Run Day 2 Actions on Your Environment
Now that you have a running environment, let's see what you can do in it.
All active and historic environment are listed in the space's Environments page. Use the filters and search bar to quickly find what you're looking for.
The image below is showing only the active ones.
The environment opens in the Grains view, but you can switch to YAML view to see the environment's YAML definition file, and Resources view to see the environment's resources. You can click the grains and resources to see their details.
Right above the main area you have the Logs, Resources, Updates, and Detected Drift buttons.
Updates and Detected Drift
Torque continuously monitors the environment as well as its source files and will notify you via the Updates and Detected Drift buttons if someone makes changes to the blueprint's asset or the environment's cloud resources while the environment is running. Click the relevant button to view and resolve the changes.
- Updates shows changes made to the asset's definition file, allowing you to optionally update the environment
- Drift Detection shows any of the environment's resources that were modified externally. Click the error to see the modifications, and Reconcile to revert a resource back to its original state.
Resource Actions and Workflows
Torque provides a built-in set of Actions you can run on specific AWS and Azure VMs in the environment. These include Power on, Power off, Restart as well as Connect, which creates an RDP or SSH connection to the VM directly from Torque. Workflows are scheduled actions (created by your admin) that run on all VMs of a certain cloud provider (AWS or Azure) in all of the space's environments.
Switch to Resources view.
Click a resource tile.
The resource's Actions as well as attributes and tags are displayed in the left pane.
Hover over the relevant action and click Run.
Click the action's name to see its progress.
Click Workflows to see which workflows apply to your environment. Note that you can also manually run the workflows ahead of their scheduled run time.
