System Configuration Collector

System Configuration Collector collects and classifies most of your Unix/Linux/BSD configuration data in flat files called snapshots. This allows changes in snapshots of consecutive runs to be detected. These changes are added to a logbook, which is helpful for administrators during troubleshooting and for auditors during audits. Snapshots and logbooks are also available in HTML format. All data can be send to an SCC server, where a Web interface provides access to summaries and supports comparing snapshots of different servers and searching of all data. A WMI-based Windows client is also available.
