Administration Tools

One of the ways you can manage a Vertica database is provided in the form of a graphical user interface, called Administration Tools.

This tool allows you to perform various tasks quickly and easily, some of which are:

  • View the state of the database cluster
  • Create a database
  • Start a database
  • Stop a database
  • Run Database Designer
  • Connect to a database using vsql

Using the following command, always run the Administration Tools on the Administration Host if possible.

$ /opt/vertica/bin/adminTools

Throughout the Vertica documentation, you might see Administration Tools referred to as Admin Tools or admintools or adminTools. They all refer to the same utility.
