Re: POLYCENTRE

Sunil,

The POLYCENTER suite was sold (given) to Computer Associates during the Bob Palmer timeframe. The only remnant that's still included with VMS is the "POLYCENTER Software Installation Utility", aka PRODUCT, aka PCSI. You get that for free with VMS.
Other products that were included in the suite were (and I cite by heart)
- performance data collector (PSDC)
- performance advisor (PSPA)
- console manager
- system watchdog
CA tried to integrate these products in their Unicenter suite. To my knowledge, CA charges for these products, i.e. they're not for free.
I think you better contact CA to get info on the current status of these products.
I hope they can help you, because the last time I contacted them, I had to spell VMS for them.
Success,
Kris (aka Qkcl)

Re: POLYCENTRE

Thank you Kris...This I was not knowing ..I was going through some site which tells it is still a trade mark of Digital and so I thought the product is from Digital.

Thank you

Re: POLYCENTRE

Sunil,

there were many different products in the POLYCENTER suite. You can find a list of them in the Software Rollout Report list:

Which specific product would you like to use ? For what purpose ?

None of them are 'free'.

Re: POLYCENTRE

Sunil,

see:

http://h71000.www7.hp.com/wizard/wiz_8766.html

'most' Polycenter products are now supplied by CA.

And CA will probably not be able to supply versions, that run on V7.1
