Admin Hub

The Admin Hub is used to display the topology of the services in the Pyramid cluster including high level diagnostic data. It can also include a summary of the current licensing, pulse nodes, and tasks status.

Data discoveries and presentations can also be displayed in the Admin Hub. This is a good way to share your organization's Pyramid usage data.
