Email Settings

A default installation of Morpheus uses a online service called postmarkapp. Morpheus api requests to the postmarkapp service to send notification e-mails.

To add your own SMTP server you will need to go to the Administration and Settings of your Morpheus appliance. You will then need to provide Morpheus the following information, your mail server systems administrator should provide you with the below information and the preferred encryption method.

  • From Address

  • SMTP Server

  • SMTP Port

  • SSL Enabled

  • TLS Encryption

  • SMTP User

  • SMTP Password

We recommend that you add your Morpheus server to your SMTP white list as well as using user authentication as an additional security measure.

Once you have added your SMTP server information into Morpheus scroll down the Administration and Settings page and press the blue save button which can be found under enabled clouds.

When you have saved your SMTP server settings in the Morpheus appliance you will then need to restart the Morpheus-ui. To restart the Morpheus-ui connection to your Morpheus server via ssh and run the below command.

sudo morpheus-ctl restart morpheus-ui

Important

If you do not restart the Morpheus-ui the notifications will be sent by the original notification service postmarkapp. Please note it can take up to 3 minutes for the ui to become reachable again. has a built in SMTP server for email notifications and alerts. An alternate SMTP server can be specified below:

Add an alternate SMTP Server:

  • From Address

  • SMTP Server

  • SMTP Port

  • SSL Enabled

  • TLS Encryption

  • SMTP User

  • SMTP Password

Proxy Settings

The Morpheus Appliance can be configured to communicate through a Proxy server for Cloud API’s and Agent communication back to the Appliance.

Note

Additional Proxy configuration is available in the Infrastructure > Network > Proxies section. Added Proxies can be scoped to Clouds in the Edit Cloud > Advanced Options section of the Cloud.

Add a Global Proxy server by entering the following:

  • Proxy Host

  • Proxy Port

  • Proxy User

  • Proxy Password

  • Proxy Domain

  • Proxy Workstation

Currency Settings

In Morpheus, Tenants are separate environments which can be defined as using currencies that are unique from one Tenant to the next. In addition, these currencies may be different from the currency in which Price Sets have been defined. In order to present pricing to Subtenant users in their designated currency, Morpheus allows for integration with currency conversion services “open exchange rates” and “fixer.io”. This article goes through the process of setting up the integration and how it works to determine pricing conversions.

Integrating With a Currency Exchange Provider

  1. Navigate to Administration > Settings > APPLIANCE

  2. Under the Currency Settings heading, make a “Currency Provider” selection

  3. Enter your “Provider API Key”

The service is now integrated and can be used as described in the next section.

Consuming Currency Exchange in Morpheus

Currency exchange data is synced from the integrated provider once every 12 hours. When needed, Morpheus will use this cached data to present currency conversions rather than hitting the API directly each time. This limits the total number of API hits and reduces costs.

Exchanged currency values will be shown under conditions similar to the following scenario:

A user is working in a Subtenant configured for Currency B. The user is attempting to provision an instance with pricing sets that have only been defined in Currency A. Morpheus will convert the pricing data from currency A to Currency B for this user (and all users in this Subtenant) since price conversion has been enabled.

Enabled Clouds (Types)

Controls which types of Cloud can be created.

  • When a Cloud type is disabled, it will be removed from the available options when adding new Clouds in Infrastructure > Clouds. Existing Clouds are not affected by changes to this setting.

Logs

Logging Settings

Overview

Morpheus contains a built-in logging solution that aggregates logs from hosts and services. Logs are displayed, searchable, and filterable in the Instance, App, Host and overall Logs sections. Logs can also be forwarded using Syslog Forward rules to any external solution that supports syslogs.

The logs displayed in the Instance, App, Host and overall Logs sections are only from Managed VM’s and Hosts that have the Morpheus agent installed. Instances can be configured to show additional logs by configuring the LOG FOLDER in the Library NODE TYPE. Logs from any .log file in the specified folder will be forwarded by the Morpheus agent to the Morpheus appliance or forwarded with Syslog Forward rules.

Note

The Logs section does not contain Morpheus appliance logs, which can be found in /var/log/morpheus/ and in 3.5.2+ in Operations - Health.

Logs are stored in ElasticSearch and retention can be set by adjusting the Availability Time Frame in the Administration -> Logs section.

Morpheus also has built in Integrations with 3rd Party solutions. When configured, the Morpheus agent will forward logs to the integrated platforms automatically.

