You are here: User Guide > Using LifeKeeper Linux > GUI


The GUI components should have already been installed as part of the LifeKeeper Core installation. 

The LifeKeeper GUI uses Java technology to provide a graphical user interface to LifeKeeper and its configuration data. Since the LifeKeeper GUI is a client/server application, a user will run the graphical user interface on a client system in order to monitor or administer a server system where LifeKeeper is running. The client and the server components may or may not be on the same system.
