The sub-pages “VSM Agent” and “VSM Master” in Web Admin are confusing, since we otherwise refer to these components simply as “Agent” and “Master”.
Introducing additional concepts like this only leads to confusion. It is confusing enough as it is today that we have the name “VSM” at all (bug 571).
New admins might get the impression that there is some difference between a “VSM Agent” and a regular “Agent”.
See bug 4717 for the issue of having a top-level item called “VSM” in the Web Admin menu.
This is fixed now. The System Health page was also updated, as well as 3 log lines from the status page.
Relevant documentation for web admin was updated to reflect these new names.
Reopen bug after finding minor issues during review. See comment 7.
The above issues have now been fixed.
Reopening again. Web Admin is supposed to be an abstraction layer above the systemd services. Admins using Web Admin shouldn't necessarily have to care about the systemd service names.
We have decided to remove the service names from these texts in the Web Admin GUI. An option if we want to be helpful is to add the systemd service name as a small note at the bottom of the relevant section.
Fixed an inconsistency in messages coming from the backend, where the services were still referred to as vsmagent and vsmserver.
