General principles for MNet super-administration
MNet super-administration is a feature allowing to massively execute some administration commands on a set of virtualized Moodle platforms. The commands are transmitted to each node using a dedicated MNet function attached to the VMoodle Block scope. The emitting platform should subscribe to the super-administration service, receiving nodes should publish the super-administration service.
The MNet super-administration will provide a unique process for executing any network administration command :
- Building the command : Mostly SQL orders, build manually or through some command preset.
- Choosing targets.
- Command execution and getting results.
Tip !! : command and targets are stored in session, thus it will be easy to execute the same command on another target set, or keeping the target set and making a new command on it.
Super-administration main screen provides several command sets. As super-administration is a fully extensible architecture, developers and integrators may easily add command blocks and define new command templates.
The advanced mode will allow an administrator to write a full SQL query to be played on all target Moodles. Note that the SQL must be independent of local context to have a chance to proceed with success.
