LinuxWorld: Network server management made simple

(Other stories by Rawn Shah)

"Trustix, a Norwegian vendor of security tools for Linux, has released a new package for remote management of Linux servers. It is one of the first native GUI applications for system management available for Linux that goes beyond single system control, which makes it useful for ISPs and sites with large numbers of Linux servers."

"The new tool, called XPloy, goes far beyond Linuxconf and other similar tools. It provides a GUI environment for mapping your servers and networks into secure zones, monitoring individual applications and processes, monitoring availability and performance of servers, controlling a sitewide user account and group system, distributing software across the managed servers, and monitoring alarms and executing applications on defined events. The software is installed on each server as an agent with a console application running from one of the servers or a workstation."

"With the new product, Trustix is also exploring a new method of releasing software packages by offering a license subscription model that includes all upgrades, modules, and open source Linux applications designed to work with the package. Those can be downloaded from Trustix's Website and installed automatically once configured with their Trustix eXtended Package Installer (TXPI) technology."
