(Other stories by Paula Musich)
"Among the newly named offerings is Patrol Enterprise Manager, previously called Command Post when it was sold by Boole & Babbage, a company that was acquired about a year ago. Patrol Enterprise Manager now automatically recognizes Patrol Knowledge Module agents and can accept events generated by those agents to help manage a broader range of IT resources. ...can be integrated with competitors' management frameworks as well as other management applications, such as help desk software."
"Patrol Enterprise Manager competes with MicroMuse's NetCool tool for consolidating events from multiple sys-tems. Both provide event correlation, but BMC offers a broader range of tools that integrate with it, claimed Bob Kruger, vice president and general manager of the Patrol business unit in Houston."
"BMC also continued to pledge its allegiance to mainframe management with new tools for managing mainframe databases and Linux on OS/390. ... The new Patrol Knowledge Module for Linux on OS/390 extends Patrol applications monitoring to Linux applications on the host. It is also due in the third quarter."