Logging Settings for the build-in Logging, Syslog forwards, and 3rd Party Integrations are configurable in the Administration -> Logs section.

Morpheus Logging

Morpheus contains a built-in logging solution that aggregates logs from hosts and services. Logs are displayed, searchable, and filterable in the Instance, App, Host and overall Logs sections. Logs can also be forwarded using Syslog Forward rules to any external solution that supports syslogs.

Splunk

To configure Splunk, create a syslog listener configuration in Splunk. Then it is simply a matter of expanding the section in Logging settings pertaining to Splunk and filling out the host and port of the appender. Once saved, all hosts managed by Morpheus will be configured to forward logs to the target Splunk listener.

LogRhythm

Configuring LogRhythm is much like configuring Splunk. Simply toggle the enabled flag in the LogRhythm section to enabled and fill in the Host, and Port information for the LogRhythm listener.

Guidance

Overview

Morpheus guidance is an important tool that makes recommendations for resource and cost optimization. It analyzes CPU, memory, and storage activities over time to make intelligent recommendations on sizing and power state. These recommendations can free up resources and save organizations significant amounts of money over time. Out of the box, Morpheus is configured for sensible thresholds used in making these recommendations but they can be edited here if needed.

Power Settings

Morpheus will recommend shutting down a resource if all three of the baselines in this section are exceeded:

  • Average CPU (%): Shutdown will be recommended if the average CPU usage is below this value. Values over 100% are possible as this value factors the number of CPU cores. Default value: 75

  • Maximum CPU (%): Shutdown will be recommended if the CPU usage never exceeds this value. Values over 100% are possible as this value factors the number of CPU cores. Default value: 500

  • Network Threshold (bytes): Shutdown will be recommended if the average network bandwidth is below this value. Default value: 2000 bytes/second

CPU Up-size Settings

CPU up-size will be recommended when both of the following baselines are exceeded for a resource:

  • Average CPU (%): CPU up-size is recommended if the average CPU percentage exceeds this value (and other criteria are also met). Default value: 50

  • Maximum CPU (%): CPU up-size is recommended if the maximum CPU percentage exceeds this value. Default value: 99

Memory Up-size Settings

Memory up-size will be recommended when both of the following thresholds are met for a resource:

  • Minimum Free Memory (%): Memory up-size will be recommended if free memory dips below this value. Default value: 10

Memory Down-size Settings

Memory down-size will be recommended when both of the following thresholds are met for a resource:

  • Average Free Memory (%): Memory down-size is recommended if the average free memory is above this value. Default value: 60

  • Maximum Free Memory (%): Memory down-size is recommended if free memory has never dipped below this value. Default value: 30

License

Overview

Morpheus requires a valid license for provisioning new Instances, Apps and Hosts, and converting existing Instances and Hosts to managed. Licenses can be applied and updated in this section, and the current license status can be checked.

Note

Morpheus is licensed for a certain number of concurrent workload elements (WLEs) that may be managed or inventoried at any one time. See our Knowledge Base for specific information on the types of WLEs that count against Morpheus licensing.

Current License

If a License Key has already been applied, the License status is shown in the Current License section:

Tenant Name

Company name the License was generated for.

Start Date

Date and time the current License started.

End Date

Date and time the current License expires.

Space

Amount of used and unused Managed RAM under the current License.

EXAMPLE: On a 1 TB License with 182 GB of RAM under management, the Space section will show Used Space 182.9GB Unused Space 841.0GB

Note

Once a current License expires or has reached its Space limit, users will no longer be able to provision new Instances, Apps, Hosts, or Bare Metal, or convert existing Hosts, Virtual Machines, or Bare Metal to managed. Morpheus will otherwise continue to function.

Upgrade License Key

To add a new or update an existing License:

  1. Copy the License Key into the License Key field

  2. Click UPDATE

If valid, the new License will be applied.

Request new License

Licenses can be requested at https://morpheushub.com, or by contacting support@ or sales@ morpheusdata.com.

Utilities

System administrators have access to a utilities panel with the following options:

  • Reindex all searchable data: Execute

  • Toggle Maintenance Mode: Enable

Note

Maintenance mode cleanly places Morpheus into a state where maintenance can be performed on the appliance. This drains any active sessions and queues so an auto-scaling group can scale down. It also drains active sessions across services.
