FreeNAS Manager is an unofficial management app that can be used to monitor and, to some degree, control a FreeNAS server. It is tested and working on FreeNAS 9.2, 9.3, 9.10 10, and 11 (see below for version-specific notes).
– View basic server info (IP, version, etc.)
– View volumes and their storage space status
– Initiate scrub on volumes
– View datasets and their storage space status
– View jails and their status (running, IP, autostart)
– Start/stop jail
– Reboot, shutdown, and wake (Wake on LAN) server
– HTTPS support – including for self-signed and/or invalid certificates (checkbox in settings)
– Button for opening Web GUI in browser
– Support for multiple servers
– The open jail IP address in a browser
– View disks
– View the number of available updates and apply them
– View/start/stop plugins
– View and run cron jobs
– View and run rsync tasks
– View Alerts
Planned features (not yet implemented):
– View shares and (maybe) allow opening them in external app
– Offline support (show values from last successful connect)
– Reporting (graphs!).
The API of FreeNAS 9.2 (and earlier) is different, so there are a couple of limitations when using that version:
– The server version isn’t available, so it is just shown as 9.2 or earlier.
– Jails can’t be started/stopped
– Volume storage is not the sum of all datasets. It is the same on the Web GUI.
On FreeNAS 9.10 starting and stopping a plugin currently doesn’t work, which is a bug in FreeNAS. I have reported it and will keep an eye on their progress towards fixing it.
Support for FreeNAS 10 (Corral) is limited right now, so the only overview, volumes, disks and power control is available.
This app does not under ANY circumstances contact ANY other server than the one you provided in settings. In other words: Your password (and all other information) is safe – even from me. There are NO ADS – nor will there ever be.
Not yet, but I am strongly considering open-sourcing this app. It depends on the support I get from you guys :)
Why is it not free?
Because I don’t have that much time for development in my spare time and this is an attempt to save a little for a FreeNAS build :)
Don’t hesitate to contact me If you have any problems, suggestions or comments.
Have fun :)
