Unix Analysis Tool Updated

MacSOS has released Unix Console 2.6. Unix Console allows Solaris Unix systems to be analyzed and monitored by providing graphic results of the system. Version 2.6 is significantly faster and more stable and has addressed a number of known bugs. According to the productis designer, Dr. Gerard Hammond:

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.

This application works best with Sun Microsystemis Solaris UNIX, although some modules may work on other platforms. At this stage only Solaris 2.6 is supported. No non-Solaris server-side components need be installed.

Features include:

  • File Browser
  • RAM and SWAP Usage
  • SAMBA and EtherShare client overview modules
  • Display of BSD printer spools
  • Disk utilisation module
  • Ethernet interface module
  • Telnet terminal
  • Load analysis
  • RAM usage analysis (requires sar to be installed and active)
  • CPU historical analysis (requires sar to be installed and active)
  • Process overview

For Power Macintosh and Windows 9x/NT/2000.

Unix Console is available for US$199. You can find more information at the MacSOS web site.
