Chapter 9. Using the AMQ Interconnect web console to monitor the router network

You can use the AMQ Interconnect web console to monitor the status and performance of your router network. By default, when you create a router deployment, the AMQ Interconnect Operator generates the credentials to access the console and stores them in a Secret.

Procedure

  1. In OpenShift, switch to NetworkingRoutes, and click the console Route.

    The web console opens in a new tab.

  2. To connect to the web console, complete the following fields:

    Port
    Enter 443.
    User name

    Enter the user name.

    To find the user name and password for accessing the web console, navigate to WorkloadsSecrets. The Secret containing the web console credentials is called <application-name>-users (for example, router-mesh-users).

    The syntax for the user name is <user>@<domain> (the domain is the OpenShift application name, which is the name of the Custom Resource that describes the router deployment). For example, guest@router-mesh.

    Password
    Enter the password defined in the <application-name>-users Secret.
  3. Click Connect.

    The Routers page is displayed showing all of the routers in the router network.

  4. Use the web console tabs to monitor the router network.
