About

The about page can be accessed via The Administer Menu:

Administer > About

The about page details useful information about your orcharhino installation. The information provided includes the backend system status, and lists of all installed packages, smart proxies, available providers, compute resources, and plugins (as well as version information for all of the above).


The about page is subdivided into several distinct areas as follows:

Example about page
  • The System Status area (1) includes several tabs and is discussed below. (See System Status Area below).
  • The Backend System Status area (2) lists the status of several important orcharhino backend services. These services should generally always have status “OK”. Checking this list is often a first point of call when troubleshooting orcharhino. (See also the Troubleshooting chapter).
  • The Support area (3) provides two links. The “Documentation” link will take you to this documentation, as bundled with your orcharhino installation. The “ATIX Service Portal” link will take you to https://serviceportal.atix.de. This portal allows ATIX customers to create ATIX support tickets and grants access to the ATIX knowledge base. Using the ATIX service portal requires a customer login (which is provided to anyone with an active ATIX support subscription).
  • The System Information area (4) will tell you what version of orcharhino you are using (3.5 in the above screenshot), and includes a mailto:info@atix.de link. (See also Contact).
  • The Installed Packages area (5) will list all orcharhino related packages currently installed on the host system that your orcharhino installation is running on.

System Status Area

The System Status area includes several distinct tabs each of which is discussed below.

The Smart Proxies tab lists any smart proxies (see also Smart Proxies) known to your orcharhino installation:

System Status: Smart Proxy tab
  • This list will generally include your orcharhino host itself. (And for many use cases the main orcharhino host will be the only smart proxy listed).
  • The columns of the list are fairly self explanatory. The Status should generally always be “Active” (Active symbol). This is another possible first point of call when troubleshooting orcharhino. (See also the Troubleshooting chapter).

The Available Providers tab shows whether the packages required for a given type of compute resource (see also Compute Resources) are installed on orcharhino:

System status: Available providers
  • The list is fairly self explanatory.

The Compute Resources tab lists all compute resources (see also Compute Resources) known to your orcharhino:

System status: Compute resources
  • The list is fairly self explanatory.
  • The status should generally always be “OK”.

The Plugins tab lists all plugins (see also the Plugin Guides chapter) installed on orcharhino, along with the relevant plugin version:

System status: plugins
  • Clicking on a plugin name in the Name column (1) will take you to a website chosen by the plugin’s author. (In many cases this is just the relevant git repository, while some plugins have their own website).
