The Challenge

Have you ever known a system manager with time to spare? Computer system management is an essential part of your organization's operations and your system managers are, no doubt, overstretched. They need the best tools available so they can do their jobs properly and efficiently. 

The Solution

Sysgem System Manager (SSyM) is a multi-platform system management product that provides solutions to your day-to-day system management needs. Its distributed software 'agents' run on all major platforms and its central 'management console' (GUI) runs on Windows. SSyM uses a client / server architecture to execute scripts on target systems under the control of the central management console. It provides a wide range of distributed system management functions that can be further extended by customization at the central location.

Existing functionality or new customer-specific options can be easily integrated into the product using the separately available Sysgem Development Manager (SDeM) Module.

Detailed Features

File and Directory Explorer

  • Customize the explorer menus to perform actions on remote Windows / UNIX/Linux / OpenVMS files.

Interactive Command Scripts

This feature enables you to run scripts interactively on remote multi-platform systems without having to log into an account on that system.

Virtual Desktop

If you can only solve a particular problem when you are logged into a system, then one of SSyM's Virtual Desktop options will satisfy your needs. Use the Remote Desktops option to remotely connect to the GUI desktops on your multi-platform servers anywhere in your network. Alternatively, preset Telnet sessions to automatically connect to designated systems, have the option to run scripts to log into those systems, and even automatically run operating system command scripts in those sessions.

Monitor & Management Displays

SSyM has a set of displays that monitor specific system management attributes, across multiple platforms, and across the entire customer network. The information is displayed and refreshed at regular intervals. And you can take corrective action to modify data or the operational status of remote systems. These functions can also be customized or complemented to meet your specific customer needs using the Sysgem Development Manager Module.


Machines and Ping

SSyM enables you to monitor the availability of a selected set of machines using TCP / IP Ping. If you wish, it can also raise an alarm when machines become unavailable, or network response times become too long, etc. In addition, it monitors the availability of Sysgem software agents and allows the system time of remote systems to be synchronized.

NT Event Log Displays

These displays provide you with a constantly refreshed summary of the recent event log entries on a selected list of NT servers. They can also be set to alert you when selected events occur on any of the systems being monitored (e.g. by sending an email or running scripts when these events happen). And by archiving records, you will have a permanent summarized audit trail of the selected events captured in the monitor window.

VMS Audit Journal Browser

The audit journal from a selection of VMS servers is summarized in a display window covering a selected period of time. The resulting display can be sorted, filtered, and extracted to any of the standard report formats, such as HTML, text files, Excel spreadsheets and mail, etc.


The UNIX SYSLOG entries are captured and displayed from a selected set of UNIX Servers. As with all SEM display windows, these displays can then be filtered, sorted and extracted in standard report formats.

CPU & Disk Monitoring

A range of displays enable you to monitor performance, including:

  • CPU Loading
  • DISK I/O loading
  • Disk Usage
  • VMS Shadow Sets

Queues, Jobs, Processes and Services
