Welcome to this article that will tell you everything you need to know about remotely controlling your fleet of UbiCast recorders on Miris Manager !
Miris Capture recorders are designed to be controlled online, so that an entire fleet spread over several sites can be managed by a remote team. From the interface, you have full control over the stations in your fleet, and can trigger all the features. Your Miris Manager allows global actions on the fleet, but this article will focus on individual station management.
Control your stations remotely
Once you have logged in to your Miris Manager account, you will be taken to the home page of the platform, where your fleet is displayed :
Select the station you want to control and click on its block (or name if you chose to display "In lines").
This will take you to the customized control interface of the selected recorder. Here you will find most of the information present in the general display of the fleet :
At the bottom of the page, you have three options :
- The "Link to control frame" sends you to the direct online control interface of your Miris Capture solution, outside the Miris Manager. This can be useful if you want to be able to work on the station without a disturbing graphical element.
- The "Link to control page with dedicated authentication" will send you to a specific page for authentication through your LDAP directory. This option is for administrators, and can be ignored by standard users. If you are an administrator, please refer to the Miris Manager LDAP support documentation.
- The "Link to latest screenshot" can be disregarded, as it is a deprecated function used only for previous solutions
Once in this part of the interface, you have full control of the machine's functions. Just click on the features to access them, such as "Record", "Publish", or "Settings", the latter giving you access to all the settings and configurations of the station. To find out more about the features of the Miris Capture solutions, see the relevant articles in the dedicated section (Under construction, available soon !)
But this direct access to the station is only one of the possibilities offered by Miris Manager. Other functions are available, including those of the "Planned Commands" tab, which we will not detail in this article, but which allows, as its name indicates, to schedule automated actions of the machine, such as recordings. Find out all you need to know about this feature in the articles "Schedule automatic events with Miris Manager" and "Scheduled recordings in Miris Manager".
The other tabs present different possibilities that we will describe now.
Commands, events and messages
The Miris Manager control interface of your station has several other tabs besides remote control. The first one, "Commands", allows you to give direct commands to the machine without going through the control interface.
It is possible to :
- Ping the station to get quick information about the machine's connectivity
- Shut down, reboot or upgrade the system
- Trigger a wake-on-lan (Only on a local Miris Manager)
- Start or stop a recording
- Refresh the list of available profiles
The following tab, "Commands monitoring", allows you to find all the commands sent to the system. You can sort them by period and/or by type of command. Hovering over one of the commands in the list gives access to the corresponding command log.
Sorting out by command category also makes it easy to refine searches :
This function is very useful for tracing machine actions and communicating information to support.
The next tab, "Events monitoring", allows you to track events triggered from Miris Manager, and even place event listeners that alerts you when an event of the chosen category is triggered. As with the "Command monitoring" feature, you can filter by period, but also by name. And here again, hovering over one of the events gives access to the corresponding log :
Please note that the "Command monitoring" and "Events monitoring" features are also available for the whole fleet :
Finally, the last tab, "Messages", lists all the messages and alerts sent by the station, including the day and exact time of sending. This can also be useful for tracing the origin of an error. You can choose to keep, archive, or delete messages.
There are other general functions to be able to manage your whole fleet remotely, which you can find in detail in the article "Manage your fleet remotely with Miris Manager".
This article is now over, but Miris Manager and UbiCast solutions still offer many possibilities. Explore and manipulate our systems to discover them !
And of course, never hesitate to refer to the articles in the dedicated section of our documentation, where you will find all the details on how to use Miris Manager. We wish you a pleasant use of our solutions !
