Hello,

My name is Rob Tarte, President of Pacific CodeWorks, a Santa Cruz based 
provider of UNIX based systems performance management solutions.  Our 
flagship product, Olympus TuneUp has been on the market for over eight 
years and is the premier remote monitoring, tuning and performance 
management tool for SCO Openserver.  In response to requests from our 
current customers, Pacific CodeWorks is developing a version of TuneUp 
for Linux.

We're hoping that some of you could share your insights regarding Linux 
system administration so we can develop a high quality, useful product 
for the Linux community. We are looking for Linux consultants, system 
administrators and/or VAR's who wouldn't mind spending a few minutes 
sharing their experience.

We have a very short (12 question) survey to take either on-line or via 
telephone.

About TuneUp:
TuneUp is a UNIX system performance problem solver. Currently, TuneUp 
only runs on SCO Openserver.  TuneUp's technology is based on our kernel 
agent, a driver that gathers information inside the kernel.  TuneUp has 
both character based and X Windows user interfaces, requires only 7MB of 
free disk and exacts an extremely low amount of  system overhead.  
TuneUp's key features:
  * Monitors 100% of system activity to provide complete performance 
picture- no missed bursts of activity.
  * Alerts  via fax or E-mail, before system reaches critical thresholds.
  * Diagnoses system performance problems, such as tunable parameters, 
run away processes, system hogs, and large files and directories
  * Fixes system performance problems by building a new kernel with 
resource allocations based on actual use, not theoretical estimates.
