If you’re setting up an monitoring point for the first time or you’re dusting off an old monitoring point, you’re best bet is to run through the setup instructions for your model. If for some reason you want to change the config for an monitoring point that’s already online, you can use web admin or the admin API. In this case remember that if the new address is in a different subnet than the old one, you’ll lose network connectivity after restarting networking.

Web admin

  1. Log in to web admin.
  2. Click ‘network configuration’.
  3. Click on an existing interface.
  4. Make your changes.
  5. Restart networking.

Admin API

  1. Use the interface resource in the admin API. To access the API you’ll need to complete monitoring point setup and then plug the monitoring point hostname into this url.
