SPM (formerly known as SPAM) is a set of tools that help manage change in an AIX environment. It uses a client-server architecture and is focused on five functional areas: collection of configuration, reporting configuration changes, comparing configurations, extracting configuration, and searching for configuration changes. Each of these functional areas also includes reporting and export capabilities. The collection of configuration is achieved by installing a client package on all systems being managed. The SPM Server provides a Web interface for reporting and examining configuration changes.
