As part of Tru64 UNIX, Event Manager provides a centralized means of gathering, distributing, storing, and retrieving event information, regardless how the events are posted. Now all system event information (hardware and software) is more accessible.

Event Manager provides a single point of focus for multiple event channels by combining events from all sources into a single event stream. You can either monitor the combined stream in real time or view historical events retrieved from storage.

The Event Manager logger captures posted events and stores them in a system log file. You can Also capture your own set of events, using the logger or the monitoring utility, and store them in your own file for later analysis.

Event Manager's viewing facilities include a graphical event viewer, which is integrated with the SysMan Menu and SysMan Station, and a full set of command line utilities, which allow events to be filtered, sorted, and formatted in a variety of ways. You can also configure Event Manager to perform automatic notification of selected conditions.
