NuoDB Insights is now enabled. To access your personalized dashboard, visit: https://insights.nuodb.com/NEZ110NZ9B/
Instructions for customers running legacy Admin (nuoagent)
If the nuoagent service is running, NuoDB Insights metrics collection
will automatically begin within 5 minutes.  If the nuoagent service is
not running, or to start collecting immediately, you can (re)start the
nuoagent with the command:

  "/opt/nuodb/etc/nuoagent" restart
Instructions for customers running NuoDB Admin (nuoadmin)
If you are running nuoadmin with TLS enabled (which is the default)
you must manually provision a TLS key for NuoDB Insights and copy it
into '/etc/nuodb/keys/nuodb_insights.pem'. NuoDB Insights metrics
collection will automatically begin within 5 minutes.


Insights will display a live view of your metrics in a dashboard designed by NuoDB.  The link to the dashboard is included in the output of the enable_insights.sh script.

In this example, the Insights dashboard link is https://insights.nuodb.com/NEZ110NZ9B -- your dashboard link will be unique.  The link to dashboard NEZ110NZ9B is an example - you won't see a live dashboard there.
