I remembered when I was pretty new to storm and I launched logviewer for the first time. I visited xxxxx:8000 out of my natural but then got "page not found". I thought there must be something wrong with my storm setup. It took me a while to figure it out that logviewer doesn't work that way. I also found some other people were also confused about this, example . We probably want to show some descriptions/guides on the index page.
