What is PagerPlus?

PagerPlus is a remote monitoring and notification software product that automatically monitors a number of facets of your system and environment and notifies you when conditions you define are not within tolerance.

What does PagerPlus do?

PagerPlus monitors an OpenVMS system and alerts the system manager by e-mail or mobile phone (via SMTP running on the VMS system), pager, or broadcast messages whenever conditions he has selected occur. PagerPlus can be set to escalate and/or alert others if the system manager doesn’t receive or doesn’t want to receive the message. PagerPlus_Watch is a mechanism that enables you to have one system monitor another system’s PagerPlus Monitor Process and provide notification should the watched system’s PagerPlus ceases to function.

How easy is it 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 is intended for OpenVMS system managers at all levels of experience and any, or selected, interactive OpenVMS System users.

How is PagerPlus valuable?

With PagerPlus, a system manager will never walk in Monday to find Friday’s backup didn’t run to completion. It gives him the opportunity to handle problems before they develop into something worse.
A system manager gets more work done because once PagerPlus is configured as desired, one can forget about manually monitoring problems on the OpenVMS system. And, it 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.
