Using the System Management Console

The System Management Console (SMC) is a Yellowbrick user interface, mainly used for administration and monitoring. The SMC is an intuitive and largely self-explanatory graphical user interface. This section summarizes its main uses and provides basic startup and login instructions.

Yellowbrick recommends the use of an evergreen browser (a browser that is automatically updated with new features, performance improvements, and security fixes). The SMC is supported on the following web browsers, all of which are classified as evergreen:
  • Google Chrome: Version 40 and up
  • Mozilla Firefox: Version 35 and up
  • Microsoft Edge: Version 12 and up
  • Safari: Version 9 and up
Note: The SMC is not supported on IE11 or any other version of Internet Explorer.
