HAWCS v4.0 Released

Hotsos is pleased to announce a new release of HAWCS. Version 4.0 includes an alerting and notification module, which alerts you when thresholds you've defined are broken. You can set thresholds for work products, specific modules, as well as LIOs for any session, concurrent jobs and system-wide job executions/durations.

It also has a process control manager, which executes all HAWCS application processes. This helps to eliminate resource contention and ensure that processes are executed in order of priority.

HAWCS also has a new mid-tier session LIO report that tracks the cost of mid-tier (web-based) and other sessions that you specify by user name, module, program, or any combination of the three.

Existing customers on maintenance can download the new version from
