Tracking results can be presented on the computer screen as well as exported to files in different formats.
Wialon Hosting main interface is an interface where end users watch their units and create and configure diverse system micro objects for tracking purposes:
These items cannot exist independently and are a part of some resource.
The detailed description of Wialon Hosting user interface can be found in the section of this guide entitled Monitoring System.
CMS Manager is a special interface developed for Wialon Hosting managers. CMS refers to Content Management System. Content in this context is system macro objects which are:
Macro objects are different from micro objects in several ways:
CMS Manager is designed to work with these items — create, configure, update, copy, import, export, delete them, and what is the most important distribute access rights to these objects. Access right is a possibility to view some system objects and perform allowed actions over them.
Partly these functions can be also fulfilled in the user interface. However, the main difference here is that CMS Manager has a handy easy-to-use interface that allows to work with a great number of items, filter them by different criteria, display them in the form of a table, create tabs with search results, and many more. Besides, the exclusive privilege of CMS Manager is possibility to work with accounts (that is to control payment, restrict services and adjust their cost) and retranslators.
There is one type of macro object that is not available in CMS Manager — route. Routes can be created only in the user interface of Wialon Hosting. They store check points and schedules inside and do not depend on any resource. However, it is possible to manage access to routes — through user properties dialog.
