  1. Log on to the SAG console.
  2. In the top navigation bar, select the region where the SAG instance is deployed.
  3. On the Smart Access Gateway page, find the SAG instance, and then view the status of the instance in the Controller Status column.
    The following table describes different states of an SAG instance.
