Product details and specifications

Distributed Systems Administration Utilities provide several tools for simplifying the management of groups of systems and Serviceguard clusters.

DSAU consists of three primary components:

  • Configuration synchronization tools - provide policy-based configuration management for groups of systems and Serviceguard clusters.
  • Consolidated logging tools - provide centralized logging and advanced log filtering features. Specific support is provided for creating a highly available log consolidation server using Serviceguard.
  • Command fanout tools - provide high performance tools for executing shell commands and distributing files across groups of systems and Serviceguard clusters.

Each DSAU component is based on an open source product. The DSAU components and the open source products used are as follows:

  • Configuration synchronization uses the Configuration Engine (cfengine)
  • Consolidated logging uses Syslog Next Generation (syslog-ng)
  • Command fanout uses Parallel Distributed Shell (pdsh)

DSAU provides the following graphical user interface (GUI) as plug-in applications available from the HP System Management Homepage (HP SMH):

  • Configuration Synchronization, for the csync wizard
  • Consolidated Logging, for the clog wizard
  • System log viewer, for viewing the consolidated logs and local syslog
