Accessing and Navigating the Web Interface - AWS Elemental Delta

This is version 2.3 of the AWS Elemental Delta documentation. This is the latest version. For prior versions, see the Previous Versions section of AWS Elemental Delta Documentation.

Accessing and Navigating the Web Interface

At your workstation, open a web browser and enter the IP address and port (8080) of the node that is currently the leader or that is designated as the leader (for a cluster that has not yet been configured).

During configuration, the address you enter is the IP address of the individual node. (Later on, when AWS Elemental Delta is running, you typically access the web interface through the ingest virtual IP address that you set up during this configuration procedure.)

For example http://10.24.34.2:8080.

The web interface appears. The two screens used for configuration are the Node screen and the Settings screen.

Nodes Screen

The Nodes screen provides information about the cluster, such as what nodes make up the cluster.

The following graphic depicts an example Nodes screen. Important web elements are numbered and described in the table.
