ux2html is a FREE, easy and flexible tool to collect Unix systems configuration. The latest version con be downloaded from here!.
Installation is trivial. Simply unzip the source file in an empty directory (eg. /usr/local/amm).

ux2html writes Unix OS configuration on standard output in HTML format. ux2html can collect information from almost all Unix systems: Linux/GNU, SunOS, AIX, HP-UX, System V, BSD, Leopard, Tru64/OSF1, Tandem NonStop, NUMA, Windows XP/2K/2003/NT/Vista/XX (via Cygwin !), ... The architecture is easily extensible with plug-ins and custom configurations. There are several available plug-ins: Oracle (the well known RDBMS), Sap (the well known ERP software), OAS (Oracle Application Server), MySQL (the well known Open Source RDBMS), ...


From a unix shell:

# cd /usr/local/amm
# sh ux2html.sh > MY_HOSTNAME.htm 2> /dev/null
In crontab:
2  2  *  *  1  cd /usr/local/amm ; sh ux2html.sh > `hostname`.`date +\%Y\%m\%d`.htm 2>&1


Running the script requires root privileges.
For security reasons the installation directory (eg. /usr/local/amm) should be writeable from root only.

Customization can be performed setting variables in (in order of precedence): ux2c-`hostname`.sh, ux2c.sh or directly on source code: ux2html.sh.

There are several available plug-ins: Oracle, Sap, OAS, MySQL, ...
A new plug-in can be easily added creating a file with the following name: ux2p-XXX-PlugInName.sh. Plug-ins are disabled renaming them as follows: ux2d-XXX-PlugInName.sh. p stands for Plug-in while d stands for Disabled Plug-in. Plug-ins must write in standard output in HTML format. That's all! A sample Plug-in is provided with the standard distribution.


Any contribution (ideas, bug fixing, new plug-ins, ...) is welcome! Send a mail to Meo!
