View Edge Server Details

Edge servers are virtual compute resources that are much like other virtual servers in your cloud. You can perform the same basic actions on them as for VSs.

To view all edge servers in the cloud:

  1. Go to your Control Panel > CDN > Edge Servers menu to see an overview of all edge servers in your cloud: their label, IP addresses, power status (with on/off buttons), allocated disk size, RAM and backups.
  2. To reboot, start up or shut down a CDN edge server, click the Actions button next to the required edge server, then select the relevant action.
  3. To narrow the list of edge servers by type, click the relevant tab at the top of the list.

To view a particular edge server's details:

  1. Go to your Control Panel > CDN > Edge Servers menu.
  2. Click the label of the edge server required.
  3. On the screen that appears, use the top navigation tabs to manage your edge server.

    Edge servers are managed with the same tools you use to manage VSs in your cloud. The table below links to the relevant sections of this guide's Virtual Servers chapter. The exception is that autoscaling, backupsand firewall rules are not available for edge servers.
    The Overview tab shows CDN edge server information and gives access to the most frequently-used management tools.

    The Networking tab gives access to the edge server's Network interfaces and IP addresses.

    The Storage tab lets you manage your edge server's disks.


    The integrated VNC console tab gives access to the users' edge servers through the Control Panel UI. This option is available only for edge servers running on KVM compute resources.


    For the HTML5 console, click the Re-connect button if the connection is lost. The re-connection to the console runs as follows: 

    • If the console runs as expected, clicking the Re-connect button causes disconnection and the console is re-connected automatically after 1.5 seconds.
    • If the console gets stuck, clicking the Re-connect button runs your request once again and re-connects the console without reloading.
    • If the console gets disconnected with a status code and an error message, the console is re-connected automatically after 1.5 seconds.
  4. To expand the Tools menu, click the Tools button on the edge server's screen. The list of available options depends on the edge server's status. For options description, refer to relevant sections of the Virtual Servers chapter.
