More information: Reorganization of the TREX Landscape.

Landscape: Tree

Depicts the content of the topology.ini configuration file as a tree structure. The configuration file is managed by the name server. It contains technical information about the TREX servers, indexes, and queues.


Only make changes here if those changes are specified in the TREX documentation.

Landscape: Ini

Displays the TREX configuration files.

You can display the content of the configuration files and change it if necessary.


Changing configuration files directly requires expert knowledge of the TREX architecture and TREX-internal processes. Only make direct changes to the configuration files if those changes are described in the TREX documentation.

Landscape: Hosts

It shows the installation directory, the operating system platform, and the installed TREX release.

Landscape: Services

You can stop and start TREX and the TREX servers here.

Landscape: Trace

Displays the trace files of the TREX servers.

By default, the trace files contain all error messages that the TREX servers output. You can display the content of a trace file by double-clicking it and delete trace files that you no longer need.

The Trace Levels function allows you to display the trace levels for the TREX servers and add new trace components if necessary.

In addition, you can specify whether or not and in which format the system is to output trace files.

Landscape: Perf. Trace

You can create and save performance traces here.
