[10:00 AM] MacSOS Makes Unix More, Well, Mac-Like
by Staff

MacSOS has updated Unix Console to version 2.0, providing a Mac-like interface to common Unix commands. This is a blessing for Mac system administrators working with Unix systems. According to MacSOS:

UNIX Console is a Solaris UNIX system analysis and performance tool for Power Macintosh and Windows 9x/NT computers. It consists of a series of modules that send commands to a remote UNIX server and displays a graphical interpretation of the results. Many modules make an analysis of the commands result set and highlight potential problems and suggest possible options. The modules will never override the current users access permission level on the server. Analyses are based on published work.

Features include:

  • dumb telnet terminal
  • Display of BSD printer spools
  • Disk utilization module
  • Ethernet interface module
  • Load analysis
  • RAM usage analysis (requires sar to be installed and active)
  • CPU historical analysis (requires sar to be installed and active)
  • Process overview
  • SAMBA and EtherShare client overview modules

Unix Console is available as shareware for US$99. You can find more information at the MacSOS web site.
