Product Overview

Oracle’s Sun ZFS Appliance Monitor (appliance monitor) is a read-only extension of the Sun ZFS Storage Appliance (appliance) browser user interface (BUI). Leveraging the existing XML-RPC framework on the appliance, it can query user-configured appliances and present the same information as the BUI in a rich, convenient, and scalable interface. This information includes:

The appliance monitor runs on Apple iOS 5 and is designed for the iPhone, which provides for the greatest mobility. Management of the appliance, such as creating shares and pools, enabling/disabling services, are not features of the appliance monitor. With such a small form-factor, we want to avoid any accidental destruction of important information, or loss of service.

All mobile devices have a feature to enable a passcode on the mobile device, preventing unwanted users from accessing the application. All communication that takes places between the appliance monitor and a server is done through the use of Secure Socket Layer (SSL).
