Preference Menu Options

Preference Menu Option
Description
Mouse Sync on Mode Change (enabled by default)
Mouse Sync on Mode Change is enabled by default.
When enabled (that is, when the check box is selected), the remote mouse and local mouse will automatically sync upon switching between full-control mode and view-only mode.
Language
English is the default language for the virtual keyboard.
You can change the language of the virtual keyboard by 1) choosing another language from the Language list box, and 2) clicking OK.

Note - The Language option on both the host server operating system and the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console Plus (Preference menu) must match.

Bandwidth
Unlimited is the default Bandwidth setting.
You can change the Bandwidth setting by 1) choosing another option from the Bandwidth list box, and 2) clicking OK.

Note - The Bandwidth option affects the data transfer rate between the local server and the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console Plus client.

Bandwidth and Low Bandwidth Usage Considerations
  • Lowering the Bandwidth and the Low Bandwidth rate impacts both the video redirection quality and the mouse movement.

  • If a Matrox driver is detected on the host server, and if the Bandwidth default value is changed, there is no need to change the Low Bandwidth default value.

  • If a Matrox graphic driver is not detected on the host server, and if the Bandwidth rate is changed to any value other than Unlimited, the default value for Low Bandwidth must be changed to either 3 bpp (bits per pixel) or 8 bpp to resolve any problems with the mouse movement.

Low Bandwidth
Note: The Low Bandwidth Preference menu option is available in graphic mode only.
16 bpp is the default Low Bandwidth setting.
You can modify the Low Bandwidth setting by 1) choosing another option from the Low Bandwidth list box, and 2) clicking OK.
Global Logging
Console and Log File is the default Global Logging setting. When this default option is enabled, event messages are printed directly to the Java Console and the Console Log File.
You can modify the Global Logging target by 1) choosing another option from the Global Logging list box, and 2) clicking OK.

Note - Choosing None will disable event logging for the Oracle ILOM Remote System Console Plus.

Logging Level
Error is the default Logging Level setting.
The Error Logging Level represents only the highest level of reported errors and generates the fewest event messages in the log file. The Debug Logging Level captures all events and generates the most event messages in the log file.
You can modify the Logging Level option by 1) choosing another option from the Logging Level list box, and 2) clicking OK.
Console Log File
The Console Log File is saved to your home directory by default.
Click the Browse button to change the location for saving the log file, and then click OK in the Preference dialog box.
