Web Console Components

Web Console Server

Web Console Server is a web-server that provides browser-based user interface for monitoring, managing and querying a running cluster.

Web Agent

Web Agent is a standalone Java application that establishes a connection between a GridGain or Apache Ignite Cluster and the Web Console server. Web Agent communicates with the cluster nodes via a REST interface and connects to the Web Console server via a web-socket.

Here are some of the functions of Web Agent:

  • Proxy between Web Console and GridGain or Ignite cluster for SQL queries execution.

    wc agent cluster
  • Proxy between Web Console and an RDBMS for database schema metadata collection. Refer to the RDBMS Integration section for more details.
