The ACMS Knowledge Modules (KMs)
are used to graphically display information about the performance of an ACMS
system. KMs provide a simpler and faster way to perform ACMS functions that
are also provided by ACMS Remote Manager commands.
The KMs run on PATROL (developed by BMC Software), which contains a
generic GUI management console that uses a customized knowledge
module to collect and display information about a particular application.
ACMS supplies sample KMs for monitoring ACMS processes. By using
a PATROL console, ACMS customers can monitor and manage many aspects
of the ACMS environment. With the PATROL Developer Console, customers
can customize portions of the ACMS Knowledge Modules to suit their
PATROL consoles connect to one or more PATROL agents. The PATROL agent
connects to one or more ACMS front-end or back-end nodes.
