If you are running the CAP telephony application on your Unisys ClearPath platform, then GPM for CAP gives you all the information you need to monitor, alarm on and report your system.

GPM for CAP is based on the GPM Performance Tool, which has:

  • System Module – allowing you to effectively monitor CPU, Memory, I/O, Disk Space utilisation, and other ‘hardware’ related items.
  • Workload Module – allowing you to group CAP tasks together to form meaningful workloads on the system e.g. UVMS, GNS, VCH, Voice.
  • Database Module – allowing you to monitor the performance of, and identify bottlenecks in, any of the CAP databases e.g. UVMSDB, GNSDB.
  • BNAV2 module – allowing you to identify any bottlenecks or errors in the BNA network interconnecting your platforms.
  • HOSTALARM module – allows you to feed GPM alarms via a TCPIP/IP link to a third party Alarm Management system e.g. Netcool, TeMIP, NMS5000.

There are also additional specialist probes that give you access to the detailed data that you need to monitor, alarm and report on your CAP system.

GNS Module

Access to statistics and error counts from the Unisys GNS Statistics Library, allowing you to effectively monitor, alarm and report on the GNS Application.

BICSS Module

Reads the BICSS Events records from the Activity file in near real time to give you a configurable and usable way to monitor, alarm and report on the huge volume of information in the BICSS log from all the Unisys  CAP Applications.


BICSSANALYZER allows detailed analysis of BICSS records by mailbox. It produces CSV file output suitable for importing into Excel or databases.
