The Diagnostics page allows you to issue diagnostic commands to the selected Mako and then view the diagnostic results.
To execute the “IDS Status” diagnostic command, click its radio button in the Command column of the list. The diagnostic results will appear above the list.
The “IDS Status” diagnostic results (Fig. 1) show the status of the selected Mako’s IDS service and statistics related to this service. This may be useful when troubleshooting any issues related to the IDS service.
- Status – current IDS service status
