Bytware, a division of Help/Systems, LLC and provider of systems management and security solutions for IBM Power Systems servers, is pleased to announce a new version of their IBM i message monitoring tool, Messenger 8. This latest update adds new ease-of-use

enhancements in the areas of job management and compliance reporting.


These enhancements help users and managers of IBM Power Systems servers—including AS/400, iSeries, and System i—to more easily identify jobs running on their systems that are critical to business operations. By facilitating fine-tuned searches, helping IT staff collaborate on incident response, and enhancing the built-in capabilities of IBM i, Messenger 8 brings message monitoring in line with the latest approaches to server management.


As Bytware Product Support Manager Heather Beck explains, “More and more of our customers are deploying virtualization technologies, and our products need to support that flexible infrastructure. Messenger now supports Live Partition Mobility to guarantee there is no outage with their systems monitoring while they are performing that load balancing act.”

Messenger 8 also adds new tools to streamline compliance audits and reporting. Managers can easily create detailed lists of all devices associated with the system, along with their numbers, to whom they belong, and schedules configured for them. These reports make it simple to satisfy auditors by clearly presenting all information up front.


Lastly, with security at the forefront in today’s corporate environment, a new enhancement brings support for servers that require SSL authentication. This feature gives managers the freedom to encrypt communications through any server or mail service—including Gmail—and satisfy important aspects of auditing and compliance.


Messenger 8 is available now, and a free trial can be requested through the Bytware website at
