A node is a server that is using the configured Qlik Sense services. There is always a central node in a deployment and nodes can be added for different service configurations. There is always a repository on every node.

A Qlik Sense site is a collection of one or more server machines (that is, nodes) connected to a common logical repository or central node.

Information noteIn a Shared Persistence multi-node installation, you can make one or more nodes failover candidates. In the case of a central node failure, a failover candidate will assume the role of central node.

The Nodes overview lists all the available nodes. The following table presents the available fields and buttons. By default, only some of the fields are displayed. You can use the column selector (Table) to add fields.

Tip noteYou can adjust the column width by dragging the header border.
