example, when a user logs in to the site by using one set of credentials, and is then requested to enter different credentials when accessing a specific application, the lead user is the user who is logged in to the site. In unauthenticated trunks, the lead user is the first user added during the session with the site.
A user name is always displayed using the following syntax:
In tables, you can specify a sort order by clicking the column heading by which you want to sort the data.
In line charts, used in the Statistics and Monitor over time windows, you can highlight a line in the chart by clicking it in the legend. For example, clicking a trunk name highlights the chart-line representing that trunk.
You can customize some of the Web Monitor defaults, such as refresh rates, the display of graphics, and the appearance of charts.
