Network connection


Explains what the feature is or what its benefits are to the user or customer.


Before accessing ThoughtSpot, you will need a network connection.

You can refer to the ThoughtSpot Administrator Guide to see which ports must remain open to outside traffic for handling certain network requests and for inter-cluster communication. You can also find information on how to test your network connectivity between nodes and network security.

Here are some more details on ports and node communication:

  • Port redundancy (bonding) is not supported. Only one 10G port is active per node.
  • Nodes communicate to each other via the 10G connection (data ports).
  • All nodes should be on the same VLAN – ideally connected to the same top of rack switch.
  • IPMI ports are used for management functions of the nodes.
