Configuring the Index Server for Log Monitoring

To perform searches on your data using the monitoring application in the Web Console, you must configure an Index Server. The Index Server indexes the data that is defined in a monitoring policy.

Best Practice: If you have a high volume of files that you need to index, create and configure another Index Server to avoid high processing loads on a single engine.

Before You Begin


Perform one of the following tasks:

  • If you already have an Index Server configured in your CommCell environment, you can add the Log Monitoring role to the Index Server to support searches for the monitoring application.

    For instructions, see Changing Roles Configured on an Index Server.

  • If you have not created an Index Server or want to create a new Index Server for the monitoring application, add an Index Server in your CommCell Console and then add the Log Monitoring role to the Index Server.

    For instructions, see Adding an Index Server Entity to Your CommCell Environment.


The Index Server will index the data to support searches on your data from the Web Console.
