Abstract

In today's Systems Management product offerings, many products rely on receiving events from remote locations to inform an administrator of a particular problem. But what happens when an event cannot make it from the remote location to the administrator's console? There are network management products that help determine if the problem is a network problem, but what if it is a software problem? This disclosure describes a way to autonomically address this latter situation through "trace events."
