Senior Project - ViCoT


A Graphical User Interface for the Configuration of HP OpenView

Senior Project: 1995-1996
Vivian Chao, John Franklin, Stephen Spruce and Christoph Wertz
Telecommunications Division
Fort Collins, CO

The goal of this project was to design and develop X11/Motif based graphical user interfaces to help configure two subsystems of the HP OpenView Distributed Management Platform -- Event Management Services and Object Registration Services. Event Management Services configures reception and logging of events, one of the most important tasks for network management systems. Object Registration Services provides a distributed directory service, supplying addressing information for objects in the management domain. Most of the configuration of these products has been via programmatic means, shell commands, and script files or by editing configuration files and then running shell scripts to input the information. The project provides graphical user interfaces to improve the usability of the current process, allowing interactive browsing and modification of the configurations. The project was developed using an object-oriented approach in C++ for use on HP and Sun workstations.
