Management Console

Management Console (MC) is the Vertica in-browser monitoring and management tool. Its graphical user interface provides a unified view of your Vertica database operations.

Through user-friendly, step-by-step screens, you can create, configure, manage, and monitor your Vertica databases and their associated clusters.

You can use MC to operate your Vertica database in Eon Mode or in Enterprise Mode. You can use MC to provision and deploy a Vertica Eon Mode database.

MC-related issues through a browser

Management Console provides some, but not all, the functionality that Administration Tools provides. Management Console also includes extended functionality not available in admintools. This additional functionality includes a graphical view of your Vertica database and detailed monitoring charts and graphs. See Administration Tools and Management Console in the Administrator's Guide for more information.

Getting MC

Download the Vertica server RPM and the MC package from myVertica Portal. You then have two options:

  • Install Vertica and MC at the command line and import one or more Vertica database clusters into the MC interface
  • Install Vertica directly through MC

See the Installation Guide for details.
