The comprehensive GridGain Control Center management and developer tool for GridGain and Apache Ignite is available in two versions. The free online GridGain Control Center is for managing or developing on any size GridGain or Ignite environment. The on-premises GridGain Control Center is a commercial product for production GridGain or Ignite environments. A free downloadable version can be used to develop on up to two GridGain or Ignite nodes and to trial all the features of the commercial version for production management. GridGain 8.7+ and Apache Ignite 2.8+ are supported - Ignite users must install the Control Center Agent, available for free on on the GridGain Downloads page.

The flexible, user-configurable Control Center dashboard provides tools for managing cluster behavior and a visual view of the cluster status. Any of 200+ OpenCensus-based metrics can be monitored in the drag-and-drop interface. Chart, graph, and heat map visualization options make it simple to understand the real-time status of your clusters.

Active tracing based on the OpenCensus standard, which visualizes API calls as they execute across the cluster nodes, is supported to improve your understanding of GridGain and Ignite processes and accelerates root cause analysis. Stack traces, execution timings, thread details, logs and more are viewable in Control Center.


Web Console

The GridGain Web Console includes a configuration wizard for the Apache Ignite and the GridGain in-memory computing platforms. A downloadable package for on-premises installation of the Web Console is available on the GridGain Downloads page.

You can use the Web Console to create and download cluster configuration files for your environment. A multi-step wizard creates the configuration files, which helps you specify the important configuration parameters for your infrastructure. The Web Console can automatically import the database schema from any RDBMS to accelerate the configuration process.
