Concord Communications' Spectrum Service Manager 7.1

Spectrum's Service Manager

Running Spectrum Service Manager in our Syracuse University Real-World Labs®, I discovered hundreds of items, including switches, routers, Web and WebSphere servers, and services such as DNS and Mail. I used these to create service groups.

One of the first services I set up monitored the canned WebSphere application--I called it "Plant Store," because WebSphere's Plant Store was at the heart of the group. My Plant Store service included the WebSphere service, DNS, Web server and the switch to which the WebSphere server was attached.
