You can find the role names in the web.xml file of the Manager web application. The available roles are:

manager-gui — Access to the HTML interface.
manager-status — Access to the "Server Status" page only.
manager-script — Access to the tools-friendly plain text interface that is described in this document, and to the "Server Status" page.
manager-jmx — Access to JMX proxy interface and to the "Server Status" page.

These are some of the key tomcat directories:
/bin - Startup, shutdown, and other scripts. The *.sh files (for Unix systems) are functional duplicates of the *.bat files (for Windows systems). Since the Win32 command-line lacks certain functionality, there are some additional files in here.

/conf - Configuration files and related DTDs. The most important file in here is server.xml. It is the main configuration file for the container.

/logs - Log files are here by default.

/webapps - This is where your webapps go.
