Version and startup information
The first line of text on the page will look similar to this:
EZproxy 6.1.6 GA [SOURCE:6.0.8] [Windows] [2015-10-30T13:03:00Z] started at 2015-07-17 16:15:23
This information gives you the EZproxy version number currently running on your server, the last time the server was able to validate the license, and the last time EZproxy was started.
The Options line provides additional customization of the Server Status page. Select the option and click Update to enable it.
|Show "From" hostnames||Updates From column of Sessions table with user's hostname instead of IP address.|
|Include extended information||Shows additional processing directives associated with the database stanzas in config.txt, in the Databases table.|
|Enable Sorting||Allows ascending or descending column sorting for the Sessions and Login ports tables.|
To jump to a section of the page, click the blue hyperlink.
This table shows any currently logged-in user. It is useful when a user has logged in multiple times. The table will allow you to view the multiple sessions associated with a single user. Selecting a user from this table will allow you to terminate all sessions associated with a user.
|Username||The username used to log in and begin a session.|
|Number of Sessions||The number of sessions active for a user.|
|Longest Session (minutes)||The longest active session in minutes.|
This table shows any currently open EZproxy sessions. The information in your table will vary depending on options configured in config.txt. By default the table will contain the following columns:
|Session||A unique ID generated for every new session a user begins.|
|Username||The username used to log in and begin a session.|
|Fromv||The IP address from which the user connected. Selecting the Show "From" hostnames option will change the IP address to the user's hostname.|
|Created||The date and time that the session began.|
|Accessed||The date and time the session was last accessed.|
|Location (optional)||If the Location directive is configured, you will see the location associated with the session's IP address.|
This table shows all the databases defined in your config.txt file. Configurations are grouped by index number, with an index for each stanza and the related directives for the given resource. New indices are created in config.txt with the addition of a new Title directive statement. Any directive statements that do not correspond to a Title statement will be added to the preceding database stanza.
|Index||The number assigned to the database by EZproxy for processing. This is based on the stanza's position in config.txt.|
|Database||This is taken from the Title line of a database stanza.|
|Hosts||The number of unique hosts and domains configured and accessed with a particular database stanza. For example if you have a Database titled Research Database with separate host lines configured for the URLS http://www.researchdb.com and http://www.researchdatabase.com, if a user visits both of these URLs, your Databases table will show two Hosts for that Database.|
|Domains||All of the Host, Domain, HJ, and DJ directives configured for a given stanza. If you see statements that are not related to the Database, check your config.txt file and add Title statements to separate the Domains of different resources.|
|URL||The URL given in the URL directive statement of the database stanza. The hyperlinked URL contains the proxy prefix and the target URL, and clicking will take you to the proxied URL.|
This table provides information about the login ports you have configured for use with EZproxy.
|Interface||The interface that the given port should listen on for incoming requests.|
|SSL||Y if the port is configured for SSL; N if the port is not configured for SSL.|
|Port||A port number configured with the above settings for use with EZproxy.|
This table shows details from the ezproxy.hst file.
|SSL||Y if the host is configured for SSL; N if the host is not configured for SSL.|
|My Port||The port number on your server used by EZproxy to access the host.|
|Database index||The database stanza with which the host is associated.|
|Host||The hostname corresponds to the given characteristics and access information.|
|Created||The date and time a user first attempted to access the host.|
|Accessed||The date and time the host was last successfully accessed on the given port.|
|Counts||The number of times the host was successfully accessed on the given port.|
|Referenced||The date and time a user last attempted to access the host (this was not necessarily a successful attempt).|
|Counts||The number of times users attempted to access the host (these are not necessarily successful attempts).|
This section allows you to perform routine maintenance on your EZproxy installation to ensure that it runs correctly and has sufficient hosts available to proxy resources. Host maintenance can be done at any time. Removing hosts does not modify the config.txt file. It only removes a host from the ezproxy.hst file. The next time a user attempts to access a resource, it will be added back to the ezproxy.hst.
Four options may appear depending on your EZproxy usage.
|No action||Does nothing.|
|Remove # orphaned hosts that have !!! database indexes (requires EZproxy restart)||Cleans up the host file by deleting hosts that are no longer in the config.txt file or may have changed hostnames. This will reduce the number of virtual hosts created on your EZproxy server. This may be necessary if you receive a MaxVirtual Hosts error.|
|Remove # hosts that have not been used in over 30 days (requires EZproxy restart)||Cleans up the host file by deleting hosts that no user has attempted to access in the past 30 days. This will free up hosts that are no longer be used by a particular resource so they can be used to proxy other resources. This may be necessary if you receive a MaxVirtual Hosts error.|
|Reset accessed and referenced dates and counts of all hosts (no restart required)||Resets the access and reference date counts to (never) and 0. Doing this on a regular basis can help EZproxy administrators to identify how often certain resources are used during a given period of time. Once this information is reset, it cannot be retrieved on this screen.|
|Compress port usage by reassigning high ports into any available gaps (no restart required)||Reduces the range of port numbers being used to proxy resources by reassigning hosts at high port numbers to ports with lower port numbers. If ports are successfully reassigned, you will receive a confirmation message stating, # ports reassigned, after selecting this option and clicking process.|
This section provides additional information about your EZproxy configuration, including limit settings, the peak value your server has experienced, and whether SSL has been enabled.
|Peak Sessions active/limit: ###/###||Shows the number of sessions active and the maximum number of sessions that can be active at one time. To increase the max active sessions, edit the MaxSessions directive in your config.txt file and increase the number of hosts (500 is the default).|
|Peak concurrent transfers active/limit: ###/###||Shows the peak number of concurrent sessions that has occurred and the maximum number of transfers that can occur at the same time. To increase the max concurrent transfers, edit the MaxConcurrentTransfers directive in your config.txt and increase the number of hosts (200 is the default).|
|Peak virtual hosts/limit: ###/###||Shows the peak number of virtual hosts that have been in use on your EZproxy server and the maximum number of virtual servers that may be in use. To increase the max virtual hosts, edit the MaxVirtualHosts directive in your config.txt file and increase the number of hosts (200 is the default).|
Below the limit settings, you will see a message reporting whether SSL has been enabled for your EZproxy installation.
