Telnet Administration Interface
The Slingshot Web Distribution System (WDS) includes a telnet administration facility. This allows
an administrator to view vital information about how the WDS is running, how many users are connected
and which data is being watched by which users. The telnet interface can be used to see which services
are up or down, how many objects are being held in cache, users' queue sizes and how many messages
have been sent or received. These statistics can also be requested just like any other object
and displayed in a web page for those users permissioned to view the data.
