Configure menu - Settings

Post by KelAuth »

The Settings menu will eventually be removed)

Nickname: User can set a nickname which is seen in the dashboard to help quickly identify this particular agent.
Minimum Outage: This allows the user to see the minimum outages which will be displayed in the dashboard. This option is for convenience in certain situations but most will want to see all outages no matter what length. Note that even if outages are not being shown in the reports, they are still added to the reports and accumulate. The agent is always reporting any and all outages and 'hiding' by using the Minimum outage settings may cause someone to overlook important issues.

Enable DDNS: Dynamic DNS or DDNS, offers an easy to remember name for the agent. When enabling DDNS, the URL generated will show in the dashboard in the Links section. Static IPs can cost around $10 to $15 per month but as a Outages.io member, DDNS is included.

DDNS name: The default DDNS name is the agent ID number plus a domain name. Ie, 12955.domain.com. User can set a custom name if it is available.

Enable data usage: Alpha code being tested to allow the agent to report on its bandwidth and data usage. This option is still in development and may or may not show in the possible settings.
