Since 1986, PARSEC Group has provided excellent technical services for OpenVMS users. To further support our telephone support clients, we created OSM™: PARSEC Group's powerful and proven tool enabling proactive system management, predictive maintenance, and exception-based, timely responsiveness. OSM™ can help you, too!
OSM™ keeps a constant watch over your computers. When something unusual occurs, OSM™ takes the appropriate action. Those responsible deal only with the exceptions, freeing up valuable time. OSM™ will report on events/alerts for:
Each type of event may be defined as either critical or non-critical. The critical events cause immediate action to be taken while the non-critical events are stored up for later notification. This prevents the System Manager from being interrupted with too much "noise" while they are doing their normal job. With multiple methods of reporting, the System Manager may be notified for each type of event in the way most beneficial to them.
OSM™ has other features that assist in the management of a client's OpenVMS systems. These include:
Requirements: One of the following versions of OpenVMS is required.
You may download the documentation or the OpenVMS VMSINSTAL Kit for OSM™.
