Configure Physical Nodes

The Physical Nodes page displays a list of physical nodes and clusters. It provides information about a device’s cluster ID, role, model, connection status, device status, and many other details.

To access physical nodes attached to an instance of GigaVUE-FM, log into GigaVUE-FM. On the left navigation pane, click on and under Physical, select Nodes to view all the physical nodes and clusters managed by GigaVUE-FM.

The Physical Nodes page displays the following information:

Note:  H Series can cluster with TA Series nodes, but G Series nodes can only cluster (stack) with other G Series nodes.

Box Id

The box Identifier of the node.

SW Version

The version number of GigaVUE-FM.


The status of the physical node or Advanced Features license.

Device Status

The current health status of the GigaVUE node or cluster.

To know about how the device health status is computed, refer to Node Health Status.

Note:  You can monitor the health status of the device by enabling the SNMP notifications. For more information on configuring the email notifications, refer to the “Notifications” section in the GigaVUE Administration Guide.

Task Status

The status of the upgrade process. When the upgrade process is in progress, the task status displays the number of steps completed successfully out of the total number of steps to be completed. For example, upgrade: step (2/5) Image Fetch Complete.

Once the upgrade process is complete, the upgrade status is displayed as Upgrade Success or Upgrade Failure.

Connection Status

The status of the device discovery. The status displayed can be one of Authentication Failed, Connection Failed, or OK.

Last Connected Time

The timestamp when the physical node or cluster was last connected.



The tag or site name and value associated to the physical node or cluster.

The tag names associated to the physical node or cluster are displayed as separate columns.Under the tag or site name, the respective tag or site value is displayed.


Note:  The columns in the Physical Nodes page can be customized based on the type of content you want to view in the table. For customizing the columns, refer to Table View Customization.

Changes made to the cluster through the CLI are reflected in GigaVUE-FM when it synchronizes with the cluster, which is typically every 5 minutes.

If the latest configuration data is not retrieved from the cluster for more than 30 minutes, a warning is displayed in the cluster Overview page indicating the last time GigaVUE-FM successfully synchronized with the cluster.

To view the last synchronized status, click the cluster and view the status at the top of the Overview page.
