  4. RPM provides user thresholds • RPM supports user configured threshold-levels including • INFORMATIVE thresholds • WARNING thresholds • CRITICAL thresholds • Offender does not provide thresholds

  5. RPM supports color-encoded highlighting • RPM provides color-encoded highlightingColor-encoded stats are easy to understand: • Red - Critical • Yellow - Warning • Blue - Informative • Offender doesn’t provide color-encoded data

  7. RPM supports super-sized devices • RPM supports super-sized devices, including control/support for super-large: • ANSI & VT100 - 300 column x 300 line displays • T6530 devices 80 x 25 displays • T6530 devices 132 x 54 displays • Offender does not understand large format super-sized devices such as ANSI and VT100 devices

  8. RPM is an officially supported HP product • RPM - officially supported HP product • GMCSC fully trained on RPM • GMCSC provides official HP customer product support for the RPM product • RPM installed and running on 100s of internal and customer systems • Offender not officially supported HP product

  11. RPM cannot HALT systems • RPM cannot HALT processors ! • RPM uses officially documented, standard NSK API interfaces • Offender uses high-risk, undefined-buffer-length API interface known to cause buffer overruns • Offender known to cause total system Halts • Offender Halt %5100’s continue to occur • References to Offender system halt codes: • Case 10-080615-8113 – June 15, 2008 • NonStop & Neoview Alert - April 29, 2009

  12. RPM installation and startup is easy • RPM includes simple setup wizard • RPM installation is simple and straightforward • Wizard conducts an English language style question & answer interview • Regardless of whether RPM is being installed on just 1 x node or on 100 x nodes, installation and setup is simple and easy • Offender has no setup wizard, and does not handle multi-node networks.

  13. RPM supports Fat/Thin/DB front-ending • RPM Table output can be front-ended for fat, thin, DB front-end usage, ref: • RPM - White Paper for discussion/examples: • http://NonstopRPM.com/Document.htm • Offender does easily not lend itself to fat, thin, DB front-ending
