The ONOS GUI is a single-page web-application, providing a visual interface to the ONOS controller (or cluster of controllers).
For documentation on how applications running on ONOS can contribute content to the GUI at runtime, see (TBD).
For documentation on the design of the GUI, see the GUI Architecture page.
GUI Configuration Notes
- The onos-gui feature must be installed in ONOS.
- The GUI listens on port 8181.
- The base URL is /onos/ui; for example, to access the GUI on localhost, use: http://localhost:8181/onos/ui
- The GUI has been developed to work on Google Chrome. Other browsers may work, but have not been extensively tested, and are not currently actively supported.
GUI Session Notes
Note that the current version of the GUI does not support the concept of users, nor require login credentials. These enhancements will be added in a later release.
On launching the GUI you should see a screen that looks something like this:
The Masthead provides overall GUI controls. In future versions, this will be where session information (login, user preferences etc.) will be located. For now, it provides a location for the topology layer filter buttons.
The Topology view is shown as the default view. Other views are available; see the notes on navigation.
The ONOS Controller Instance Panel and the Summary Panel are parts of the Topology View.
