Panzura Data Services Dashboard

This guide explains the Panzura Data Services Dashboard, and the metrics and statuses displayed on it.

When you log in to Data Services, you'll land on the Dashboard.

It's designed to provide you with high level metrics on Data Services data intake, as well as a Target List, as an inventory of the storage endpoints which are registered to Data Services, and their corresponding summary status and monitoring link.

Dashboard: Metrics

The Data Services Dashboard provides users with the following two metrics:

  • Audit Records Indexed which is the number of the audit logs that the Data Services has received and indexed. Number of the audit logs are provided both per CloudFS Node, and the total sum of the account for all its Nodes.
  • Indexed Metadata, which shows the total number of metadata recorders, including files, folders and snapshots, which are ingested and indexed and available for the Search service

The following picture shows the Data Services Dashboard. The Dashboard's metrics are at the top, and the Target List is at the bottom.

Dashboard: Target List

The dashboard presents users with an inventory of CloudFS and associated nodes, as well as Open NFS/SMB plugins, and the summary of their operational status for a high level monitoring. This target list includes all the plugins for the nodes which are registered on Data Service, and presents the following information for each of them:


  • Target: the CloudFS Node or Open NFS/SMB plugin name
  • Node Type: which type of CloudFS Nodes is this. The Master, Subordinate or HA
  • HA Status: what is the High Availability status and pairing of the node
  • Plugin Version: which version of the Data Services plugin is installed on the node
  • CloudFS Version: which version of CloudFS is installed on the node
  • Last Scan: which is the timestamp for the last time the Node have been scanned for metadata
  • Next Scan: which is the timestamp for the next scheduled metadata scanning the Node
  • Status: the operational status of the Node with regard to their communications with the Data Services. 
    • Running: communication between Data Services and the node is normal
    • Disconnected: no communication between Data Services and the node
  • Scanning: node is currently being scanned by Data Services
  • Indexing: which shows whether the nodes’ data are being indexed at the moment

Operations: this dropdown menu is in the furthest-right column and contains the following two options for nodes:

  • Pulse: takes users to Pulse for the selected Node
  • Configurations: allows users to configure a node to gather audit data, ingest metadata or delete indexes for a node.

Adding Targets:

A node will appear in the target list once it's registered on your account. 

To register a new node, navigate to your account management dashboard, accessible by clicking the icon at top right of your screen, and click Add Target.

Select CloudFS node or open NFS/SMB node as appropriate, and follow the instructions presented.

Only your CloudFS master node needs to be registered. Data Services will automatically detect any additional nodes added to your CloudFS deployment.

Removing Targets:

To remove a target from the target list, select Configurations from the operations menu for the appropriate target, then toggle Delete Indexes to on.

The Delete Indexes option is only visible once the target has been disconnected from Data Services for over 30 days. 

Once the indexes have been deleted, the target will be removed from the list.
