Viewing vCMP Guest Status

About guest status

As a vCMP® host administrator, you can log into the vCMP host and view status information about each guest. Using the BIG-IP® Configuration utility or the Traffic Management Shell (tmsh), you can view this information in two forms:

  • A summary of information for all guests on the vCMP system.
  • Detailed information about a specific guest, such as software status, resource provisioning, and high availability (HA) status for specific services running on the guest.

Viewing summary status for all guests

vCMP ® administrators can view guest summary information while logged into the vCMP host. The vCMP system displays this information on a single screen of the BIG-IP® Configuration utility for all guests on the vCMP system. The summary information consists of:

  • Guest names.
  • The product and version number of the currently-active software volume per guest.
  • A list of the specific BIG-IP modules provisioned per guest.
  • Per-slot command-line interface prompt status. This status consists of the slot numbers for clustered guests, status color, a slot designation of P (primary) or S (secondary), and high availability (HA) status.
  • HA failure status. This status indicates an HA failure on the guest, and if applicable, a link to the HA Failure screen for the guest.
On the Main tab, click vCMP > Guest Status .
For example, the following shows a list of sample guests with summary information.

Viewing HA failure status

From the vCMP® host, you perform this task to view any high availability (HA) failures pertaining to services running on the guest. For example, you can view whether the cluster-time-sync feature within the CLUSTERED service has failed. You can also view the specific action that the BIG-IP system took when the failure occurred, such as rebooting the system on the relevant slot.

  1. On the Main tab, click vCMP > Guest List .
    This displays a list of guests on the system.
  2. In the Name column, click the name of the guest that you want to view.
