The J-Web interface allows you to monitor, configure, troubleshoot, and manage the routing platform by means of a Web browser enabled with Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) or HTTP over Secure Sockets Layer (HTTPS). J-Web provides access to all the configuration statements supported by the routing platform, so you can fully configure it without using the Junos OS CLI.
You can perform the following tasks with the J-Web interface:
- Monitoring—Display the current configuration and information about the system, interfaces, chassis, routing protocols, routing tables, routing policy filters, and other features.
- Configuring—View the current configurations at a glance, configure the routing platform, and manage configuration files. The J-Web interface provides the following different configuration methods:
- Configure the routing platform quickly and easily without configuring each statement individually.
- Edit a graphical version of the Junos OS CLI configuration statements and hierarchy.
- Edit the configuration in a text file.
- Upload a configuration file.
The J-Web interface also allows you to manage configuration history and set a rescue configuration.
- Troubleshooting—Troubleshoot routing problems by running the ping or traceroute diagnostic tool. The diagnostic tools also allow you to capture and analyze routing platform control traffic.
- Maintaining—Manage log, temporary, and core (crash) files and schedule reboots on the routing platforms. On J Series routers, you can also manage software packages and licenses and copy a snapshot of the system software to a backup device.
- Configuring and monitoring events—Filter and view system log messages that record events occurring on the router. You can configure files to log system log messages and also assign attributes, such as severity levels, to messages.
- Configuring and monitoring alarms—On J Series routers only, monitor and diagnose the router by monitoring active alarms that alert you to the conditions on a network interface. You can also set the conditions that trigger alarms on an interface.
