Monitoring waves, runbooks, and jobs

Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.

To help you determine what is taking place when running jobs against your waves, Velostrata provides two ways to monitor your progress: monitoring wave status and viewing logs.

Monitoring wave status

The Last Job (Status) column on the Waves screen indicates the phase and status of the wave. This screen updates every five seconds.

The Waves screen when a job has been initiated, clicking the eye, the last icon on the right shows more detail

Clicking on the row's value in the Status column shows the status of all VMs from that job.

Monitoring each VM in a job

To monitor the live status of the VMs in a wave, click the icon in the Monitor column of that wave.

Each row represents a VM that is part of the wave and describes that VM's status. You can select a row and then perform a Start, Stop, or Reboot.

Viewing a wave's history

To view the history of all jobs run on a wave, click in the Jobs column of the desired wave. On the Jobs screen, you can see the job history for that wave and whether it's currently running.

Viewing job status details

The job status details screen

To view status of specific job details, click the Status column cell on the relevant job status link to see the list of VMs in the job and their status.

Viewing job log details

To view the log for a job, click the eye icon in that job's row. Viewing the log gives detailed insight into exactly what is taking place.

You can simplify scanning the log by collapsing unneeded sections, or you can click the Details icon to see more information.
