Consul Monitoring

Please note that the FIXICC H2 monitors the current state of the Consul application. If the Consul is not available at the moment, a warning banner appears at the top of the application screen (see example below).

When the Consul application doesn't work operationally, the FIXICC H2 can't guarantee the true health state of the servers. Thus, the list and status of the sessions that is displayed can differ from the actual list and statuses.

The warning banner is displayed on the screens below:
