The main view of the ggRock Web UI is the Machines tab.
On the Machines tab, several columns display information for each Machine.
The default set of columns displayed contains the following information:
- Name: The name of the system in ggRock (and if synced to ggLeap, within ggLeap as well)
- IP: The IP address of the system as of the last time it booted to ggRock
- System Image: The current System Image assigned to a given Machine
- Game Image: The current Game Image assigned to a given Machine.
- Uptime: The time in HH:MM:SS that the system has been powered on and connected to ggRock
- Sent: The amount of data sent to the Machine by the ggRock server (typically the OS image when the Machine boots)
- Received: The amount of data received by the ggRock server from the Machine (in writebacks)
- Speed: The current transmit/receive speed to the Machine
If desired, the following column may also be added:
- GUID: A unique identifier assigned to each Machine (useful if you have duplicate entries in your Machines list, for example)
Customizing the columns displayed in the ggRock Web UI Machines tab:
1. Click the overflow menu (three vertical dots) to the left of the "Name" column.
2. Check, or un-check columns as desired to customize the Machines tab.
3. Click the "Apply" button, or, alternatively, click the "Reset" button to restore the default set if you have not already applied your customizations.
Overflow Menu (Machine Menu)
The Overflow Menu (also known as the Machine Menu) is the primary means of interacting with Machine entries in the ggRock Web UI.
To access the Overflow Menu, click the circle with three vertical dots inside located to the rightmost side of the ggRock Web UI on the row containing the Machine on which you wish to perform an operation.
Overflow Menu Items
- Shutdown: Initiates an API call to ggLeap to shut down the selected Machine
- Reboot: Initiates an API call to ggLeap to reboot the selected Machine
- Apply Writebacks: If the selected Machine is currently shut down, permits application of writebacks for the system to commit any changes made to all other systems (when they are rebooted)
- Settings: Opens the settings dialog for the selected Machine
- Delete: Deleted the selected Machine
Main Settings Dialog
(Read Only) Current IP Address of the Machine
(Read Only) Current MAC Address of the Machine
Set the system image the Machine should boot from
Set the game image that should be mounted to system on boot.
(Only if integrated with ggLeap) Set the screen resolution on a per-machine basis
(Only if integrated with ggLeap) Set the video refresh rate on a per-machine basis
Optionally, hide the selected system from the Machines tab by default
(Read Only) Network Adapter(s) detected in the Machine
(Read Only) Graphics card(s) detected in the Machine
(Read Only) CPU detected in the Machine
(Read Only) Motherboard detected in the Machine
When checked, writebacks will be persisted across reboots for the selected Machine
ggLeap Synchronization Status
Indicates the status of the ggRock-ggLeap connection
Green "gg" Circle
Indicates the connection to ggLeap is active and names, machine information, and machine settings are being synchronized.
Red "gg" Circle
Indicates the connection to ggLeap is inactive and names, machine information, and machine settings are NOT being synchronized.
Forces synchronization of names, machine information, and machine settings with ggLeap (for example, if a motherboard was replaced, etc).
Indicates license status (if inactive, a 24-hour countdown begins after which support must be contacted for remediation).
Create VM Button
Permits the creation of Virtual Machines.
Please ensure VMs are enabled.
Refer to the Virtual Machines Administration Manual for further information on VMs.
Show Hidden Button
If the "Hide The Machine" checkbox is checked for a given Machine, it will be hidden by default. Click the "Show Hidden" button to once again display hidden Machines in the Machines list. This is useful if you wish to perform tasks via the overflow menu on such Machines, or if you wish to include them in bulk operations.
Hide Hidden Button
If the "Hide The Machine" checkbox is checked for a given Machine, it will be hidden by default. If the "Show Hidden" button was clicked to hide such Machines, click the "Hide Hidden" button to once again hide them from the Machines list. Hiding hidden Machines. This is useful for test Machines, or Machines you wish to otherwise exclude from bulk operations.
At times it may be necessary to perform the same task on all systems, or on a batch of systems, in your center. Within the Machines tab of the ggRock Web UI, it is possible to place a check next to multiple systems, and therefore enact changes to all of those systems.
Bulk operations may be performed by placing a check to the left of any Machine you wish to enact changes to. This enables the display of additional features in the Machines tab.
- Edit Selected
Allows bulk editing of some settings for Machines
- Power Off Selected
(Requires ggLeap Integration) Initiates an API call to ggLeap to power off the selected Machines.
- Reboot Selected
(Requires ggLeap Integration) Initiates an API call to ggLeap to reboot the selected Machines.
- Power On Selected
Sends a Wake on Lan magic packet to the selected Machines to power them on.
