System monitoring tool

The Problem Informant/Killer Tool is a centrally managed multi-functional tool for monitoring systems, reporting and fixing problems, and managing system configurations. The program can also be used as a security management system. PIKT's primary task is to warn of problems, but also to fix those problems when needed. It excels at handling a diverse collection of machines, saves time and eliminates repetition, and gives you a global view of your site. PIKT includes an embedded scripting language with unique, labor-saving features; a sophisticated script (and system config file) preprocessor, scheduler, and installer, and other useful tools.
