The dashboard provides information on the peer's status:

  • Master Location. The master node's IP address and port number.
  • Is registered. Is the peer registered with the master?
  • Replication port. The port on which the peer receives replicated data from other peers.

You will also notice a Configure button at the top of the dashboard. You can click the button to reconfigure the settings for the peer.
