Presentation of Rudder Web Interface

The web interface is organised according to the concepts described earlier. It is divided in three logical parts: Node Management, Configuration Management and Administration.

Rudder Home

The home page summarizes the content of the other parts and provides quick links for the most common actions.

This section contains tools useful for your everyday usage of Rudder. This is where you will find the technique editor, the event logs table or the change requests if you have enabled that feature.
