User interfaces

OneFS and IsilonSD Edge provide several interfaces for managing Isilon clusters and IsilonSD clusters.

Interface
Description
Comment
OneFS web administration interface
The browser-based OneFS web administration interface provides secure access with OneFS-supported browsers. Use this interface to view robust graphical monitoring displays and to perform cluster-management tasks.
The OneFS web administration interface uses port 8080 as its default port.
OneFS command-line interface
Run OneFS isi commands in the command-line interface to configure, monitor, and manage the cluster. Access to the command-line interface is through a secure shell (SSH) connection to any node in the cluster.
The OneFS command-line interface provides an extended standard UNIX command set for managing the cluster.
OneFS API
The OneFS application programming interface (API) is divided into two functional areas: one area enables cluster configuration, management, and monitoring functionality, and the other area enables operations on files and directories on the cluster. You can send requests to the OneFS API through a Representational State Transfer (REST) interface, which is accessed through resource URIs and standard HTTP methods.
You should have a solid understanding of HTTP/1.1 and experience writing HTTP-based client software before you implement client-based software through the OneFS API.
Node front panel
With the exception of accelerator nodes, the front panel of each node contains an LCD screen with five buttons that you can use to monitor node and cluster details.

This interface is not applicable for IsilonSD Edge.

Node status, events, cluster details, capacity, IP and MAC addresses, throughput, and drive status are available through the node front panel.
