PEEK® Features and Pricing

See your users' error messages, their screens, and their input! With PEEK® for UNIX, all data in the current buffers is displayed on your screen. This shows you past history, allowing you to diagnose and solve user problems often after they have disappeared from the screen. Use the Poke Mode to become another user session. Gracefully log out unattended sessions. Input any keystroke on another session, including an <interrupt>.

Productivity - Use PEEK to control multiple sessions at the same time and run programs on each of them. Switch back and forth between these sessions! Authorized users can PEEK and Poke on any user session that is already logged in.

Console Access - Type system console commands from any authorized user.

Training - Each student's session PEEKs on the instructor’s screen and sees exactly what the instructor sees.

Script Access - Set up shell scripts to poke commands on a user's window or to execute console commands. Work with a user's screen in your scripts.

Emulation Friendly - Handle varying terminal emulation types; PEEK can translate between a variety of terminal emulation protocols. Special modes for users of Colleage's UI.

Control Use - Restrict PEEK access by user ID or group, based on the monitored user's ID.

Auditors - Invoke PEEK as a background process to get an audit trail log of a user's activities.You can log the screens or the keystrokes only. Notify the monitored user of PEEK if desired.

PEEK for UNIX supports local or dial in PC's or terminals, ssh/telnet/rlogin users, character-based X-Windows users (xterm, etc.) -- any logged-in user typing in a text window.

Pricing for PEEK for UNIX is based on the number of PEEKable users on a single system. The number of PEEKable users you should purchase is the total number of concurrently logged in users you wish to set up as PEEKable. Pricing for PEEK for UNIX includes a full one year warranty, with new releases and technical support. Should you decide to increase the number of PEEKable users at a later date, you would pay the difference between the then current list price for the tier level at which you purchased and the then current price of the new tier level for the number of users you wish to monitor.
