DCE Manager for AIX
Powerful management for the Distributed Computing Environment
The DCE Manager for AIX(r) provides advanced management
capabilities for heterogeneous Distributed
Computing Environment (DCE) installations. With the DCE Manager
on a RISC System/6000(r) (RS/6000(tm)) server,
you can view and control your entire DCE installation.
- Through the Netview(tm) for AIX graphical interface, the DCE Manager
allows an administrator to dynamically view the configuration and status
of all hosts, services and servers in the DCE cells.
- Integrated with Netview for AIX, which provides a physical network
management view, the DCE Manager integrates a logical submap of DCE
servers in the same environment.
- The DCE Manager provides automatic and dynamic discovery of all
DCE servers in the enterprise, decreased set-up and ongoing maintenance
- The DCE Manager allows collection and analysis of management data
as input to performance tuning activities or for automation of activities
such as start-up or load balancing.
Companies are designing and deploying large-scale heterogeneous
client/server applications to meet their business needs today.
Many of these companies have chosen the Distributed Computing Environment
as the basis for their programming and network services infrastructure.
Since these new applications are critical to business, it is important
that key distributed
services such as DCE directory, security and time
services are readily available.
The management of a heterogeneous and geographically distributed environment
typical of DCE installations has been a complex and
difficult task up to this point. With the introduction
of the DCE Manager, the job of problem monitoring and problem resolution
just became easier.
The DCE Manager for AIX provides a graphical user interface to monitor
all DCE clients and servers in an environment. The application is an
integral part of the Netview for AIX program. Netview for AIX will
provide the physical level of management and the DCE Manager
integrates a submap of the logical view of the DCE clients and servers.
The DCE manager dynamically discovers and places DCE clients into the
Netview for AIX topology maps, representing your cell(s).
The management tool continuously monitors all DCE servers
and gives visual notification of status changes.
In addition to this, the DCE Manager provides
a facility to collect historical data to aid in
performance tuning and load-balancing activities.
The DCE Manager is unique in its ability to provide centralized
status information to administrators on the health of their DCE
configuration. It is a critical component in the
future of distributed management for
the enterprise. It is the foundation for DCE system management
