ActiveBatch 3.0 Comes to Market

Advanced Systems Concepts has announced the availability of ActiveBatch version 3.0. The enterprise job scheduling management product was built for Windows 2000/ NT but can execute jobs on Unix and Open VMX systems as well.

ActiveBatch 3.0 allows system administrators to schedule events either on a regular basis or as a response to a designated event. The latest version of the product enables both hardware and software events to be actionable. This means that an event can be scheduled to run as a response to either a hardware or software problem.

The latest iteration also includes an alert system. With this capability, the system will notify the administrator by e-mail or pager if an event fails, runs over, or is incomplete. Other new features include a GUI interface with a command line and support for Microsoft’s management console snap-in for the COM-based interface. With ActiveBatch, any object oriented programming language can be used. The product is currently available and can be downloaded from the company’s Web site.
