The main view of the console gives you access to the list of your own and shared applications. Each row in the list describes the region the application is created in as well as the offer type and the owner if the application is not yours. it also includes quick action buttons to preview the app, delete it or get its detailed view.
When you select an application from the list, a control panel with different views appears.
The general view gives you real-time statistics of the memory and disk space usage. This view also provides a control panel to manage your app, as well as a log of the most recent operations performed.
Stop/Start/Reload your application¶
You can access the control panel to manage the state of your remote application. You can do one of the three following actions: start,stop or reload the application.
The summary block displays information regarding memory’s and disk space’s current usage. It also provides a quick shortcut to the Git repository associated to your app and the version of your application’s wakanda server.
This summary will help you make the correct decisions about scaling either up or down your application.
The recent actions you or your collaborators have executed (update permissions, publish app, ...) are displayed in this view.
The monitoring view allows you to monitor the activity of your application, by charting the usage statistics of memory, storage and network throughput.
You can select a time frame for your graphs by setting a display window as well as a starting date:

The database view allows you to manage your application’s data, from scheduling your backups to exporting your remote waData file.
You can schedule, download and restore your backups in this view.
To schedule a backup you simply have to set the frequency and the time you want to start your full backups.
The frequency of the incremental backups depend on the choice you have made.
There are three frequencies you can choose from:
- Daily: a full backup of your application’s data will occur every day at the time you have specified. An incremental backup is executed every hour.
This frequency is suitable for applications in which data is critical and requires a fine level of restore points.
- Weekly: a full backup of your application’s data will occur every week at the day and time you have specified. An incremental backup is executed once every 6 hours.
This type of frequency is a good compromise between the uptime of your application and the restore points available.
- Monthly: a full backup of your application’s data will occur every month at the date and time you have specified. An incremental backup is executed every 24 hours.
If the uptime of your application is something you care about, this frequency is most suited for your application. The full backup is only performed once a month and lets you have daily restore points.
You can also find the list of completed backups
Each row contains information about the backup made at that point in time. It includes the date of the backup, its state, its type and the various actions that can be done on it (download backup file, restore it, or the download its verify report).

You can easily manage your remote application’s data by importing and exporting your waData file in this view.

Select File button.
Once the waData file is selected, click on the
Import Data button and your newly imported data will take effect.
