The Graphical User Interface

Instead of using ssh to access the admin interface, the dCache graphical user interface can be used. If it is not included in the dCache distribution, it can be downloaded from the dCache homepage. It is started by

[user] $ java -jar org.pcells.jar

First, a new session has to be created with SessionNew.... After giving the session a name of your choice, a login mask appears. The session is configured with the Setup button. The only thing that needs to be configured is the hostname. After clicking Apply and Quit you are ready to log in. Pressing the right mouse button clicking Login will scan the dCache instance for domains. Cells can be reached by clicking on their name and the same commands can be entered as in the SSH login.

The other tabs of the GUI are very useful for monitoring the dCache system.
