The Knowledge Module (KM) for UNIX contains the knowledge that PATROL uses during system monitoring, analysis, and management activities. This knowledge can include command descriptions, applicationsparameters, recovery actions, and other information useful in administering UNIX systems.

The KM parameters allow you to perform system performance analysis quickly and easily because they can provide a detailed statement of all system activity through time. You can clearly identify peaks, troughs, and trends in the performance of system resources.

By enabling you to detect problems, optimize systems, analyze trends, plan for capacity, and manage simultaneous, multiple host, the KM helps you ensure that your UNIX systems run efficiently 24 hours a day.
