PagerPlus « NDC



PagerPlus monitors an OpenVMS system and alerts the system manager by cell phone, e-mail, broadcast messages or pager whenever conditions he has selected occur. For example, it can send an alert when a particular disk is more than 90% full.


A system manager will never walk in Monday to find Friday’s backup didn’t run to completion with PagerPlus. It gives him the opportunity to handle problems before they develop into something worse. It lets a system manager get more work done. It also makes his job easier, knowing he will be informed when or if any of his alert conditions occur. He no longer has to constantly check the system. He can define the ideal for his system and be alerted to its every departure.

Easy to Install and Use

PagerPlus is easy to use. The system manager simply defines the ideal conditions by entering them in configuration screens. For example, to monitor a file, he would enter the filename on the appropriate configuration screen. PagerPlus will then monitor the file’s existence. If it is missing, the program will alert the system manager. Adding “=A” after the filename means the file should be absent. If the file appears, the system manager will be notified. It’s that simple. PagerPlus can even alert others if the system manager doesn’t receive or doesn’t want to receive the message!
The PagerPlus User’s Guide contains easy-to-use, complete instructions for installation and how to use the simple configuration screens to define rules and exceptions.
