A node represents an IceGrid node process registered with the IceGrid registry.
On this page:
A node can be either up () or down ( ). A "down" node is shown only when it is described by an application deployed on this IceGrid registry.
A node provides the following actions, from its contextual menu and from the
Tools > Node menu:
- Retrieve Ice log
Retrieve the log messages sent to the IceGrid node's logger into an Ice Log Dialog. The Ice Log Dialog attaches a remote logger to the node's logger.
- Retrieve stdout
Retrieve the IceGrid node's stdout into a Log File Dialog. This retrieval succeeds only when the node's stdout output has been redirected to a file using the
- Retrieve stderr

You cannot restart an IceGrid node from IceGrid Admin.
The Node Properties panel shows:
The name of the host on which the IceGrid node process is running.
- Operating System
The operating system name and version of the host on which the IceGrid node process is running.
- Machine Type
The type of CPUs and the number of CPU threads of the host on which the IceGrid node process is running. For example, a computer with a dual-core CPU and 2 "hyper threads" per core will show 4 CPU threads.
- CPU Usage (Windows) or Load Average (Linux/Unix)
On Windows, shows the percentage of CPU utilization in the past 1, 5, and 15 minutes. On Linux/Unix, shows the load-average in the past 1, 5 and 15 minutes. These values are retrieved when the Node Properties panel is displayed. Click on the Refresh button to retrieve the latest values.
- Load Factor
Shows the load factor defined by each application using this node.
A registry node can only have two types of children:
- Regular Server
- IceBox Server
