Details of smc-xxx commands

This section sets out the list of commands specific to SMC that can be used in the command line interface to manage the server. To find out how to log on to the command line interface, refer to the section Getting started with the SMC server.

There are other smc-xxx commands that have not been mentioned in this list as they are solely intended for the internal operations of the server.
