Accessing and reviewing Informational views

The Properties link in the Informational views section allows you to access static configuration details about a specific NameServer instance.
To access and review Properties details:
1. From the grid frame for Resources, click the Edit icon to display the details page for the NameServer instance whose properties you want to review. See Accessing OpenEdge Management resource information for the detailed steps.
2. Click Properties in the Informational views section to display the Static Configuration page:
This view comprises a single Properties section that shows fields and values previously defined in the file. These values are derived at startup.
The following table describes the contents of this section.

The specific values that pertain to these fields:
*NameServer location — Indicates whether the NameServer is local or remote. A local service identifies a NameServer instance that runs locally on the selected host. A remote service runs remotely on a network machine that is separate from the selected host.
*Host name — Identifies the name of the host machine.
*Port number — Identifies the number of the UDP port that the NameServer uses to listen for client connection requests and registration messages from AppServers and Transaction Servers.
The specific values that pertain to these fields:
*Working directory — Identifies the NameServer working directory, including the pathname.
*Broker keep alive timeout — Identifies a value, in seconds, that indicates how often the NameServer should check for Unified Broker instances that have timed out.
When a Unified Broker instance registers with a NameServer, the instance indicates how often it will send "keep-alive" messages by setting a registration retry value. Once a NameServer determines that it has not received a "keep-alive" message from a Unified Broker instance within the broker's registration retry time, the NameServer automatically unregisters the instance.
*Autostart — Indicates whether the NameServer will start automatically when the controlling AdminServer starts. If the value 1 appears, the Autostart option is set. If the value zero appears, then the Autostart option is not set.
The specific values that pertain to these fields:
*Server log filename — Identifies the NameServer log filename, including the pathname.
*Logging level — Shows one of three possible values to specify the amount of information to be written to the server log: Error only, Terse, or Verbose.
*Append to log file — Indicates if a new NameServer log file is created when the NameServer is started. A 1 indicates that log entries will be appended to the existing NameServer log file.
The specific value that pertains to the optional field Neighboring NameServers. This field identifies a list of selected NameServers to which this NameServer can forward connection requests for Application Services that are not registered with it (that is, the Application Service name is unknown).
The specific NameServer environment variables that are defined for the process in which the NameServer executes.
