Scrambler WEB Browser Interface Scrambler publishes its monitoring and alerting information on the Internet WEB (with security) which provides an extremely useful feedback loop for support. When you get an alert you can go into Internet Explorer or Netscape and browse the Scrambler WEB page. From there you can see the status of all current alerts and what problems are outstanding. If an escalating alert is in progress you can cancel any further escalation. You can also send a ‘manual page’ from here to a pager or cellphone to tell someone else what is happening. Any user can make use of manual paging as a valuable addition to . For security, they can only page the centrally maintained contact list.

UNIX Monitoring with Scrambler n Scrambler SYSLOG Monitored Object n UNIX Host Login MO n UNIX process and disk volume monitor n TCP Services (ports) monitor n SNMP Query and SNMP Trap MOs n FTPGET to scan Unix based log files n IP Ping MO (is the UNIX server UP ?) The following Scrambler MO’s (Monitored Objects) can be used to monitor UNIX servers including HP9000 and RS6000
UNIX Monitoring with SYSLOG u Scrambler listens for all SYSLOG alerts u Monitor unlimited numbers of UNIX hosts u Just add the following line to /etc/syslog.conf è è u Then use the following command to send alerts è è $ logger -p local0.alert “ UNIX problem ” u Low overhead on the UNIX servers UNIX SYSLOG is a built-in part of all UNIX servers, and automatically monitors UNIX events. It is the UNIX equivalent of the NT Event Logs.Without Scrambler it is very difficult to make good use of it.
Monitoring OpenVMS with Scrambler è Low disc free space (%) eg DUA0: è Existence of critical processes è Existence of critical batch and print queues eg SYS$BATCH è Device errors eg MUA0: The OpenVMS LOGIN MO logs into the Alpha/Vax host and runs DCL scripts to check for system problems. The following are examples of OpenVMS problems detected:- In addition, the Scrambler paging command is provided in DCL to allow alerting from any existing DCL script.
Monitoring HP3000 with Scrambler 4 TurboImage Database capacities (% Full) 4 Existence of critical MPE BATCH JOBS 4 Disc volume free space (%) 4 Old Console messages not REPLY’d to (> 30 MIN) 4 Unspooled printers in the HP3000 spool queue 4 $STDLIST error scan with MPEX, NBSpool etc. The HP3000 LOGIN MO logs into the HP3000 host and runs several MPE/iX tests to check for system problems. The following potential problems are monitored by default:- In addition, the Scrambler SYSLOG MO can be used by HP3000’s on MPEiX 6.0 or greater. This provides a new ‘LOGGER’ command in MPE/iX to allow alerting from any existing MPE batch job or command line.
Monitoring AS/400 with Scrambler Scrambler can monitor any number of IBM AS/400 servers from a single NT workstation. AS/400 monitoring uses the Scrambler’s AS/400 LOGIN Monitored Object (MO). User provides AS/400 username and password to the MO in the ‘Scrambler for NT’ software so it can log in. The MO periodically logs into the AS/400 to check system availability (the frequency is set by the user). After it has logged in, the MO can run CL scripts on the AS/400 to check for additional critical problems.
