Distributed System (Error) Management Reports?

» close window

The Question is:

How do I create a general report on the system errors for a 6 node VAX/Alpha
 setup not clustered?  I would prefer the report to run automatically and daily
 for all 6 nodes.
Regards and rsvp,

The Answer is :

  Using DCL and DECnet, or DCL and a webserver, most commonly.
  Ask The Wizard topics (5409), (159), (798), (1910) and various
  other associated topics will be of particular interest here.
  Some simple DECnet task-to-task DCL, a self-resubmitting batch
  queue entry or a scheduling package, and you are done...
  For more advanced approaches, consider AMDS or Availability
  Manager or other network-based management tools.  The DECevent
  and Compaq Analyze tools can also be used for fault prediction
  and reporting.
  Or consider using a set of CGI script and webservers on each of
  the nodes.  From one central webpage, details from each of the
  hosts can easily be displayed.  (Why provide a static report on
  errors when the live data can be examined?)  For information on
  CGI and DCL, please see topics including (558), (1165), (1284),
  and (1990).
