All activity for a machine, either initiated by an admin or the DediConnect system is reported to the activity page. Issues are also reported here.
Bring activity logs to your dashboard panels using the "Events & activity" dashboard widget.
Click the machine you want to manage in the sidebar and go to
Machine names can be changed for easy navigation & identification.
Steam download credentials
In rare occasions the required game server files can only be downloaded from Steam when the machine is logged in with a Steam account that bought the game. When you're trying to install a game that requires this you need to enter the Steam account credentials here and disabled Steam Guard.
While we agree that having to enter Steam credentials and disabling Steam Guard is far from ideal, it's currently the only option.
Throttle / stagger actions
In certain cases you may want to reduce the number of things that happen simultaneously on your machine. When too many things, like updating all game servers, happen simultaneously it might cause severe performance issues with a machine.
Mitigate this problem by settings a limit to how many things DediConnect will make the machine do in parallel.
If you experience issues with your machine it can be useful to test various settings. Start with a low number and slowly work your way up. Test the new settings, by updating all game server simultaneously, before making new changes.
Configure which disks/volumes can be used for DediConnect.
As the name implies: things you can do here are dangerous and can cause data loss!
When the IP for the machine changed you can update the IP for the machine here.
Update machine credentials
Updating the machine login credentials is usually only necessary when re-installing the machine.
Manage the installed Docker images on the machine and purge unused images.
Game file cache
Manage game file cache for installed games and purge unused game files.
Removing a machine is permanent. It can not be undone.
This action does not remove files from the machine, but will remove all data on GSA about the machine.
