There are some nifty and good-looking admin tools out there for software products nowadays.
But many sysadmins prefer the raw, unadulterated power of the good old command line interface.
The SGD command line interface is a powerful tool and it all begins with the "tarantella" command located under <install_dir>/bin.
The way it works is that there is a hierarchy of commands available from this top-level command.
At each level you can append "--help" to get a usage of the command at that level.
e.g. The top level command is:
[root@servername ~]# /opt/tarantella/bin/tarantella
Usage: tarantella <command> [<command-specific args>]
