TrueCommand is a multi-system management “Single pane of Glass” system that helps control and monitor your TrueNAS fleet. TrueCommand assists in managing TrueNAS systems through REST APIs, WebSocket APIs, and a web user interface. The TrueCommand web interface provides single sign-on functionality and unified administration of users and TrueNAS systems.
TrueCommand can monitor an entire fleet of TrueNAS systems and thousands of online storage devices simultaneously. This includes displaying statistics on storage usage, network activity, active services, and more. TrueCommand also has the ability to create custom reports about individual systems or a combination of many systems.
TrueCommand centralizes the management of alerts across a fleet of TrueNAS systems. In addition to the standard system alerts, administrators can define custom alerts.
Administrators can also create custom graphical reports. Reports are configurable and can span as many systems as desired and/or set of metrics. This brings the information that the administrators deem the most relevant immediately to visibility. Report data can be exported in CSV or JSON for other uses.
Alerts for all managed systems are shown in TrueCommand’s web-based dashboard. Notification groups can also be defined so that unique groups receive specific alerts via email. This enables TrueCommand to keep the right individuals informed of any current or potential problems.
TrueCommand is free to use for up to 50 drives. Licenses to expand TrueCommand capabilities are purchased from the iXsystems account portal. Pricing is based on the number of drives and the desired level of support.
TrueCommand Cloud is a secure SaaS offering that includes a WireGuard VPN capability to connect TrueNAS systems through firewalls. TrueCommand Cloud is compatible with TrueNAS versions 12.0+ or SCALE for the Wireguard VPN capability. Subscribe to and set up TrueCommand Cloud using these instructions.
