In this blog we can have a look at the Apache Sling configurations and capabilities that are exposed and available for fine tuning.
Apache Sling is a framework for RESTful web applications, mapping HTTP request URLs to content resources based on the request’s path, extension, etc.,

The console exposes various capabilities and monitoring features like log support, configuration, installed packages / bundles, memory usage, exposed REST services etc., useful in maintaining and fine tuning the application
