Internet Express for Tru64 UNIX is a collection of the most complete and up-to-date set of Internet services and tools, combined with a graphical Web-based administration utility for ease of management and easy installation of services and user accounts. Included with every AlphaServer running Tru64 UNIX, the Open Source software is qualified and fully integrated with Tru64 UNIX for superior performance.

Internet Express includes the Internet Monitor 1  that allows system administrators to monitor the performance of Internet servers in use in their enterprise.

The Internet Monitor provides the following features:

  • Allows administrators to monitor the performance of Internet services running anywhere on the network.
  • Data collection agents placed anywhere on the network poll Internet services and report performance data to the data collection server
  • Graphically monitors the performance of Internet services from the same perspective as an actual user of those services
  • Can generate alerts or cause other automated actions to be performed when administrator-defined performance thresholds are crossed
  • Collects and archives performance data and generates historical performance reports and graphs
  • May be used as the basis for ensuring conformance to Service Level Agreements (SLAs)
  • Provides a Web-based administration utility for configuring the Internet Monitor.

The Internet Express software package consists of the most recognized security products, mail servers, news and chat servers, and a variety of tools for providing dynamic Web content.

You can access the Internet Express Administration utility through any graphical Web browser that supports JavaScript.

The Open Source Internet components and administration software included with the product are configured and available for use when the installation is complete. You can install Internet Express using a command-line script or using a Web browser interface. If you choose the Web browser installation interface, you can use a Mozilla Web browser or Microsoft Internet Explorer running locally or remotely. All components are optional, although some components depend on others. Refer to the documentation for more information.
