Re: Navigator for i vrs. System i Navigator



fixed

Rob,

My host table entry of 10.2.1.7 PROD720.wps-inc.com matches the host name
PROD720 and domain name wsp-inc.com and are the first entry in the list. I
had issues a few months ago making it work until I use the full
http://prod720.wps-inc.com:2001 address to access the navigator piece. Now
FF just gives me no love.

There is an issue with FF.
Even IE runs better.

First of all, record the values you have for
CFGTCP
12. Change TCP/IP domain information
Host name
Domain name
Mine was
Host name GDISYS
Domain name corp.dekko.com

Next, ensure there is a host table entry.
CFGTCP
10. Work with TCP/IP host table entries
10.17.6.129 GDISYS.CORP.DEKKO.COM
If you have multiple entries, like
10.10.252.193 SYS2MIMIX.dekko-1
SYS2MIMIX
SYS2MIMIX.dekko.com
then make sure that the values from "12. Change TCP/IP domain information"
are the FIRST entry in that list.

Disable IPv6 if you are not using it.

My Environment: Power 7 hardware - 720, running 7.1 TR7 - Running the web
browser version in FireFox/Mozilla

I am seeing several articles touting the benefits of Navigator for i
browser based management over the windows based System i Navigator.

I have tried several times to use the browser based version, and I am
seeing VERY long response times.

For example in the work management section: Browser - I click on the
active
jobs. This opens a tab for active jobs. It spins and the elapsed time
shows 15 minutes, but has yet to give me a display of active jobs.

Try the same thing in windows based version and I get almost instant
response list of active jobs.

Same thing with almost all of the work management stuff. Job Queues,
Output Queues, detail in QINTER or another subsystem.

Same thing with sub options of Basic Operations. Long wait times to get
no
response.

Try the same thing in MS Internet Explorer:

I finally get some response, so something is broken with FF. I don't know
about Chrome, but last time I tried to use it I got the same thing as FF.

This seems to me to be a lot less reliable than the windows client, as IBM
can't control when a browser entity breaks functionality. Response time
still not great but might be acceptable. Windows client is better, green
screen is best response.

Any thoughts on how to get better browser response time?

Can we make FF work or must we wait on IBM and/or Mozilla?

With FF I can set an exception for the site security. How can we make
that
fix permanent so any browser will not balk at the connection?

How is the 7.2 version of the same thing? Is it better? I know that
monitoring has been delivered there. That piece has in part, kept me from
going to the browser.

I am not yet sold on the browser as a management tool for i.
