SMA_RT combines z/OS Communications Server and client/server technology. It functions
as a security monitor program product that looks for patterns of abuse and
sends real-time alerts. It supports systems environments across multiple CPUs
and over geographically diverse locations. SMA_RT tracks activity, monitors
systems resources and records vital information. Alerts are routed to the
SMA_RT management GUI, external security log concentrator products or other
threat management products that use TCP/IP SYSLOG protocol.
