The Node Administration tab is used to perform general node administration tasks.

The parameters and labels may vary slightly depending on the product installed on the node.

Details section

The Details section parameters are as follows:

Parameter

Description

Name

The node name that will be listed in the Nodes list in the left hand pane of the Workbench. It will also be displayed in the Node details window when the node is selected from the Nodes list.
The node name can be any meaningful name to help identify the node. It can have up to 64 characters and include letters, numbers, and the underscore character. Spaces are allowed.
The node name, Host name and TR50 thing key parameters are separate items.
The node name will be New Node or New Gateway when a product is initially installed.

Version

The application version is a text parameter that can have any meaningful value, for example indicating the application version (different from the product version) that is on the node.

Description

A text parameter that can have any meaningful description of the node, its application or its function. It will also be displayed in the Node details window when the node is selected from the Nodes list.


Select the Save Details button to save any changes to the parameters.

Node Information section

The Node Information section displays information about the node. The parameters and labels may vary slightly depending on the product installed on the node.
The Node Information section parameters are as follows:

Parameter

Description

  • MAC Address
  • Serial Number
  • SVP Number

A unique hardware identifier. This can be a(n):

  • MAC address associated with a network interface
  • Serial number
  • ICCID associated with a cellular SIM card
  • IMEI associated with a cellular modem
  • Linux ID for Linux based gateways
  • Linux GUID for Linux based gateways that have dmi support from the BIOS
  • SVP number


This unique hardware identifier is used:

Software Release Level

The product version number and build number.

Memory Utilization

The amount of memory used, displayed in a MByte value and a percentage. Depending on the product installed, the percentage may be the system's runtime use of the available memory when the runtime was started or the total use of all processes of the total operating system memory. For more information on the memory utilization, see Parts of the Workbench window.

CPU Utilization

The percentage of CPU cycles being used.

Disk Utilization

The amount of disk space used, displayed in a MByte value and a percentage used of the total disk space.

For more information on the memory utilization, see Parts of the Workbench window.

Troubleshooting node resource utilization problems

The values displayed for memory, CPU, and disk utilization give a general indication of a node's resource usage. This information is product and platform (operating system and hardware) specific, the parameters and values can be used during application development, verification and monitoring. The general rule is that the larger the application, in terms of projects, triggers, devices, transports, listeners, etc, then the greater the use of the node's resources. For more information, see Troubleshooting node resource utilization problems.

Update Firmware

The Update Firmware button will display a file dialog window, prompting for the location of a product update (.DWU) file. This reference to firmware is for the gateway product only, and not for the operating system or hardware firmware. For more information, see Updating products.

Some products do not have a firmware update feature and rely on a complete product installation. For more information, see Installing product software.

Restart

The Restart button is used to restart the runtime components or, for some products, reboot the node's operating system.

The Workbench will be temporarily disconnected from the node while it is restarting.

Some products do not support a restart feature and the node must be manually powered off and then back on.
