A.2. VoltDB Management Interface: Reference Section

The VoltDB management interface provides a set of management functions that let you create, update, and remove resources within the Enterprise Manager. These management services let you define databases, add servers and catalogs, and stop and start the databases, all programmatically using HTTP calls. These services are available from URLs starting with /man/api/1.0/mgmt/.

The management interface also provides a set of informational services, that return statistical data about running databases, the differences between two catalogs, and log messages from database servers and the Enterprise Manager itself. The URLs for information services start with /man/api/1.0/info or /man/api/1.0/log.

Table A.3, “Summary of the VoltDB Management REST Interface” summarizes the resources and methods available through the VoltDB management interface.
