PeruseWebCM has the same product features as PeruseWeb but PeruseWebCM does not use Guardian UserIds to logon to the server. Instead, users logon using a "friendly name" like 'John' or a functional group name like 'Finance' or 'Marketing'.

The product Client Manager is used to create user logon names and associate which spoolfiles a user has the ability to view.

For example, John Smith is added (with an optional password) to the Client Manager database and two Spoolers $SPLS and $SPLX are associated with John. For the $SPLS Spooler, John Smith is allowed to delete spoolfiles but John is not allowed to delete spoolfiles residing in the $SPLX Spooler. Also defined are the spoolfiles John Smith is capable of viewing which is based on the spoolfile attributes Location, Form Name, Report Name, and/or the Guardian UserId that owns the spoolfiles. When John Smith logs on, he enters "John Smith" and his password. Once the logon is processed, a list of Spooler jobs matching his defined criteria is displayed.

Key Benefits

The PeruseWeb products are designed for technical support analysts, programmers, operators and system managers, end users, or remote users that need a quick and simple way to view spoolfiles.

Users learn the point and click interface in minutes! Users no longer need to learn and memorize the complicated interfaces of a Terminal Emulator, TACL, or Peruse's commands and parameters.

The PeruseWeb products are a NSK Guardian web server that only requires TCP/IP to be installed on the NonStop server. No other hardware or software products are required (e.g. OSS).

There is no software to distribute, install, or maintain on a PC. Typically, the maintenance cost and expensive support staff to keep PC software up-to-date and resolve end user issues will pay for a PeruseWeb product in less than six months.
