Top   2010-09-17: Bugrelease 1.2.7 of scc-win

Tomiako Daigo reported a hang of SCC and indicated that this was caused during the determiniation of the process hierarchy. He assisted with testing and debugging of the fix in module scc_0900_s_system.pl. As he indicated Windows does not maintain a strict hierarchy of processes, resulting in circular lists of processes, causing the loop in previous versions of the software. This limitation of the process data has been added to the help info in the snapshot.

A minor change is that the name of the base directory in the source tar now contains the release of the software.

Top   2005-01-10: Bugfix release 1.5.42 of scc

Due to a (recent) change in the production of scc for Solaris (and insufficient testing), the script /opt/scc/bin/scc was not part of the scc package for Solaris. This error was also present when the Solaris package was produced from the source tarball. Upgrade to release 1.5.42 when you are using scc on Solaris.

The script /opt/scc/bin/scc used an incorrect option to call scc-log when the -v option was used. When you do not use the -v option, there is no need to upgrade from 1.5.41 to 1.5.42.

Top   2005-01-04: New website and stable release 1.5.41 of scc and 1.3.24 of scc-srv

It has been a long time since the last release of scc. Open Challenge, Eye On Solutions (EOS) and Professional Services from T-Systems NL have joined forces in the Open Eye Group. OpenEyeT Professional Services is member of the Open Eye Group and continues to develop scc. The startup and integration of the three companies required much effort and time. Therefore development of scc has been slowed down for the past months.

The software is also available in native install formats for FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD. The software has been tested on TRU64.

The packaging of the software has been incorporated in the source tarball. After downloading and unpacking the source, the software can be modified (to install in non-default directories) and all depots, rpms and packages can be generated.

Top   2003-11-24: Release 1.3.6 of scc-srv beta

The following extensions have been implemented:
  • scc-smt
    When a realm does not contain the file custom/scc-smt-select, no "System Management Tools" are visible on the main index of the realm. To preserve SMT for existing domains currently depending on the global scc-smt-select, you have to copy the global file to the custom subdirectory of the realm.
  • scc-rules
    This new program is called by scc-update for each realm that contains a file custom/scc-rules.conf . The program checks the snapshots and logbooks for appearances of messages, changes on critical systems and whether systems keep sending the scc-data. The output is accessible through the index.html of a domain. Without a scc-rules.conf, no Rules entry will be shown in the index.html. When the rules in this file are not obeyed, the Rules label in the index.html will color red.
