Meshlium Manager System provides an easy way to monitor Meshlium’s mesh networks. Each Meshlium can configure its manager to send custom data to a central server, and the interval this data will be sent. Even more, the web manager let you custom which data will send to central server. Central server may be any Meshlium, and different Meshlium may have configured different central servers.
Configure this feature is as simple as moving to Remote Server tab. Once there two sub menus will be displayed, sub menu Send Data and Acquired Data. The Send Data sub menu configures the meshlium behaviour to send data to a central server, and which data should be sent.
To configure sending data to a central server, we must configure ip addresses of the Meshlium that will role as central server. We may configure also a sending interval from 1 minute to 59 minutes. Whit that simple configuration, Meshlium will send information to the selected ip each interval. Just doing so won’t make our Meshlium send any data to central server because no information has been selected already, sending data must be allowed too. Only selected information will be sent to central server, so that each Meshlium may work with different behaviours for minimizing the bandwidth consumption or security tasks. The manager will gather all the system information that has been selected to send to central server and send it by itself.
Acquired data sub menu configure the behaviour of the manager when receiving info from other Meshliums. If it is configured to receive data, it will store data information. In Acquired data sub menu is possible to have an overview of all the information received from other Meshliums.
With the Meshlium API is possible parse and manage information stored from Meshliums. It uses this information to display mesh info of each node and interconnection within mesh network.
But any other application in Meshlium or any Plugin for the manager may use this information, without having to worry about mesh topology, gathering system information and sending or receiving system information to any other Meshlium in the net, the web mnanager already do it itself.
This is a real Meshlium’s received data file.
