Radar is a real-time interactive graphical tool for remotely monitoring one or more Radiator Radius servers.
Radar allows administrators to maximize the performance and availability of their authentication system.
Radar provides administrators with tools to announce, recognise and diagnose issues with their authentication system. Using Radar administrators can be alerted immediately to performance or accessibility problems with their Radiator servers, or with downstream radius servers. Administrators can see historical trends in server performance and throughput, allowing prompt action to be taken, and preventing end user access problems.
Small installations with one Radiator server or large installations with dozens of servers can be monitored from a single workstation, allowing centralised control of any size Radiator installation.
Radar runs on any Unix or Windows platform.
Here are some key features of "Radar":
· Monitor large or small Radiator installations.
· Radar connects to remote or local Radiator servers by TCP/IP, so you can deploy a single radar monitoring any number or Radiators.
· Radar connections to Radiator are authenticated by Radiator with CHAP
Significant technical features in Radar
· Full Perl source code supplied
· Uses Perl and Tk for maximum portability
· Monitor any number of Radiators with a single Radar
· Radar checks for clock skew between itself and the monitored Radiators. Clock skew can mean that the host clocks are out of sync, which can mean inaccurate accounting data
· Radar connections to Radiator are authenticated with CHAP, and can be authenticated with any standard Radiator authentication method that supports CHAP
· Radar can be configured to remember its most recent configuration. The next time Radar is started it will monitor the same list of servers with the same tools
· Detects server failure, crashes, disconnection, unavailability, stalling, hanging and excessive clock skew
· Announces problems by email and/or external program and/or popup windows
· Plot one or more statistics for the server as a whole or from individual Client, Realm, Handler, AuthBy or Host clause
· Unix including Linux (RedHat, Debian, Mandrake, SuSE, etc), Solaris, FreeBSD, NetBSD, SunOS, AIX, IRIX, SCO Open Server, Digital, HP-UX, etc.
