SunSoft Inc has released the first production version of Enterprise Manager, its multi-user distributed fault and event management system for the Solstice network management system (CI No 2,620). The Mountain View, California-based company has also unveiled a roadmap for versions 1.2 and 2.0 of Enterprise Manager. Enterprise Manager 1.1.1 includes an enhanced application programming interface to configure third party applications into its Viewer interface and mapping technology from Strategic Mapping Inc, Santa Clara, California, enabling users to configure geographical maps in layers underneath standard network system maps. Version 1.1.1 also includes support for Informix as well as Oracle and Sybase databases. Meantime, SunSoft is gearing up for a release in February next year of Enterprise Manager 1.2, the final 1.x release. Enhancements will include a Log Manager to receive, process and store events as log records. Additionally, the Viewer will be able to be placed in either operational or administrative mode. The operational mode restricts the operator from adding and deleting new topology objects, moving objects or activating templates. There will be third party applications for Alarm Manager. Both Alarm Manager and Log Manager will be able to activate applications and users will be able to search the server globally and locally. Finally, an application programming interface called Dialog Logic will provide Viewer information back to third party applications. Enterprise Manager 2.0, the first end-user release, is planned to be released in the second half of 1996. It will include hub and router support, topology back-up and restore, request template import-export, and operators will be able to access, rewrite and create access controls for various applications, the company says. Version 2.0 will also have object extension application programming interfaces to modify the behaviour of managed objects and customise the management of various devices.
