Article Summary

As a global administrator, you can manage the servers on which CTERA Portal is installed.

CTERA Portal servers are Tomcat servers (Apace Tomcat) running on CentOS Linux machines. The database used by the CTERA Portal is a PostgreSQL database.

You can use third-party tools to monitor the tomcat servers and portal database. For example, Nagios,, provides complete monitoring of CentOS Linux operating systems, including operating system metrics, service state, process state, and file system usage. To monitor the database you can use a tool such as Open PostgreSQL Monitoring (OPM).


For details about adding servers, refer to the installation documentation for your environment.

CTERA monitoring is available using external tools. CTERA officially supports Datadog and Nagios monitoring systems.
